16th World Congress of WFNS

(20/8/2017 - 25/8/2017) / Istanbul Convention Center, Istanbul, Turkey


Dear colleagues,

I would like to cordially invite you to the WFNS XVI. World Congress of Neurosurgery to be held August 20-25, 2017 in Istanbul, Turkey.

“If the whole world were one country, Istanbul would be its capital” Napoleon Bonaparte once said. Istanbul, once known as Constantinople and Byzantium before that, is a bridge connecting two worlds; the East and the West. The city hosts astonishing accumulation of cultures, religions, beliefs, races and languages. With its history dating back to ancient times, Istanbul has managed to blend the traditional and the modern in the attractive multi-cultural mosaic. I personally assure that you will find something interesting and delightful to your own personal taste. 

It is a great pleasure and honor to have the opportunity to organize such a prestigious congress in Istanbul. The Istanbul Congress Center, which is within walking distance to 4-5 star hotels, is built in the heart of the city and it is ready to house more than 10.000 guests. This unique location of the venue promises all participants a taste of Istanbul just a few steps away.

Resembling the city’s harmonic blend of cultures we aim to make “WFNS XVI. World Congress of Neurosurgery” a great opportunity to gather neurosurgeons from all around the world. Exceptional location of Istanbul, which allows direct flights from almost every-part of the world as well as the facilities that suit every budget, certainly helps to accomplish this mission. In addition to all the advantages of the host city, to make the congress an exceptional one, the officers of WFNS 2017 are fully committed to achieving high level of scientific quality.

I look forward to welcoming you all in Istanbul, August 20-25, 2017.
