Dear colleagues, dear members of the ISIN, dear participants,
it is a great pleasure to announce that the next event in a series of very successful meetings of the society will be held in Vienna. It is an honor to be your host and we are finalizing a fascinating program as well for the Educational Course as for the Scientific Meeting of the ISIN.
Techniques in surgery are under fast development, not only influencing the indications of surgery but also challenging the safety of the surgical interventions. Intraoperative neurophysiology offers an additional safety net for the neurological outcome in neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery and many other fields of surgery. Thus, neurophysiological monitoring has become an essential tool of intraoperative neuroprotection.
The Educational Course will follow the modular structure of the ISIN educational program, that offers a comprehensive didactic concept. This year we will focus on surgery in brainstem areas and surgery on the peripheral nervous system. For surgeons, neurophysiologists, neurologists, anesthesiologists and technicians, as well as for students in medicine and neuroscientists is a unique advantage to learn from a distinguished faculty of experienced neurophysiologists and surgeons about basics and application in high risk surgery.
The Scientific Congress will be a platform for communication for all related medical and scientific fields. It serves a roundtable for interprofessional exchange between scientists, clinicians, technicians and the medical industry. We invite participants from all over the world, to contribute their experiences and to communicate their requests within an interdisciplinary scientific environment.
We invite you to come to a stimulating and vibrant city with lots of historical gems to discover. You may find sources of the rich heritage of the Vienna Medical Faculty in collections, archives and architecture, dating back to the Age of Enlightenment in Austria. Vienna provides a safe harbor for many scientific and international societies to meet and work. As the capital of Austria, it is well connected to all major cities of the world. Music and art serve as the motor that constantly drives the intellectual output of the city. We hope you will be able to enjoy a fruitful convention and explore the touristic highlights in and around this marvelous place in the heart of Europe.
