It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 59th International Spinal Cord Society Annual Scientific Meeting, ISCoS 2020: VIRTUAL. The Organising Committee together with the Scientific Committee, have been working diligently to prepare for ISCoS 2020: VIRTUAL, the first virtual ISCoS meeting.
Our meeting has been reimagined providing a fully virtual and cutting edge conference for the Spinal Cord injury (SCI) care. We could not have predicted the circumstances we have found ourselves in 2020, we can however choose how we adapt and respond. With every adversity comes opportunity and we are excited to choose opportunity to ensure we can keep our community connected while remaining safe. With this virtual platform we will offer the most up to date information for those providing care for the spinal cord injured.
