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 2018 and impact the stroke world.
- Network with International Leaders in the Stroke Field: Attend ISC and discuss your findings with stroke research and practice experts from around the globe. More than 4,500 cerebrovascular experts from over 60 countries attend the International Stroke Conference.
- International Impact: Media coverage from around the world resulted in nearly 3 billion media impressions from 2,000 media stories for ISC 2017. Impressions from major media outlets included: the Wall Street Journal online, Forbes online, WebMD, MedPage Today, HealthDay, and many more so your research could have a global impact.
- Virtual Reach: ISC 2017 reached nearly 15 million people via AHA social media channels.
- Late-Breaking Science and Ongoing Clinical Trials abstracts will not be published. They will be available online on the International Stroke Conference web site on February 22, 2017.
A non-refundable $35 processing fee will be required for each abstract submitted. The fee covers administration and online costs associated with the submission, grading, notification and slotting processes.
In order to encourage a broad range of science and speakers, international authors and junior authors are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts for presentation.

Grading and Selection of Abstracts
Late-Breaking Science and Ongoing Clinical Trials abstracts submitted by the Nov. 9, 2016, 11:59 pm CST deadline are posted to a secured website for blinded review. A team of your peers, selected by the International Stroke Conference Program Committee, independently grades abstracts in their category and assigns each a score. Your abstract's score is the mean of all submitted scores - the result of at least eight graders’ assessments. (The reviewers rank the abstracts from 1-10 with 10 being the best available score.)
For Late-Breaking Science abstracts, after the percentile grades are compiled for the abstracts, the ISC Program Committee select and assemble the abstracts with acceptable scores into sessions. Late-Breaking Science abstracts are presented at oral and traditional poster sessions.
For Ongoing Clinical Trials abstracts, after the percentile grades are compiled for the abstracts, the Ongoing Clinical Trials category chair selects the abstracts with acceptable scores for inclusion in the Ongoing Clinical Trials poster session. Ongoing Clinical Trials abstracts are only presented as posters at ISC.
