The 59th International Spinal Cord Society Annual Scientific Meeting (ISCoS 2020), will take place at Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan from 2 – 4 September 2020.
ISCoS 2020 will attract 800 Spinal Cord Injury professionals with interest and activity in prevention, research, management and/or rehabilitation of persons with spinal cord lesions.
