WELCOME LETTER

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the European Society of Cardiology Council on Stroke, it is our pleasure to invite you to the next ESC Heart & Stroke Conference that will take place in Barcelona on January 24-25th, 2020.

After the success of previous editions in Prague and Berlin, it is the opportunity of Barcelona to host this joining Conference where cardiologist, stroke neurologist and anybody interested in the main cause of adult disability are gladly welcome.

This 2-day meeting of the ESC Council on Stroke aims to up-date current knowledge and communicate future perspectives on stroke diagnosis and treatment to a broad audience including physicians, specialist nurses, clinical researchers and young investigators from several specialities (Cardiology, Neurology, vascular surgeons, etc). The meeting will focus in the live and interactive discussion of clinical cases, and will try to facilitate the participation of both the senior and young clinical experts.

And of course, with its Mediterranean weather, history, culture and fun, Barcelona is always a wonderful destination! You will enjoy it!

We look forward to welcome you here.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee & the Scientific Committee,

Dr Marta Rubiera & Dr Marc Ribo
