Dear colleagues and friends,
The worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 has impacted all of us both professionally and personally. The situation remains difficult and unpredictable, and since the conditions to safely attend the meeting cannot be warranted, after weighing the options, The SNSS Executive Committee has decided to organize the 7th SNSS Annual Meeting online.
It is my honor and pleasure to invite you to the upcoming 7th Annual Meeting of Serbian Neurosurgical Society with international participation – Vita brevis, ars longa: Refining the art of neurosurgery, which will be held on November 24-25, 2021.
This year’s meeting, yet in the online environment, will address more than wished comeback to regular activities within neurosurgery, still in times of pandemic worldwide. As it was previously mentioned, the global theme of the meeting will be Vita brevis, ars longa: Refining the art of neurosurgery in the era of COVID-19. The Serbian Neurosurgical Society is delighted that its 7th Annual Meeting, traditionally organized as a Joint venture with the Southeast Europe Neurosurgical Society, will feature renowned international and national experts, who will provide their insights into the impact of the virus on everyday neurosurgical practice in all fields of neurosurgery, thus returning to our essential work with topics such as Vascular, Neuro-oncology, Spine, Trauma, Functional, Peripheral nerve surgery, Skull base, Pediatric. The special sessions will be dedicated to Global neurosurgery, Women in neurosurgery, and papers of the young neurosurgeons.
We are also marking two important anniversaries: 98 years since the founding of neurosurgery in Serbia and 83 years of the Clinic of Neurosurgery at the Clinical Center of Serbia. I am confident that this event will open new perspectives and result in continuity of sharing knowledge and experience with our colleagues throughout the world.
I hope that we will be united again soon in the real world, meeting each other in person, like we used to, much before the EANS 2022 Congress in Belgrade. Until then, I cordially invite you to join us online in November!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
As Honorary President of the Southeast Europe Neurosurgical Society, it is my great pleasure and honor to announce and invite you to the 7th Annual meeting of the Serbian Neurosurgical Society with international participation “Vita brevis, ars longa: Refining the art of neurosurgery”, joint meeting with the Southeast Europe Neurosurgical Society to be held online on November 24-25, 2021.
Since 2012, when SeENS was established, we are providing around 10 continuous medical education events per year. This meeting represents a continuation of this good practice and the result of the intensive collaboration between neurosurgeons in the Southeast Europe region.
After a year of lockdown where everyone has been focused on COVID-19, it is now time for recovery. The list of the invited speakers at this Joint meeting is impressive and includes the World’s leading experts in the field of neurosurgery. I hope that their valuable insights and discussions will enlighten the pathway of all participants in their return to everyday practice.
It is my great honor to invite you to participate in this Joint meeting.
