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

4-6 June 2015, Verona, Italy
Joint meeting 51th Congress of the Italian Association of Neuropathology and Clinical Neurobiology (AINPeNC) and 41th Congress of the Italian Association for Research on Brain Aging (AIRIC). Click here to download the tentative program. Abstracts are published in Clinical Neuropathology, issue 4 (July/August) 2015.

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.

7-5 July 2015, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
IBRO 2015. 9th World Congress of the International Brain Research Organization. 
For the first time, the meeting will take place in a Latin American country. The Program covers most important areas and topics of current neuroscience research. The goal is to deepen understanding of brain structure and function, from molecules to behavior, in lectures by distinguished scientists, symposia and minisymposia with thematic leaders of different countries, and posters open to scientists, postdocs and students all over the world. 

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. 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).

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.
