Upcoming Meetings
10th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias (ICFTD 2016)
Munich, Germany
Aug 31 - Sep 2, 2016

The ICFTD is now well-recognized as the primary venue for the synthesis, exchange and dissemination of research evidence related to FTD, where experts from diverse backgrounds share recent discoveries, insights and opinions. This allows novel hypotheses to be generated, research collaborations to be established, consensuses to be developed, training opportunities to be explored and knowledge to be translated across disciplines. The Caregiver Session provides a unique opportunity for new scientific knowledge to be shared directly with stakeholders (patients, families, caregivers, community organizations and health care policy makers) and, of equal importance, allows these stakeholders a rare opportunity to provide direct feedback to the medical and scientific community. By holding the Caregiver Session concurrently and at the same venue as the scientific conference, the public is able to interact directly with the experts and become engaged in process of knowledge translation.

Due to the high number of requests the abstract submission deadline for the 10th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias (ICFTD) will be extended until April 11, 2016.

We look forward to your individual scientific contribution to the following topics:

• Social cognition and behavior
• Progressive aphasias
• Neuropathology
• Genetics
• CBS, PSP, MND
• Blood and Imaging biomarkers
• Mechanisms of cell death
• Disease modulation
• Treatment (pharmacological/ non-pharmacological)
• Caregiver

All important information can be found on our conference website www.icftd2016.de.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Munich!

Kind regards,
on behalf of the conference organisers Janine Diehl-Schmid and Manuela Neumann,

The Canadian Association of Neurophysiological Monitoring (CANM): 9th Annual Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IOM) Symposium
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Sep 30 - Oct 1, 2016

Last year’s Annual Symposium in Montreal was a stellar event and we hope to continue this tradition as we head to Halifax in 2016. Halifax, the seaside capital of Nova Scotia, is a city rich in history and steeped in maritime tradition. Come and enjoy one of Canada’s most storied cities and experience first-hand some of its legendary east coast charm. The exciting location is reason enough to attend the 2016 CANM Symposium. However, we are also planning a line-up of speakers and events that will challenge your mind and leave you reinvigorated about your professional involvement in intraoperative neurophysiology. Every year IONM professionals from across Canada gather to share knowledge, hold passionate debate and discuss our vision for the future. More recently, we have enjoyed the company of IONM professionals from our neighbour to the south and it has only added to the rich diversity of our meetings. We hope that some of our American friends will join us again this year in Halifax so we can continue to build on our relationship. The 9th Annual CANM Symposium is guaranteed to be a wonderful time and I hope to see everyone in Halifax this fall for CANM’s version of a traditional maritime kitchen party!

Susan Morris, PhD President, CANM

1er Curso Latinoamericano de Monitorización de EEG continuo en los cuidados intensivos
La Habana, Cuba
Nov 14 - 15, 2016

El capítulo cubano de Neurofisiología Clínica (CC-NFC) tiene el gusto de invitarlos a participar en el 1er curso-taller latinoamericano de Monitorización de EEG continuo -EEGc- en Unidades de Cuidados Intensivos (UCI), el cual se realizará los días 14 y 15 de Noviembre del año en curso en La Habana, Cuba.

Coordinadores del Curso

  • Dr Valia Rodríguez, Centro de Neurociencias de Cuba
  • Dr Suzette M LaRoche, Mission Health, Asheville-Carolina del Norte, EUA
Motivación

La monitorización de EEG continuo en los cuidados intesivos es un campo de la monitorización neurofisiológica que ha crecido y expandido significativamente en los últimos 10 años dada su utilidad en la evaluación neurológica del paciente grave. Sin embargo existe gran disparidad en la práctica y uso de esta técnica entre instituciones y los propios profesionales. El nivel de conocimiento y experticidad en la interpretación en tiempo real -o casi real- de los patrones que se encuentran durante la adquisición del EEGc no es sólo limitada sino también desigual entre países y regiones geográficas. Mientras que el número de instituciones en norteamérica (ie: EUA y Canadá) y algunos países europeos que utilizan el video-EEGc con todas sus ventajas actuales (ej: revisión/edición en línea y remota, análisis cuantitativo en línea, gráficos de tendencias, entre otras) han incrementado de forma significativa en los últimos 5 años, la mayoría de las instituciones de salud en América Latina -aún en el nivel terciario de atención- utilizan el EEG de rutina, de corta duración (por lo general menos de 2 hrs) con revisión sólo cualitativa del registro adquirido en UCI.

El escaso número de artículos en revistas indexadas escritos por autores latinoamericanos en los cuales se abordan tópicos relacionados con este tipo de monitorización es una prueba objetiva de ello. Pensamos que entre las razones fundamentales que han contribuido al atraso tecnológico de la región están la falta de consciencia general de la potencialidad de la técnica y el acceso limitado a programas de educación continuada en este tema. Es así que este 1er curso-taller latinoamericano organizado en La Habana para Noviembre próximo es un primer esfuerzo para comenzar a entrenar a los profesionales de nuestra región de forma continuada en esta temática. Las conferencias del curso-taller serán dictadas por expertos del campo, gracias a la colaboración de miembros de la Sociedad Norteamericana de Neurofisiología Clínica (ACNS). Los participantes tendrán además la posibilidad de interactuar con los expertos en presentaciones de casos, discusiones y recesos.

La monitorización de EEG continuo en UCI fue introducida en Cuba en el 2010. Desde entonces hemos ganado experiencia no sólo en el uso de la técnica en si misma sino además en la organización y desarrollo de cursos en esta temática para educar a nuestros neurofisiólogos clínicos, neurólogos y el personal médico de los cuidados intensivos. Hasta la fecha hemos organizado 4 cursos nacionales en la temática realizados entre el 2013 – 2015 en los cuales han participado un total de 200 especialistas. Específicamente en el curso realizado en Noviembre del 2014 contamos con la colaboración de las Dras Suzette Laroche y Sarah Schmitt las cuales son expertas dentro de este campo y pertenecen a la Sociedad Norteamericana de Neurofisiología Clínica. Estos cursos previos nos ponen en posición de enfrentar con éxito la realización de un curso más ambicioso dirigido a toda la región. Es así que el curso-taller del próximo mes de Noviembre será organizado en dos días a tiempo completo. Los temas se presentarán a modo de conferencias y serán reforzados durante sesiones prácticas (presentaciones de casos & discusiones). Estamos convencidos que el éxito de este curso-taller -y de cursos sucesivos- influirá en el nivel y calidad de la atención médica dentro de la region.

 Dirigido a:

  • especialistas y residentes de neurología, pediatría, neonatología, neurofisiología clínica, cuidados intensivos/emergentes;
  • técnicos en neurofisiología clínica y enfermeras intensivistas.

European Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to attend the European Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology to be held on 30 August - 2 September, 2017 in Budapest, Hungary.

The Hungarian Society of Clinical Neurophysiology is the host of the Congress.
HSCN was founded in 1957, among the first ones in the world in this field. Our Society’s main ambition is to promote the development of clinical and experimental neurophysiology, to improve and expand scientific knowledge in the field, and to provide high level specialized professional education to its members.

In 2017, the Hungarian Society will have its 60th anniversary and the IFCN will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its foundation. It would be a great pleasure to salute these occasions together with the representatives of our fellow international societies in Hungary.

Theme of the Congress: Clinical neurophysiology: Unrestrained potentials

Our Society will spare no effort to organize an outstanding conference and we are convinced that the ECCN 2017 in Budapest will prove to be a successful event for all participants.

See you in Budapest in 2017!

Prof. Dr. Anita Kamondi
HSCN President
