1-3 March 2017, London, United Kingdom
The 118th Meeting of the British Neuropathological Society will be held at the Royal College of Physicians, in London. Proceedings will commence on the afternoon of Wednesday 1st March with a Symposium entitled: “Small vessel disease” organised by Professor Colin Smith, Edinburgh University. The meeting details can be found in the BNS website, “next meeting” section.

22-24 March 2017, Aachen, Germany
CME Training Course ‘Muscle and Peripheral Nerve Pathology’. This three-day course and workshop will provide practising (neuro)pathologists, clinicians and researchers with up-to-date reviews of the classification and the diagnostic problems in muscle and peripheral nerve pathology. The course consists of alternate lectures and slide sessions. The course language is English. Participants will receive a richly illustrated work manual of the histopathology of the most common muscular disorders. Topics include: general muscle pathology; histochemistry; immunohistochemistry; enzyme histochemistry; muscular dystrophies; mitochondrial myopathies; congenital myopathies; inflammatory myopathies; toxic and metabolic neuropathies; demyelinating neuropathies;hereditary neuropathies; inflammatory neuropathies.

28 March 2017, Vienna, Austria
The SYMPATH Symposium on Targeting Synucleinopathies. This symposium will bring together world-leading experts from Europe and the US to discuss recent progress in developing therapeutic vaccinations targeting Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). The agenda includes pathogenesis, biomarkers and clinical challenges in Parkinson’s.

29 March – 2 April 2017, Vienna, Austria
The 13th International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases and related neurological disorders. Mechanisms, Clinical Strategies, and Promising Treatments of Neurodegenerative Diseases. Abstract submission deadline: September 29, 2016. Early registration deadline: December 14, 2016.

8-11 June 2017, Garden Grove, CA, USA
The Annual meeting of the American Association of Neuropathologists will provide cutting-edge educational sessions led by the nation’s preeminent neuropathologists at their Annual Meeting. The meeting includes a one-day Special Course, which features two “What Every Neuropathologist Needs to Know” sessions, two days of scientific sessions (platform and poster), an evening Diagnostic Slide Session, and a half-day Presidential Symposium.

21-24 June 2017, Erlangen, Germany
101st Annual meeting of the German Society of Pathology in conjunction with the 62th annual meeting of the German Society of Neuropathology and Neuroanatomy (DGNN) that will be held from 22-24 June. The theme is “Pathology and Neuropathology; Innovation and Cooperation”.

29-31 August 2017, London, United Kingdom
The 15th European Neurology Congress will have as a main theme “Harnessing the understanding and advancement in Neurology and Neuroscience”, which covers wide range of critically important sessions. The congress will bring together experts like Neuroscientists, Clinicians, Neurogeneticst, Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Medical practitioners, Care specialists, academic professionals and students from all over the world to share an interest in the genetic pathways underlying neurological disorders, techniques to identify those genetic pathways, and the use of genetics and genomics as tools to develop therapeutics. The aim of the conference is to provide a platform to academicians and practitioners from multiple disciplines to debate and deliberate on social change that is encompassed by innovation and technology.

2-6 September 2017, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
The 29th European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2017) will be held at the Amsterdam RAI. The congress will provide an update on all aspects of diagnostic and molecular pathology. The motto of the congress – Pathology for Patient Care – will highlight the added value of the pathology science and discipline in providing care and improving health outcomes for patients and population. The scientific programme will focus on the central role of pathology and its current clinical applications, translational research, near-future innovations and the longer perspectives of paradigm shifts (integrated ‘omics’ care). ECP 2017 will also provide a unique occasion for updating our knowledge in pathology through up-to-date teaching courses highlighting news and views in diagnostic pathology.

25-27 October 2017, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
The updated Euro-CNS course on Neurodegenerative Diseases with up-to-date reviews of the classification and the diagnostic problems in neurodegenerative diseases, lectures with an emphasis on teaching, and practical (microscope-based) sessions, will be held at the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam. Registration is open.

7-11 July 2018, Berlin, Germany
The 11th FENS Forum of Neuroscience will be held in Berlin from 7-11 July. The FENS Forum is the largest Neuroscience event in Europe.

23-27 September 2018, Tokyo, Japan
XIXth International Congress of Neuropathology, hosted by the Japanese Society of Neuropathology. The link to the congress website will be provided as soon as it becomes available.

3-6 June 2020, Odense, Denmark
12th European Congress of Neuropathology, organized by Euro-CNS in conjunction with the Scandinavian Neuropathological Society (SNS). The congress will focus on molecular mechanisms explaining pathological and clinical manifestations of neurological diseases. An important issue will be the integration of novel molecular technologies into neuropathology. The scientific program will include lectures by top scientists about cutting-edge technologies and workshops focusing on the practical approach in an innovative interactive way. The local organizing committee and the scientific committee will be comprised of members of the Scandinavian Neuropathological Society, supported by an international scientific advisory board. As soon as a congress website becomes available, we will announce it here.
