WELCOME TO THE CONGRESS

INVITATION

On behalf of the World Federation for NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR) and Professor Heinrich Binder,

President of the Austrian Society of Neurorehabilitation, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 6th World

Congress of Neurorehabilitation (WCNR2010), to be held in Vienna, Austria from March 21-25, 2010.

The program will feature lectures, symposia and workshops on clinical practice and research by

leading experts from around the world. All levels of function will be addressed, from the basic science

of neural plasticity and regeneration, to translational research targeting cognitive and physical abilities,

to social reintegration and vocational rehabilitation. This breadth of content reflects a contemporary

vision of the field of Neurorehabilitation that is leading to new breakthroughs in functional recovery

after neural injury.

The venue, the magnificent Hofburg (Vienna’s Imperial Palace), could not be more glamorous, and the

timing of the congress at the beginning of spring is perfect for sightseeing in one of the worlds most

beautiful cities. There will be excellent hotel accommodations nearby in every price category, but we

expect this to be our most heavily attended congress yet, so please save the date now and register

early.

I look forward to seeing you in Vienna.
