International Neuropathology Meetings and Courses

Meeting and course organizers: if you wish to have your neuropathology meeting or course announced here, please contact the Euro-CNS Office

26-28 August 2015, Berlin, Germany
60th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Neuropathology and Neuroanatomy (DGNN)
, Berlin, Germany. The meeting will cover the broad spectrum of diagnostic and experimental neuropathology comprising the areas neurodegeneration, neurooncology, myopathology and neuroinflammation/neuroimmunology. Various emerging neuroscience topics will be presented and intensely discussed, e.g. within panel discussions, by outstanding international leaders in the field. In order to meet the interests of all participating groups including young researchers, the program will be further completed by poster presentations ("data blitz") and workshops. Please also see the call for abstracts. Regular abstracts may be submitted until 1 May 2015. All details can be found on the conference 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. The program consists of lectures with an emphasis on teaching, alternating with practical (microscope-based) sessions. For the program and further details, click here.

15-18 March 2016, Aachen, Germany
5th Euro-CNS Basic Course in Neuropathology.
The program covers the entire diagnostic spectrum of neuropathology in a condensed form, following the format of oral presentations and microscopic slide sessions, completed by macroscopic brain-cutting sessions, conducted by an international faculty and gross neuropathology. For whom? Trainees in neuropathology and those neuropathologists who did or do not have the benefit of structured neuropathological training for and in their professional neuropathological activities.

2-6 July 2016, Copenhagen, Denmark
10th FENS Forum of Neuroscience, organized by the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and hosted by the Danish Society for Neuroscience. ​The FENS Forum is Europe’s preeminent neuroscience meeting: where European Neuroscience Meets the World. By uniting thousands of participants, the FENS Forum 2016 will facilitate and promote the exchange of knowledge and neuroscience research. Molecules and photons, neurodegenerative diseases and stem cells are only a few of the key topics to be covered by a top-level scientific programme, alongside lively networking and social events. The FENS Forum is a meeting point for the world’s top experts, mid-career scientists, post-docs and students. Click here for more information.

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.

6-9 October 2016, Ljubljana, Slovenia
11th International Congress on Non-Motor Dysfunctions in Parkinson's disease and Related Disorders (NMDPD 2016). NMDPD's aim is to discuss the new developments in the understanding of the non-motor aspects of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders and their management. During the congress, there will be opportunity to deliberate on brain diseases and how they contribute to cognition and behavior. It will be tried to identify the psychological markers of Parkinson's dementia and of dementia with Lewy bodies, and also the biochemical and genetic factors involved. The overlap with Alzheimer's disease and with fronto-temporal dementia will be two other central issues.For further information, you can visit the website:
