In 2018, the Neurocritical Care Society has several successful international collaborations. Dr. Shaheen Shaikh directed an ENLS course at the 19th Annual Conference of the Indian Society of Neuroanesthesia and Critical Care in Mumbai, India. Course faculty included: Michel Torbey, Abhijit Lele, Richard Moser and Letha Mathews. The course was well attended and was a success by all metrics thanks to the efforts of Dr. Shaikh and our ISNACC leadership.

Five years after our first joint DGNI meeting in Manheim, we returned to Wurzburg, Germany, for our second joint meeting. This was an opportunity to exchange ideas and discussions with our German Colleagues on several neurocritical care topics ranging from prognostication to education and research. Mary Kay Bader also led the first ENLS course in Germany. We had more than 50 in attendance. Course faculty included Gretchen Brophy, Jose Suarez, Michel Torbey, Susanne Muehlschlegel and Katja Wartenberg.

Please mark your calendar for the 14th International Pan Arab Critical Care Medicine Socity Conference April 5-7, 2018, in Dubai One day will be dedicated to different neurocritical care topics. In addition, ENLS will be offered during the meeting. Also, in May we will have our second South American regional meeting in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, May 8-10:
