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

7-11 September 2019, Nice, France
31st European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2019), organized by the European Society of Pathology (ESP) and the French Society of Pathology and to be held at the Nice Acropolis Convention Centre located downtown in the heart of Nice, on the French Riviera Côte d’Azur. The theme is “Pathology is Nice”. Pathologists and their collaborators, molecular biologists, geneticists, bioinformaticians, and information technologists will meet to share advances in our discipline that offers diagnostic, prognostic and predictive information essential for best patient care. The ESP working groups will prepare State-of the Art organ-based sessions while collaborating pathology and clinical scientific societies will interact in joint scientific events. The energetic ESP Trainees’ subcommittee will plan sessions attractive for junior pathologists, while special sessions focusing on advances in molecular pathology, information technology, quality assessment, education, histotechnology and public awareness will complete the diverse programme. Every day, a keynote lecture by distinguished international experts will highlight burning issues in pathology and beyond. There will be oral free paper and best poster sessions where novel translational research will be presented, while difficulties in the diagnosis of rare disease entities will be discussed in poster sessions.

19-21 September 2019, Magdeburg, Germany
Annual meeting of the German Society for Neuropathology and Neuroanatomy. The Congress theme is “Neuropathology Interaction and Integrity”.
It will take place in the Gesellschaftshaus in Magdeburg. Join national and international researchers and practitioners of the different fields of neuropathology and neuroanatomy and look forward to an exciting and inspiring opportunity to contribute and participate in a conference  with a diverse scientific and unique social programme.

19-22 September 2019, Lyon, France
The 14th EANO annual meeting, is organized by the European Association of Neuro-oncology. Following an education day on the main topics in Neuro-Oncology, the program will focus on brain tumors biomarkers and treatment with discussions on the main clinical trials. Novel developments in immune-oncology and in neuro-oncology will be presented, with a special focus on paraneoplastic neurological syndromes. Outstanding science will be presented in oral talks selected from the submitted abstracts with two evening poster sessions.

25-27 September 2019, Berlin, Germany
The Euro-CNS CME Course “Muscle & Nerve Pathology” will be held at the Charite Medical University in Berlin.  The newly updated course consists of lectures with an emphasis on teaching. Practical (microscope-based) sessions are part of the course. Slides from the various cases will be digitized. This will make it possible to evaluate the case material also after the course. The course will provide practising (neuro)pathologists, clinicians and researchers with up-to-date reviews of the classification and the diagnostic problems in muscle and peripheral nerve pathology. More information on the course page.

4-5 October, Marseille, France
The 9th Annual Brain Metastases Research and Emerging Therapy Conference, is held under the auspices of EORTC, the French Neuro-Oncology Group (ANOCEF) and the French Society of Neuro-Surgery are partners of this event. This initiative brings the multidisciplinary approach needed to develop Brain Metastases projects across several tumor types and disciplines such as breast cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, imaging, radiation oncology, pathology and molecular. It is expected that this cross-sectional meeting will stimulate innovative and insightful research in a collaborative environment and improve the standard of care and methodology of clinical research. The overarching goal of the meeting is to generate a set of research priorities that would stimulate integrated scientific and clinical investigation directed at understanding basic processes of Brain Metastases and translating such insights to clinical care.

15 November 2019, Warsaw, Poland
The “Neuropathology. Neurogenetics 2019” conference will take place at the Mossakowski Medical Research Center at the Polish Acadamy of Sciences in Warsaw. There will be a comprehensive presentation of molecular research and the role of neuropathology in the aspect of contemporary diagnosis of nervous system diseases, with particular focus on neoplastic, neurodegenerative and demyelinating processes as well as neuromuscular disorders. Neurogenetics is a dynamically developing field of study that involves researching the molecular basis of pathological processes within the nervous system and isolating genetically determined diseases. The possibilities emerging from the application of more accurate diagnostic tests allow the identification of new, often very rare disease entities, yet at the same time they bring along difficulties with the interpretation of results. The conference is intended for neuropathologists, geneticists, neurologists
and pathologists as well as molecular biologists, psychiatrists and pediatricians.

3-6 June 2020, Odense, Denmark
The 12th European Congress of Neuropathology is organized by the European Confederation of Neuropathological Societies (Euro-CNS), the Scandinavian Neuropathological Society (SNS), Odense University Hospital and the University of Southern Denmark. The congress will be held at the new Odense Concert, Music and Theatre Hall “ODEON” in Odense, Denmark. The Congress covers all areas of neuropathology and focuses on novel diagnostics approaches including molecular mechanisms explaining pathological and clinical manifestations of neurological diseases. An important issue will be integration of novel molecular technologies into neuropathology. The scientific program includes lectures by top scientists about cutting-edge technologies and workshops focusing on the practical approach in an innovative interactive way. The poster sessions will be integrated into the congress and the setup will facilitate an interactive dynamic social and scientific atmosphere during the breaks. Networking will also be facilitated by an exciting social program. A Euro-CNS pre-congress course on tumors of the central nervous system will take place before the congress.  For all details please visit the congress website.

11-14 June 2020, Monterey, CA, USA
The 96th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Neuropathologists (AANP) takes place at the Hyatt Regency Monterey. More than 400 attendees participate in the Annual Meeting, many of whom are key leaders and department decision makers at universities and health care systems across the US. This year’s meeting includes a one-day Special Course, two days of scientific sessions (platform and poster) in which AANP members present original research, an evening Diagnostic Slide Session, and a half-day Presidential Symposium.

11-15 July 2020, Glasgow, UK
The 12th FENS Forum is hosted in partnership with the British Neuroscience Association (BNA).  It will provide a unique opportunity to meet and discuss the most recent advances in basic and applied neuroscience research.
