Welcome Message

We would like to welcome you to participate in the 9th World Intracranial Hemorrhage Conference (WICH 2025) & 4th Hemorrhagic Stroke Academia Industry Meeting (HEADS) to be held in beautiful Sydney, Australia, on March 27-29, 2025.

It is an exciting time to be involved in research and the care of people affected by hemorrhagic stroke. The last few years have witnessed significant progress in defining management of medical and surgical strategies, better understandings of pathophysiology and mechanisms of disease, and innovative diagnostic tools and systems of care are on the horizon.

WICH is a multidisciplinary conference, bringing together neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroscientists, researchers, rehabilitation specialists, and clinicians, nurses, allied health professionals and other healthcare providers, together with students and community members from around the globe. This provides a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and to share research, experience and ideas in intracranial hemorrhage. WICH 2025 will not only feature updates from highly respected experts but also allow others including students and fellows to share, discuss, debate, and dissect new developments and scientific advancements in intracerebral, subarachnoid, and subdural hemorrhage.

Sydney is the largest and most populous city in Australia, and the state capital of New South Wales. Sydney is famous for its steel coat-hanger bridge and Opera House around the fabulous harbor and has many nearby sandy beaches along Australia’s south-east coast of the Tasman Sea. Inhabitants of Sydney are called Sydneysiders, comprising a cosmopolitan and international population of people from numerous places around the world. Sydney offers WICH 2025 an ideal place to make new and reinforce old friendships in an invigorating environment.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we appreciate your contribution to this international platform and your work towards improving the care of people with hemorrhagic stroke.

We look forward to meeting you in Sydney.
