Welcome Message

Dear colleagues and friends,

In response to the rapidly evolving events surrounding COVID-19, the 4th Hands-on Workshop on Craniovertebral Junction Surgery of the European Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery (ESPN) in Lyon, France, will be postponed to the following year at the same venues and city, during the dates 26-29 June 2021. The decision has been taken in light of the coronavirus outbreak and considering that we have to keep public health a top priority while following government orders. We would also like to inform you that all confirmed registrations will be automatically transferred to the next year's organization.

These are indeed challenging times for all of us internationally and locally but, we are confident that any difficulties can and will be overcome when working together for a comeback!

We look forward to welcoming all of you to Lyon in France on 2021 for another successful edition of the ESPN Hands-on Workshop.

In the meantime, stay healthy and safe.

Federico Di Rocco
ESPN Training & Education Committee Chair
