Due to the current situation with the outbreak of COVID-19 we cannot see that it will be possible to hold the NNPS conference as planned in May this year as planned. Instead, we all need to focus on providing the best possible health care for our patients and families in these difficult times.
As we anticipate many conferences to be postponed to the second half of 2020 we have decided to set a new date for the 38th NNPS conference to tentatively March 2021. The new dates for the conference and training course will be announced as soon as possible.
The Nordic Neuropaediatric Society
Stockholm May 27-28 2020
This is the second announcement for the 38th meeting of the Nordic Neuropaediatric Society in Stockholm, Sweden. The meeting will be held in adjunct to the research meeting of the European Society of Paediatric Neurology thus creating a full week of neurology from both a clinical and a research perspective. Both meeting and course programs are now set and online registration will open via the webpage on jan 27th.
Abstract submission is open and has been extended to February 29th.
38th meeting of the Nordic Neuropaediatric Society in Stockholm, Sweden. The meeting will be held in adjunct to the research meeting of the European Society of Paediatric Neurology thus creating a full week of neurology from both a clinical and a research perspective.
Main meeting 27-28th may
The programme has four main topics: epilepsy, neurometabolic disease, neurovascular disease and neuromuscular disease. It is designed for paediatricians, paediatric neurologists, and trainees interested in paediatric neurology, with emphasis on clinical settings.
Training Course 26th may
The meeting is immediately preceded by NNPS training course, this year
“Cerebral Palsy – State of the art”
Attendance is limited to 25 participants to ensure an interactive course.
EPNS 7th Research Meeting 29-30th may

A course on research in child rehabilitation and good clinical practice in collaboration with the European Academy of Childhood Disability (EACD)
A 5-full days course, practical and immersive, organized as a University of Pisa Summer School by the European Academy of Childhood Disability (EACD), with the support of the IRCCS Fondazione Stella Maris.
Target group of attenders made of maximum 32 clinicians and researchers (aged less than 35 years)) working in the disciplines related to rehabilitation of childhood disabilities with interest in performing research in this field, selected based on CV.
Cost of the course €500 including accommodation, breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks. Bursaries (for €500 fee and up to €300 for travel cost) available
31st Annual meeting of the European Academy of Childhood Disability in Paris (France). The conference will take place at the conference centre of la Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie (City of Sciences and Industry) of La Villette, from May 23rd to 25th May 2019.
The 2nd Neuro-MIG Training School will be held at the Institute of Histology and Embryology at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, on December 14 – 15, 2018.
Members of Neuro-MIG COST Action and worldwide known experts will share their expertise with young colleagues by lectures and work on adult and fetal brain sampling techniques, biobanking of brain tissue, and virtual histology slide analysis of normal and brain malformation cases. Concise literature will be distributed to participants in advance.
Please find the final program as well as detailed information on registration, accomodation and travel attached.
Trainees will be asked to prepare at least one case to be discussed on related topics (antenatal/ postnatal cases along with neuroradiological/molecular/histopathological data). They should also prepare 5 slides to present the challenges they encounter in their daily work life which will also cover their home institute’s challenges. They will present, discuss and be ready to integrate the knowledge that they gained through the course to their presentation.
We are glad to announe you the 1st EPIPED-EEG Course in Bologna (Italy) to be held in March 9-13, 2019.
Child Neurologists, Pediatricians and Neurologists, even when not specialized in epilepsy, have to face new-onset potentially rare, complex or drug-resistant epilepsies. EEG and Video-EEG (VEEG) are always the first diagnostic tools with history acquisition and clinical examination. Analysis of the EEG and VEEG recordings guide both the prescription of other diagnostic investigations (neuroimaging, genetic screening) and the first treatment choices. Follow-up and treatment strategies also highly depend upon EEG and VEEG.
This 3-year cycle on interactive interpretation of EEG and VEEG patterns is developed specifically forchild neurologists, neurophysiologists and pediatricians caring for children with epilepsy.
The 2019 course includes training modules covering different aspects of the electroencephalography in pediatric focal epilepsies.
