EANS Congress Prague 2014


Dear friend and colleague,

EANS Congress Prague 2014

European Association of Neurosurgical Societies has been founded by 18 national societies in Prague in 1971 during the 4th European Congress. The Association has grown to recent professional association of 40 national societies representing some 6500 European neurosurgeons and more than 800 individual members from both European and non-European countries. The motto of the 1971 congress was „Present Limits of Neurosurgery“ and one of the least attended session has than been the one about the use of microscopes in the surgical settings. We have decided to keep the motto and we hope to show the major changes of neurosurgery, present „unlimited“ limits of our fast developing, challenging and rewarding specialty. All aspects of neurosurgery will be covered in plenary sessions, breakfast seminars, afternoon sessions, how I do it videos, pros and cons discussions, complications avoidance seminars. The top quality of both, science and art of neurosurgery is guaranteed by the most prominent European clinicians and researchers as well as by our friends from EANS sister societies – CNS, FLANC and AASNS – who kindly joined us for the congress.

Don´t hesitate to come to the beautiful historic city of Prague with all its art, sights, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Join us also for the banquet which will be in the most prestigious and historic hall of the Prague Castle. We could also use non-neurosurgical motto – You never get bored in Prague.

Looking forward to hear from you soon

Sincerely on behalf of the Congress Organizing Committee
