Dear Friends & Colleagues,
SCI-UK*, the umbrella group of professional and patient organisations in the United Kingdom wishes to welcome you to the 51st Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCOS 2012) at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, Westminster, London.
The ISCoS ASM is the most important International meeting of all disciplines expert in the field of spinal cord injury. The programme of 2012 will once again cover basic and advanced clinical and scientific issues, with pre-eminent speakers mixed into the programme with 'up and coming' clinicians, therapists and scientists who will lead our specialty into the future.
The programme will be interesting and varied with a focus on long-term outcomes in sci, health economics and putting evidence into practice, along with symposia, free-paper sessions and poster presentations. We anticipate an exciting meeting that promises, as usual, great debate and an enjoyable social programme.
Our society arose out of the paraplegic games at Stoke Mandeville Hospital which themselves evolved into the Paralympics. We very much hope you will not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy the meeting which is being held concurrent with the Paralympics and to visit the great city of London during the 30th Olympiad.
We would like to thank all those who have worked so hard within SCI-UK, especially our fellow committee members and those from around the world in ISCoS who have given their time freely.
We are also very grateful to our many sponsors of the meeting and to you, its participants, who will ultimately make it a success.
On behalf of the organising committee of SCI-UK, we look forward to welcoming you to the ASM in September 2012
