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.
