Welcome to Bern

Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we hereby invite you to the joint annual meeting of the Swiss Society of Neuroradiology SSNR and the Swiss Society for Behavioural Neurology SSBN, under the participation oft he Swiss Federation of Clinical Neuro-Societies SFCNS. The meeting will be held at the Paul Klee Zentrum in Bern, the modern conference center around culture in the City of Bern.

The Thursday program is dedicated to the annual meeting with posterflashes and the general assemblies of the societies. The scientific part is entitled “Coma and awareness”, which of course is of major interest for Neuroradiology and Behavioural Neurology but also for many other specialities  of clinical neuroscience as well. The presentations will cover topics like definition of coma and diagnosis of different stages of awareness, specific methodologies of imaging, functional imaging, neurophysiological evaluation of perception in recovery, therapeutical interventions and neuropharmacological options.

On Friday the yearly education course of the Swiss Society of Neuroradiology SSNR will take place. The educational topic will be devoted to trauma, epilepsy, neuro-vascular emergency and spinal emergency.
At the same time on friday there will be an Neuro-MTRA education course.

The scientific committee has spared no effort to invite excellent speakers and to prepare an attractive program.  We hope that our meeting will inspire a lot of fruitful discussion, cause scientific and social contacts as well and will deepen the relationship between colleages of different specialities of neuroscience.

We are looking forward to welcoming all of you in Bern in October 2011.

For the scientific committee
