Abstract Submission Guidelines
Why You Should Submit Your Science to the World's Premier Stroke Meeting

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association maintains the highest standards for abstract acceptance and program development. The goal is to bring a spectrum of the very best stroke science to ISC - from the most basic research to patient-based studies to large clinical trials. The science covers a vast array of topics in 21 categories, including emergency medicine, diagnosis, interventional treatments, nursing and rehabilitation. Submit your best science to the International Stroke Conference 2016.
