Carta del Presidente de la ESSFN
The preparations of the forthcoming XXII ESSFN Congress that will take place in the historic and beautiful city of Madrid (September 28-October 1st, 2016), – instead of the original destination of Istanbul -, are at the latest stage.
Taking this opportunity of communication, I would like to ensure you that the local Organizing Committee, under the guidance of Prof Juan Barcia, along with the ESSFN Board have made every possible effort to offer you a scientific program of highest standards and, also, a beneficial and enjoyable social event. The main topics include: movement disorders, epilepsy, pain, psychiatric disorders, oncology, intraoperative neuromonitoring, and radiosurgery. It is particularly noteworthy that eminent guest speakers will share their knowledge and expertise on cutting edge fields of modern stereotactic and functional neurosurgery such as closed-loop neurostimulation, gene- and cell-based treatments and advanced neuroimaging and intraoperative monitoring methods. Moreover, separate sessions will be dedicated to traditional topics such as surgical treatment and radiosurgery for movement disorders, epilepsy, pain, psychiatric disorders and spasticity. Undeniably, the Congress will provide a great opportunity to update your knowledge and share your scientific ideas with colleagues from Europe and the rest of the world, while you will spend leisure time with old and new friends at the inspiring atmosphere of Madrid.
In line with our commitment to raise continuously the standards of our Congresses, the ESSFN Board has decided to bestow a series of awards including: Research Grant, Publication Award, Best Oral Presentation and Best Poster Awards. Note, the deadline for the grants ends by July 31st, 2016. Again, independent committees will select the candidates and the prizes will be bestowed upon the occasion of the ESSFN Congress 2014 in Maastricht. Please distribute the announcements and do not forget to encourage your co-workers and younger colleagues to apply for the above mentioned Awards whose further details can be found in the Congress
official website and the attached ESSFN Newsletter (No 11).
Overall, I invite you all to come to our next Congress in Madrid and push the field of stereotactic and functional neurosurgery forward together.
Looking forward to you seeing you there!
Best personal regards.
Damianos E. Sakas, MD
