From June 7 to 9, 2019, we held the second Neurocritical Care Society (NCS) Asian and Oceanian Chapter Annual Meeting at Osaka and Kyoto with the Japan Society of Neurological Emergencies and Critical Care (JNE), a global partner of the NCS. Invited guests from the United States (Gretchen M. Brophy, Jose I. Suarez, Gene Sung), Korea (Sang-Bae Ko, Jae Hyeon Park, Kwang-Soo Lee), India (Harsh Sapra, Ponniah Vanamoorthy, Saurabh Anand), Philippines (Geraldine Siena Mariano, Jo Ann Soliven), Singapore (Jensen Ng Jiansheng), China (Su Yingying), and Japan (Koji Abe, Hitoshi Kobata, Yasuhiro Kuroda, Masao Nagayama) gave an invited lecture or talked at the global roundtable, “Current and Future Status of Neurocritical Care in the World; Education, Practice and Research.” More than 200 attendees joined the meeting (missed representatives from Nepal and Australia), which included the Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) Course. Also, attendees enjoyed two banquets at the Nakamurarou and the SODOH Higashiyama both in Kyoto. This memorable meeting became an extremely valuable forum.


The next meeting will be held at Delhi, India, in 2020.
