// Welcome Message by the ESPN PresidentDear Friends and Colleagues,
As the Corona virus pandemic is spreading across the world, it is becoming clear that the events of our Society will need to be re-scheduled.
The Course that was going to take place in Varese next June will be postponed for next year, 2021, in the same venue. New dates will be announced soon. This means that there will not be an ESPN course this year. The alternative of organizing a web-course is not appropriate as essential part of the spirit of our course is to spend a week physically together, teachers and students, to engage in physical discussions. It is unfortunate that we had to take this decision, but events much bigger than us have taken charge of our lives. On a positive note, all the fees that applicants have paid will go to next year’s event.
// Message from the Scientific CommitteeDear colleagues and friends,
Welcome to the 27th ESPN Congress 2020 in Athens. We have ahead a full 3-day-congress covering most aspects of Pediatric Neurosurgery.
Two following highlights have received a special treatment in the program: a complete parallel session has been designed to review the treatment of spasticity with the presence of the main experts in these techniques to share with us their expertise. On Tuesday, a special multidisciplinary session will focus on Ethics, a topic often forgotten in our meetings, which perfectly fits in the cultural and historical environment provided by the ancient city of Athens, cradle of democracy and philosophy.
