Abstract guidelines

We invite you to submit an abstract/s for consideration at this year's Meeting. The SSA 2022 ASM is a hybrid event where some sessions will be streamed to delegates attending virtually. In person presentation is encouraged for this first comprehensive face to face Australia and New Zealand stroke community reunion in three years, but virtual presentations are acceptable and we will provide flexibility around registrations. Watch this space!
