Dear colleagues

Welcome to the joint annual meeting of the Swiss Society of Neurosurgery and the Swiss Society of Maxillo-Facial Surgery on October 26-27, 2007 in Lugano.
We look forward to a mutual exchange of experience in the beautiful surroundings of Ticino. We have selected topics that should prove of interest to members of both specialities: anterior skull base, traumatology, aspects of intensive care, operative approaches, paediatric matters and implant technology.
As presidents of the SSN and the SSMFS we would like to take this opportunity of wishing you an enjoyable and worthwhile stay in Lugano.
