Welcome to Gyeongju (慶州)!

On behalf of the Korean Stroke Society, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 5th Japanese-Korean Joint Stroke Conference which will take place in Gyeongju from October 28 to 30, 2011.

We are facing a great time for the field of stroke research with exciting discoveries of diagnostic and therapeutic progress every day. In addition, our knowledge of the pathophysiology of stoke is getting deeper.

In terms of these current trends, the 5th Japanese-Korean Joint Stroke Conference would be a valuable time to share our cutting-edge academic achievements and to establish mutual confidence and friendship among stroke experts in both countries.

As the capital of the Silla Kingdom for almost a thousand year, Gyeongju preserves vast amount of significant and fascinating historical heritages.
