We warmly invite you and your team members to attend the Upper Limb Stroke Rehabilitation Summer School, to be held in Leuven (Belgium) from Wednesday 19 to Friday 21 September 2018.
The Summer School is a joint initiative between KU Leuven and Université catholique de Louvain, and we are delighted to offer you an exciting three-day program of plenary presentations and parallel sessions. Experts in the domains of non-invasive brain stimulation; Imaging, biomarkers & recovery; Prognosis & therapy; and Emerging themes & technology will deliver keynote lectures and provide insight in their research domains. Speakers include renowned scientists from the USA (John Krakauer), UK, (Nick Ward, Jane Burridge), Switzerland (Friedhelm Hummel, Andreas Luft) and Netherlands (Gert Kwakkel).
The Summer School is aimed at early-stage (PhD and Post-Doc) researchers as well as senior therapists and scientists in the field of motor rehabilitation after stroke. Besides plenary lectures, participants will have the opportunity to tailor their Summer School by choosing from four parallel sessions focusing on specific research methodology and findings; clinical skills; how-to seminars; and a young professionals track. A national and international faculty has been gathered to deliver these up-to-date seminars.
Besides the plenary and parallel sessions, participants will have the opportunity to present their research through interactive poster presentations. The deadline for submitting your abstract is 25 May 2018. Outcome is expected early June.
And last but not least, this Summer School will take part in the beautiful and vibrant city of Leuven, home to one of the oldest universities of Europe and a city with attractive historic buildings. Leuven is conveniently located in the heart of Belgium, has a direct and short train connection with Brussels’s international airport, and excellent connections to all other major cities and sightseeing locations in Belgium and our neighbouring countries.
We look forward welcoming you and/or your team members to the Upper Limb Stroke Rehabilitation Summer School!
