Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to Vienna for the 11th European Paediatric Neurology Society meeting!
Prof Gunther Bernert, together with the local organising team and under the supervision of our EPNS scientific committee, has built an exciting program that will satisfy all your scientific and educational needs. Our biennial congresses remain one of the most important all-in meetings in paediatric neurology: teaching sessions, keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations and lunch symposia will cover all major sub-specialties within our challenging world of paediatric neurology. Perhaps more importantly, meeting people, making new friends and discussing clinical practice problems or new research collaborations will make this congress very attractive and not-to-forget.
The EPNS is continuing on the right track, we hope. Our goal to educate and support scientific research is very visible in our training courses ( taking place in Budapest for the next 3 years), our recently launched fellowship program, our research meetings (last year in Bucharest), our upcoming EPNS Cambridge Masterclass and our biennial congresses, now in Vienna. For more details, please visit our website at www.EPNS.info or follow us at twitter: @EPNSnews .
We are happy we can keep our membership fees very democratic, with our Journal, the European Journal of Paediatric Neurology, still included in our membership fee. Over the last 2 years, we have seen our membership increase by more than 25%. Thank you for your continuous support and I would like to encourage all non-members to become a valued EPNS member!
“Vienna, to me, it was the tuning fork for the entire world; Vienna wasn't just a city, it was a tone that either one carries forever in one's soul or one does not. It was the most beautiful thing in my life". This is a famous quote of the writer Sandor Marai and very nicely illustrates the challenge of our meeting in Vienna. But, looking at the scientific program, the venue and the après-science possibilities in Vienna, I am very reassured you will be carried away forever after our meeting!
