Welcome to Prague
Dear friends and colleagues,
Welcome to the 15th Congress of the European Paediatric Neurology Society (EPNS) which will take place 20-24 June 2023 in the Congress Center Prague.
The main theme of the congress is “From genome and connectome to cure”. We invite you to investigate how the latest trends in understanding pathophysiology of neurological diseases are being implemented in the clinical practice. Our field has traditionally focused on precise diagnostics; however, curative treatments remained unavailable for a long time. This trend has been changing rapidly and novel therapeutic options in our field have brought hope to even such families whose children need to cope with the most severe neurological conditions.
Since the time of the Emperor Charles IV. who founded our world-renowned Charles University in 1348, Prague has been the place of lively intellectual debates. Once again, the debate sessions of the EPNS Congress will provide opportunities to discuss current controversial issues related to novel and established treatments of stroke, epileptic encephalopathies or post-COVID syndrome with the leading paediatric neurologists.
While atypical movements and loss of coordination in adults may be a benign result of a lively evening spent in the company of friends, the atypical gait in children is usually of a different aetiology. To learn more about differential diagnosis and treatment of common and rare symptoms in paediatric neurology, please join us for teaching courses led by world-renowned experts in their fields.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Prague in June 2023!
Professor Pavel Kršek, MD, PhD
EPNS Congress Chair
