Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee and the Hong Kong Stroke Society, we cordially invite you to join us at the Asia Pacific Stroke Conference 2023 (APSC 2023), which will be held in Hong Kong from Friday to Sunday, 1 - 3 December 2023 at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks. 

Although we have adapted to virtual conferences in the past three years due to the pandemic, we are hopeful that by December 2023 the situation will allow us to hold a face-to-face Conference.  The Organizing Committee is carefully preparing the Conference with all our best endeavours to offer an excellent scientific programme.  The main theme of the Conference is “Advancing stroke care in times of change” and we will explore the current developments and advances in a variety of specialty areas within the sphere of stroke.  We aim to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of researchers, scientists, clinicians, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals from across the international community to exchange ideas, acquire new knowledge and be inspired on stroke-related subjects.

The 3-day conference will feature keynote lectures, focused symposia, plenary sessions, free paper presentations, poster presentations and networking sessions that will undoubtedly enrich knowledge and stimulate thinking.  Opportunities are also provided in the Exhibition for leading companies in the industry to showcase their latest technologies and products. 

Hong Kong is a metropolitan and information hub customized with vibrant lifestyle, beautiful scenery, and mixed cultures from the east and west.  Hence, the fun of the Conference will continue with our fabulous social events.  From the traditional Chinese and Asian culture to the modern westernized design, Hong Kong has plenty of excitement to offer you and your companion.

We are sure it is going to be a rewarding and enjoyable Conference.  Come and explore this unforgettable experience in our energetic city.  We look forward to seeing you at the APSC 2023 in Hong Kong.

Welcome Message by APSO President
Dear colleagues and friends,
I am delighted to invite you on behalf of the Asia Pacific Stroke Organization (APSO) to the Asia Pacific Stroke Conference (APSC) 2023, which will be held in Hong Kong from December 1 to 3, 2023.
The world is getting out of the shadow of the Corona Pandemic. The fact that the situation is improving with the dedicated efforts of the medical community reminds us of the duty and pride of medical personnel to protect human health.
APSCs have been held as virtual or hybrid meetings for the past three years. And APSC 2023 will be held in a full physical form rather than a virtual meeting.
The theme of APSC 2023 is "Advancing stroke care in times of change." The scientific committee is preparing a wealth of exciting content so that all participants will enjoy the conference.
APSO has been growing and extending its impact on stroke care, education, and research in the Asia-Pacific region since its establishment in 2009. Currently, 22 countries are joining the APSO as sponsoring or affiliated members.
In the Asia-Pacific region, the resources and environment of each country related to stroke and its care are different. APSO pursues 'a unified vision in diversity' and emphasizes balanced development to overcome these differences.
The annual APSC is the flagship conference of APSO, although APSO conducts various academic and educational activities. Hong Kong Stroke Society and APSO are working together to prepare the best academic conference. So it will be an excellent opportunity to exchange opinions on the issues we face regarding stroke in the Asia-Pacific region, promote mutual understanding, grow together, and share friendships.
We hope all of you will join us and enjoy APSC 2023.
Thank you.
