Euro-CNS Congress

Invitation

The European Confederation of Neuropathological Societies (Euro-CNS), The Scandinavian Neuropathological Society (SNS), Odense University Hospital and the University of Southern Denmark invite you to attend the 12th European Congress of Neuropathology, which will be held at the new Odense Concert, Music and Theatre Hall “ODEON” and Radisson Blu H.C. Andersen Hotel in Odense, Denmark, from 3-6 June 2020.

The Congress will cover all areas of neuropathology and focus on novel diagnostic approaches including molecular mechanisms explaining pathological and clinical manifestations of neurological diseases. An important issue will be the integration of novel molecular technologies into neuropathology. The scientific program will include lectures by top scientists about cutting-edge technologies and workshops focusing on the practical approach in an innovative interactive way. The list of our excellent plenary speakers is provided below.

The great potential of integrating the poster sessions into the congress will be fully exploited by poster presentations and a setup facilitating an interactive, dynamic, social and scientific atmosphere during the breaks. Networking will also be facilitated by an exciting social program.

A pre-congress course on tumors of the central nervous system will take place before the congress.

Please visit our congress website for detailed information.
