The local organizing committee, together with the EPNS scientific committee will offer you the best of the best at this meeting. The program topics are all clinically relevant for the practicing paediatric neurologist, and at the same time the newest neuro-scientific methods for diagnosis and treatment will be focused on. For the first time, there will be a main session on the «Future of Paediatric Neurology», where we will predict what will become important for paediatric neurologists in the next years to come. Also for the first time, the EPNS organizes the «Academy of Paediatric Neurology». The Academy will give an scientific and clinical update on one specific topic in paediatric neurology and will allow the sometimes overspecialized paediatric neurologist to be kept informed about one topic outside his daily scope. This time, the theme is childhood stroke.
