Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of International Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery, it is my great honor and pleasure to invite you to the 43rd Annual Congress of International Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery to be held in İzmir, Turkey, between October 4-8, 2015. We are already excited by the ideas of meeting with our colleagues from all over the world, sharing scientific knowledge, forming new friendships and strengthening existing ones in İzmir, the capital of Ionia from the Ancient Era.

As well as all other annual meetings of ISPN, 43rd ISPN Congress is integral to the ethos of the Society and offering a very satisfying scientific program with the contributions of the world’s renowned scientists specialized in the area of Pediatric Neurosurgery while providing a mechanism for the exchange of scientific information for the betterment of our patients, wherever they are in the world, besides a unique İzmir experience.

The congress will be held in the Büyük Efes Convention Centre within Swissotel Büyük Efes İzmir facilities, located at downtown İzmir. It is in the walking distance to many different category hotels, shopping and leisure sites of İzmir.

İzmir, a perfect combination of history and modernity, is waiting to welcome the participants of 43rd ISPN Congress in 2015 with its past going back to 8.000 years ago and its components belonging to this day. As one of the most unique cities in the world, İzmir represents a harmonical contrast of contemporaneity and tradition, blue and green, stableness and innovation, east and west, city and countryside, etc. and presents a breathtaking choice of sights, smells and tastes that everyone must see at least once in a lifetime. Thus, we believe getting together in such a charming atmosphere with our colleagues is an opportunity nobody should miss.

Hosting this congress in İzmir  will not only help us get advanced in our profession, but also act as a bridge among fellow colleagues.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in İzmir, in the fall of 2015.


Prof. Saffet Mutluer

President of the 43rd ISPN Congress  on behalf of Prof. Yusuf Erşahin
