Welcome to the 35th ESVN-ECVN Symposium!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a real pleasure for the Organizing Committee to welcome you all to the 35th ESVN-ECVN Symposium, which will be hosted on the 21st – 23rd September 2023, at the Convention Centre “Terminal 103 – Venice Marittima station cruise port” in the beautiful city of Venice. 

We are excited to welcome you in the unique and spectacular city of Venice, where will be combining scientific knowledge, culture, amazing landscapes, and fantastic opportunities to enjoy an impressive historical and natural environment.

The main topic of the Symposium will be “Neurosurgery”, a theme of increasing interest in our community. The keynote lectures will include presentations from veterinary and human neurosurgeons to provide a comparative view and the most up-to-date research. 

The Residents’ Day will be held at the same place as the main Symposium on Thursday 21st September 2023. The topic will be “Neurosurgery”, and residents and neurophiles will have the opportunity to be introduced to this fascinating part of our profession by Prof. Frank Steffen and Dr. Cristian Falzone. 

In addition the scientific program, our beloved Neurofamily will have the opportunity to enjoy a social program of excellence in the beautiful setting of Venice, among the charming calli and canals, for centuries crossroads and meeting point between different cultures and people from all over the world.

A little anticipation: the Welcome cocktail will take place on boats, allowing us to enjoy incredible views while chatting, drinking, and dancing! And the Gala dinner will be …a surprise! Just have a look to the page of the social programme.

Concerning the Welcome Cocktail, please be aware that, since it is on boats, it is absolutely important that you meet on time at the venue of the Symposium, “Terminal 103 – Venice Marittima station cruise port”. The meeting point is at the seafront dock.

We recommend that you book your accommodation in Venice well in advance, as the tourist presence is always very high.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Venice for the 35th ESVN-ECVN annual Symposium,

The Organizing Committee,

Federica Balducci, Cristian Falzone, Gualtiero Gandini
