It is our pleasure to announce the 42nd Congress of the Romanian Society of Neurosurgery, which will be held in Cluj Napoca, Romania, 15th-17th of September, 2016. The Congress is held in conjunction with the 21st French Course in Neurosurgery, which will take place on the 14th of September. The venue for the events will be the newly Simulation and Practical Skills Center of the “Iuliu Hatieganu” University of Medicine and Pharmacy, in the heart of the city.

Transylvania’s biggest city is very youth-orientated, holding Romania’s greatest student population, and with its baroque achitecture, bohemian café society and back streets animated with bon viveurs, you can see why. No wonder it has been declared European Youth Capital in 2015 and is on its way to becoming European Culture Capital in 2021.

Cluj is also a hub of academic universities and institutions. We take great pride in our heritage of more than 245 years of continuos medical education. Moreover, in recent years, thanks to multiple international courses, workshops and congresses, we now stand as a landmark city on the South Eastern European Neurosurgical map.

The invited speakers will include the world’s leading experts in the field of neurosurgery, who will contribute to the exchange of new knowledge and skills. The scientific program will include a wide area of subjects, the focus being on CNS Congenital Malformations, Spine Surgery and Gliomas Management.

We are pleased to invite you to take an active part and present your work in this Congress, since our aim in to make its success our profession’s success as well.
We look forward to welcoming you all in Cluj Napoca, 15-17 September, 2016.

Sincerely yours,

poeataWelcome to the 42nd Congress of Romanian Society of Neurosurgery. Our annual Congresses already have a long tradition.

During the years, prestigious speakers from all over the world provided an excellent window towards modern neurosurgery and top departments from developed countries. Now we experience the transition from classical to modern neurosurgery in almost all departments in our country. An important amount of equipments and supplies in the majority of Romanian neurosurgical departments, the training of our neurosurgeons abroad, the unique facilities for documentation in iphone era, the widespread collective and individual membership in european and international connected societies (EANS, CNS, WFNS), the new neurosurgical and life philosophy deeply changed our minds.

In the era of simulation training, the development of subspecialties, the continuously increasing number of neurosurgeons, the ability to properly act facing rare cases is completely different.
Neurosurgery is full of rare cases and the chance to be exposed to them depends on the way each individual experience is shared formally and informally.

Please bring your message in our annual meeting in Cluj, your participative contribution in the exquisite environment provided by experienced organisers of high hospitality and professionalism.

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet national and international experts, to enjoy the great scientific and social spirit of this event.

See you in Cluj,

President of the Romanian Society,
Prof. Ion Poeata, M.D., Ph. D.
