ICSD2018 - International Conference on Spreading Depolarizations
22-24 September, 2018
Boca Raton, FL, USA

iCSD is an annual meeting of translational neuroscience dedicated to the study of spreading depolarizations and their role in neurological disease. Mass tissue depolarizations were discovered by Leao over 70 years ago as "spreading depression" and are now widely studied in both the laboratory and clinic as a pathologic mechanism of brain injury. The Co-Operative Studies on Brain Injury Depolarizations (COSBID) has met annually since 2003, and the meeting was renamed as iCSD in 2017.
Abstract submission and registration are now open, and the abstract deadline is June 15. Please visit www.cosbid.org/icsd or contact info@cosbid.org for information. Participation is open to the scientific and medical communities.

Brain Ischemia and Stroke
13-15 December, 2018
Rome, Italy

The bis conferences have been running biennially in Rome since 2008.

During the past years, the bis conference series have acquired relevance and visibility, and attracted accomplished scientists in the field of cerebrovascular diseases. The congress has reached the status of traditional forum for exchanging ideas and providing updates on cutting-edge research and clinical advancements.

The focus of bis18 will be on THE BRAIN-SYSTEMIC AXES, with emphasis on brain interactions with heart, lung, gut, immune, and endocrine systems.
