ISCoS 2018 – 57th ISCoS combined with the 25th ANZSCoS Annual Scientific Meeting

Presidential Welcome – ANZSCoS

On behalf of Australia and New Zealand Spinal Cord Society it gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 57th joint Annual Scientific Meeting  of the International Spinal Cord Society and ANZSCoS, at the International Convention Centre, 13th -15th September 2018, Sydney, Australia. 

The ISCoS ASM is coming Down Under again after 18 years. This is a wonderful occasion to share knowledge and technology that leads to evidence-based best practice, standardization and innovation of key concepts in management of spinal cord injury. We hope to exchange ideas and discuss issues that affect our profession. In addition, we all have a common goal: to further the science behind innovative ideas and cure for spinal injury but also to deliver patient centred rehabilitation programmes which meet patient expectations. 

There will be opportunity to mingle with world leaders in the field of research and rehabilitation related to spinal cord injury. This is also a perfect opportunity for sponsors, researchers, physicians and allied health to network and learn from each other. There are over 1,000 delegates expected to participate from all over the world. 

Sydney, the capital of New South Wales and Australia's largest city, is best known for its harbour front, and Sydney Opera House, with a distinctive sail-like design.  Darling Harbour and the smaller Circular Quay port are hubs of waterside life, with the arched Harbour Bridge and esteemed Royal Botanic Garden nearby. Sydney Tower’s outdoor platform, the Skywalk, offers 360-degree views of the city and suburb. 

Sydney has been selected because of its spectacular location, weather, and friendly, warm culture.  Just one hour by air travel to Melbourne, Brisbane, and little further to South Australia, Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania. Christchurch and Auckland, New Zealand are three hours away. It offers gourmet international cuisine and great night life. Whatever you like to enjoy you will find it in Sydney, Australia.

ANZSCoS is excited and looking forward to welcoming you at the 57th joint ASM of ISCoS and ANZSCoS, at the International Convention Centre, 13th -15th  September 2018, Sydney, Australia. So please take this opportunity to see and experience beautiful Australia and New Zealand.

On Behalf of ANZSCoS executive committee. 

Dr Raj Singhal 

President ANZSCoS
