29-31 October 2014, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Euro-CNS CME Course 'Forensic Neuropathology'.
 This course is organized for the second time in collaboration with the Netherlands Forensic Institute. As with each Euro-CNS course, it will consist of lectures with an emphasis on teaching, alternating with practical (case work-up and microscope-based) sessions. 

22-24 November 2014, Budapest, Hungary
Joint Meeting of the Hungarian Society of Neurosurgery and the Hungarian Society of Neuro-Oncology
. Several aspects of General Neuropathology and Neuro-oncopathology are included in the program with particular emphasis on the "Haarlem Consensus" vis-á-vis classification and grading of brain tumors. For more information click on the date of the meeting above.

26-28 November 2014, Valencia, Spain
The Meeting of the Spanish Neuropathological Society organized in conjunction with the Spanish Society of Neurology will be held in the Convention Center of Valencia. Contact persons: Dr. Miguel Idoate, President of the Spanish Neuropathological Society: maidoate(at)unav.es. Congress Secretary: Mrs. Itziar Lacastailacasta(at)unav.es. Phone: 948-296496.

4-6 March 2015
116th Meeting of the British Neuropathological Society.
The meeting will be of interest to Neuropathologists, Neurologists and Neuroscientists as it attracts a wide range of speakers from within the UK and abroad. Trainees in Neuropathology and Neurology are particularly encouraged to attend. The symposium will brings together a number of internationally renowned scientists working in a field of interest in neuropathology. At the remainder of the meeting a range of original work will be presented in oral and poster formats covering many aspects of neuropathology and related neuroscience fields. For more details please visit the BNS website.

25-27 March 2015, Amsterdam the Netherlands
Euro-CNS CME course 'Leukoencephalopathies'.
 This (updated) course will provide practising (neuro) pathologists, clinicians and researchers with up-to-date reviews of the classification and the diagnostic problems in the pathology of White Matter Diseases. It will consist of lectures with an emphasis on teaching, alternating with practical (microscope-based) sessions. 

26-29 March 2015, Budapest, Hungary
The 9th World Congress on Controversies (CONy) in Neurology
Topics include: Biomarkers, Auto-immune Diseases, Dementia & Alzheimer`s Disease, Epilepsy, Infectious Diseases, Headache & Pain, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neuron Disease, Neuro-oncology, Neuropsychiatry, Headache & Pain, Parkinson`s Disease, Stroke and Rehabilitation. The meeting brings together clinicians in the fields of neurology. The organizers would like to put special emphasis on Neuropathology at the 2015 meeting. Neuropathologists and colleagues from related fields are encouraged to attend. Download the first announcement here.

8-10 June 2015, Odense, Denmark
Euro-CNS CME Course 'Tumours of the Central Nervous System'
. This is the pre-symposium course held right before the XIth Northern Light Neuroscience Symposium on Brain Tumours. This updated course covers the current state of the art of classification (typing and grading) of CNS tumours, supplemented by lectures on clinical and neuroradiological aspects, and molecular diagnostics relevant for daily clinical practice. The lectures will be given by a group of well known surgical neuropathologists. Histological slides of the whole spectrum of CNS tumours are available, and multiple time slots are planned for personal practical exercise as well as for interaction with the experts. For more information please visit the course page on this website.

10-13 June 2015, Odense, Denmark
XIth Northern Light Neuroscience Symposium on Brain Tumours. 
The Scandinavian Neuropathological Society, Odense University Hospital and the University of Southern Denmark are organizing the XI Northern Lights Neuroscience Symposium, which will be held at Hindsgavl Castle in the center of Denmark, 10-13 June 2015. The theme for the symposium is “Brain tumors” and in line with the tradition, it will be an interdisciplinary meeting. Different aspects of brain tumors will be covered including e.g. neuropathology, basic science, neurooncology and neurosurgery. A pre-symposium course on tumors of the central nervous system (Euro-CNS) will take place before the symposium (8-10 June 2015). For program, registration and abstract submission details (submission deadline 15 February), please see the Symposium website.

21-23 October 2015, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Euro-CNS CME Course  'Developmental Neuropathology'.
 This (updated) course will provide practising (neuro) pathologists, clinicians and researchers with up-to-date reviews of the classification and the diagnostic problems in the pathology of Neurodevelopmental Diseases. It will consist of lectures with an emphasis on teaching, alternating with practical (microscope-based) sessions. Details will follow in a later stage (see section CME Courses on this website).

6-9 July 2016, Bordeaux, France
11th European Congress of Neuropathology (ECNP).  The European Confederation of Neuropathological Societies (Euro-CNS) and the French Society of Neuropathology will host the 11th European Congress of Neuropathology in Bordeaux, the full of light and utterly bewitching capital of wine. The scientific program will cover many aspects of neuropathology and will interact with other areas of neuroscience. Leading neuropathologists and neuroscientists will be invited for plenary lectures. Parallel sessions of symposia and workshops will provide key updates and debate on recent progress in diagnostic neuropathological practice and in other interactive scientific approaches. Several sessions on different topics will permit a large selection of posters to be presented on platform, and a two hours interactive slide seminar will be organized. The increasingly popular pre-congress Euro-CNS course will be on neuro-degenerative diseases in a meeting area offered by the Institute of Neurodegenerative Diseases.
