Congreso ESSFN Neurocirugía Funcional y Estereotáxica – 2014

Del 17 al 20 de Spetiembre de 2014 se celebrará en la ciudad holandesa de Maastricht, el XXI Congreso de la ESSFN (European Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurorsurgery). En la web de la organización se puede encontrar toda la información sobre éste Congreso

Reproducimos el mensaje de bienvenida del Director del Congreso.

Dear colleagues,

With great pleasure, we announce the XXI Congress of the European Society of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, which will be held in Maastricht, The Netherlands, on 17-20 September 2014.

The venue is the Maastricht Exhibition and Conference Centre (MECC), providing excellent facilities and state-of-the-art services. It is strategically located between the old center of the city, which is easily accessible, and the business area. Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands with well-preserved cultural heritage, and Maastricht University, being the most international University of the Netherlands, has a tradition in Clinical and Experimental Functional and Stereotactic Neurosurgery.

With the XXI Congress, we aim to continue the successful series of previous ESSFN meetings. We are motivated to put together a scientifically appealing program and hope to create an active platform to exchange and discuss the latest research results and concepts in the fields of movement disorders, psychiatric disorders, pain, epilepsy, radiosurgery, neuronavigation and intraoperative monitoring. The most recent developments in different surgical technologies varying from closed-loop deep brain stimulation to gene- and cell-based therapies and relevant diagnostic methods will be highlighted. Particular emphasis will be put on the translational nature of the scientific program which will be combined by authoritative lectures from clinician- and basic-scientists.

We look forward hosting you in Maastricht.
