WFNS Newsletter Cover Letter

Dear Colleagues –

The last WFNS Newsletter was in April 2022. Fortunately, the reorganization of the WFNS Central Office is well underway – allowing the bimonthly Newsletter to resume for 2023.

It is appropriate that the first two items in the Newsletter are from Peter Nakaji, WFNS Web and Publications Chair:

  1. A note about the new WFNS website,
  2. An announcement of the search for an Editor-in-Chief for the new WFNS Journal

Given how many months it has been since the April 2022 Newsletter, the next items are reports of WFNS-sponsored conferences – several of them reports of continental society conferences:

  1. 2022-4: AANS Annual Scientific Meeting, Philadelphia, PA, USA
  2. 2022-9: AASNS Congress, Jerusalem, Israel
  3. 2022-10: EANS Congress, Belgrade, Serbia
  4. 2022-12: Neurosurgery Bootcamp, DaNang, Vietnam
  5. 2022-12: Military Neurosurgery & Serbian Neurosurgical Society Annual Meeting, Belgrade, Serbia

Announcements regarding upcoming major conferences include:

  1. 2023-3-9 to 12: First WFNS Global Neurosurgery Conference, Peshawar, Pakistan. Note: Abstract deadline is January 31.
  2. 2023-3-10 to 12: International Conference on Complications in Neurosurgery, Mumbai, India
  3. 2023-3-13 to 15: VIII Annual Winter Meeting, Ukrainian Association of Neurosurgeons, Yaremche/Bukovel, Ukraine. Let’s support our Ukrainian colleagues defending their homeland!
  4. 2023-4-5 to 7: International Conference on Recent Advances in Neurotraumatology (ICRAN), San Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.
  5. 2023-12-4 to 8: 18th WFNS World Congress of Neurosurgery, Cape Town, South Africa. Note: dates have changed slightly from the initial announcement.

Our next Newsletter – March 2023 – will include reports on innovative projects for neurosurgeons worldwide in addition to reports on past and upcoming WFNS conferences.

As always, your comments and suggestions will help make the Newsletter more relevant and informative for all neurosurgeons!
