// Welcome Message by the ESPN President

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is a great honour and pleasure to invite you to the 27th Biennial Congress of the European Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery (ESPN), which will be held in Athens, Greece, from May 3 to May 6, 2020. 
We are working hard to organize an outstanding scientific and educational congress to facilitate the spread and exchange of knowledge, skills and attitudes, between experts, researchers, clinicians and trainees, and to continue the development of pediatric neurosurgery in Europe.
  • About ESPN Congress

    The ESPN Congress is organized on a biennial basis (traditionally in late April - early May)
    by the acting ESPN President in his country of origin.
    It is ESPN’s main educational activity since its first organization in 1967 in Vienna, Austria,
    which constituted the Society’s inaugural occasion.
    The Scientific Program is drafted by the ESPN Scientific Committee, in collaboration with the
    ESPN President. Plenary sessions host a series of invited lectures delivered by renowned experts
    in the field of Pediatric Neurosurgery and sister disciplines. Abstract submission on topics covering
    all major aspects of concurrent Pediatric Neurosurgery research and clinical practice lavishly
    provides for oral and poster presentations. Vibrant discussion is an integral part of all sessions,
    with the strategic positioning of Panel Tables on major issues addressed.
