New Horizons in Headache
7 - 10 September 2017, Vancouver


On behalf of the International Headache Society we are delighted to invite you to IHC 2017, the 18th Congress of the International Headache Society. IHC 2017 will take place on September 7 – 10, 2017, in Vancouver, Canada. 

Vancouver is on the coast and enjoys a broad horizon on the Pacific Ocean. This has been the inspiration for our conference aphorism “New Horizons in Headache”. In the same way that a vista over the ocean is potentially full of promise and new experiences, the basic and clinical research that will be presented at IHC 2017 promises an exciting future for headache medicine. Please plan to come and participate in the excitement, share your knowledge, and learn about the latest advances in headache treatment. 

Vancouver is no doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world with the Pacific at its doorstep and the stunning coastal mountains as a backdrop. Vancouver is also among the world’s greatest food cities. IHC 2017 will take place at the award winning Vancouver Convention Centre which is adjacent to the water, surrounded by hotels within short walking distance, and only a short distance down a coastal promenade to the beautiful and historic Stanley Park. It will be a great place to meet colleagues and make new friends. 

Please join us in Vancouver, a forward thinking green city that will be a perfect venue for the congress.  We look forward to welcoming you to both Vancouver and IHC 2017!
