Ladies and Gentlemen,
My co-workers and I would like to warmly welcome you to Cologne for the 55th Annual Meeting of the German Society of Neurosurgery.
We are delighted to have a wealth of promising lectures in our program and we would like to extend our gratitude to the numerous renowned speakers – a remarkable number from outside of the medical profession – who followed our invitation and give us the benefit of their knowledge in workshops, lectures, reports, seminar events, plenary sessions, and concluding podium discussion. This expertise will enable us to discuss the main topics of the congress in the context of medical, legal, theological, ethical, demographic and healthcare economic aspects.
I would also like to express a particularly warm welcome to our Hungarian guests with whom we have arranged our first Neurosurgical Joint Meeting on 25th April and which we have thematically adjoined to the Annual Meeting.
The social program has been arranged in such a way that both, congress delegates and accompanying persons, will return home scientifically and socially enriched.
Welcome to Cologne.
Prof. Dr. N. Klug
