Dear Colleagues,


      On behalf of the Hellenic Neurosurgical Society I am honored to invite you to attend the 32nd Annual Congress of the Hellenic Neurosurgical Society and Joint Meeting with the Society of British Neurological Surgeons and the Cyprus Neurosurgical Society. This promising scientific event gathering scientists from three different European countries, will be held from May 24-26, 2018 in the picturesque Kolymbari bay, 23 Km west of Chania city, Crete.


      The selected venue, Avra Imperial Hotel, guarantees a perfect balance between state of the art conference facilities and high-quality services in the authentic Greek hospitality tradition.


      We envisage a rich, dynamic and thought-provoking scientific program, addressing all aspects of modern neurosurgery and neurosciences. Some of the world leading experts in the field of neurosurgery from Britain, Cyprus and Greece will contribute to the exchange of the knowledge and skills. As always, we plan to dedicate the early morning sessions to our residents and focus on basic anatomy, approaches and training issues.


      In parallel, the 12th Annual Neurosurgery Nurses Meeting will take place, offering the opportunity to share scientific sessions with our daily collaborators.


      All in all, this event provides an ideal opportunity to connect and share knowledge with colleagues and friends, while enhancing your skills set, helping your practice, and improving patient care.


      We look forward to seeing you in Crete.
