iCSD 2020

From 04/18/2020 to 04/20/2020

Lyon - France


Dear colleagues,

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 4th International Conference on Spreading Depolarization (iCSD) held on 18-20 April 2020 in Lyon, France.

Following the purpose of the COSBID to promote translational research on spreading depolarization, iCSD 2020 will involve discussions about fundamental mechanisms of spreading depolarization as well as ongoing and future applications at the bedside. The interest of neuroscience and neurocritical care communities towards spreading depolarization is growing. Therefore, we are glad to announce that iCSD will be connected to the 11th EuroNeuro meeting, which will be held in Paris from the 22nd to the 24th of April 2020. EuroNeuro is a biennial multidisciplinary meeting aimed at gathering neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-intensivists, neuro-anesthesiologists and basic neuroscientists, to discuss new updates on neuro-anesthesia and neuro-intensive care interdisciplinary neuroscience.

iCSD 2020 will take place in Lyon which has become one of the favorite French destinations among international visitors. Lyon is the 2nd cultural city in France according to the Journal des Arts, just after Paris. Indeed, Lyon is a concentration of the French “art de vivre”: a city on a human scale that offers all the best that France has to offer with its many museums, restaurants, concert or theater rooms. You can also stroll through the city's historic districts, such as Vieux Lyon and its traboules, the slopes of the Croix-Rousse, Fourvière and its breathtaking view. Lyon is a historic city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998, making it the 2nd most important Renaissance site in Europe after Venice.

In order to give you a magnificent overview of our city, we will organize a gala dinner on a barge that will travel on the two rivers of the city center.

We look forward to welcoming you in Lyon!
