The World Stroke Organization host the World Stroke Congress every two years; this year in Seoul, Korea. The meeting attendance is projected at over 3000 attendees - many of those from Korea. The program has been quite varied, as you would expect from a global conference. I understand that the WSO has a no rejection policy which is a wonderful way to be inclusive. There was some mention among some groups that this may lower the quality of the meeting, this remains to be seen but there is such a great presence and support from so many excellent strokologists at the actual meeting the quality of the meeting will be maintained and developed in others way - the ESC turned 20 this year so still early days yet! The International Journal of Stroke held their Editorial Board meeting on Friday the 15th with excellent attendance and celebratory champagne. The outcome of the meeting was to continue to develop our successful ideas and innovations which have made us quite a hit with our readership and our publisher!

It became clear to me at this ESC that the International Journal of Stroke are not only recognized as a an excellent source for global science and information on stroke but for having the most fun at their editorial board meetings. This wasn't an intended agenda but is of course a reflection of excellent leadership, and the collaborative environment we have built with authors, reviewers, the editorial board, associate editors and the editor-in-chief. There was excellent feedback, and the sad departure of Associate Editor Lawrence Wong, who needless to say has been an incredibly supportive and quality contributor to IJS. Gavin Sharrock from Wiley-Blackwell is predicting a possible impact factor increase from 2.0 to 2.4 and over, which is an exciting development considering our youth.
Robot Doctor - another term for telemedicine
Barcelona weather is warm and the city as always, is charming. The European Stroke Conference as always, has an excellent line-up, although as is common for this meeting not a great representation of allied health professionals. Though I'm sure this is only going to get better as doctors from countries with good allied health relationships attend the meeting and vocalise their support of allied health and it's importance in the field of stroke.
