On behalf of the International Child Neurology Association, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 16th International Child Neurology Congress being held in San Diego, USA October 19-23rd 2020 in collaboration the Child Neurology Society. Our congress theme is "Sharing Knowledge, Sowing Friendships, Spreading Hope". The ICNCs have truly set the stage as the key forum which provides the very latest and most relevant updates on child neurologic disorders from a global perspective. Speakers from across the six major geographic regions will present at the congress. The scientific program will feature internationally recognized experts including themes of "Developmental and Epileptic Encephalopathies: What we know and what we do not know" (Nicola Specchio / Pritchard award); "Update in Pediatric Neurometabolic Disorders 2020: cerebral folate deficiency and disorders of polyamine metabolism" (Lance Rodan / Linda de Meirleir Neurometabolic award); "Burden of Neurological Conditions in the World's Children" (Charles Newton / Frank Ford Award) and "Dietary therapies for epilepsy in low resource settings: Challenges and successes" (Suvasini Sharma/ Shiela Wallace Award).
We are keen to hear from members of the ICNA and CNS community and encourage you to submit your proposals for symposium sessions, platform and poster presentations. Following the successful framework of previous congresses the globally representative scientific committee, chaired by Prof Jonathan Mink, will select the most innovative proposals to ensure a rich and diverse program which guarantees that all delegates will leave inspired and with knowledge gained.
There will be opportunity for the newly established Council of the Future Leaders of ICNA comprised of outstanding, regionally nominated senior child neurology residents, fellows and junior faculty to meet and discuss strategy, as well as how the ICNA can support junior child neurologists. In-line with previous congresses we will offer a number of bursaries for attendees from low and low middle income countries. Based on popular demand there will be a strong educational program inclusive of master classes and teaching courses. There will also be an opportunity for the meeting of different child neurology subspecialty special interest groups.
The networking opportunities building international collaborations is a key theme for the ICNA and the 2020ICNC-CNS congress will be an ideal opportunity to pursue this. The congress promotes connecting clinicians involved in the phenotyping of unique clinical populations afflicted with specific neurological diseases with researchers in state-of- the-art research laboratories.
Please join us for a scientifically stimulating ICNC2020 program in an atmosphere of warm collegiality at the beautiful coastal destination of San Diego, complete with access to stunning beaches, hikes along sandstone cliffs of the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and exploring the cultural hub at Balboa Park with its many museums, theatres and gardens.
We look forward to meeting new colleagues and engaging with old friends there.

The ICNMD is organized on behalf of the Applied Research Group on Neuromuscular Diseases of the World Federation of Neurology. Since 2014, the Congress has taken place in two-year cycles. This will be the 15th International Congress, following upon previous meetings in Nice (2014) and Toronto (2016). Future ICNMD meetings are expected to change continually between the continents.
The aim of the Congress is to present a wide spectrum of neuromuscular diseases from the perspectives of advances in research, diagnosis and treatment. The main scientific topics will cover:
*Peripheral nerves / Neuropathies
*Neuromuscular junction disorders
*General diseases and neuromuscular disorders
*Cancer and the peripheral nervous system
*Patient related topics
*Neuromuscular disorders worldwide
The format will follow the previous successful ICNMD meetings and consist of scientific sessions including plenary lectures and scientific teaching courses, workshop and poster presentations. The Congress will also offer Virtual Conferences and of course there will also be time for attendees to interact and exchange knowledge and ideas with their esteemed colleagues.
The expected aim of the Congress is that the attendees will gain an updated view on neuromuscular disorders and that the networking opportunities will increase their international experience and collaborations. The scientific and program committee have been invited from all continents around the world to enable this wide spectrum.

The EPNS has been organising training courses in paediatric neurology since 2003 specifically aiming at trainees but also at qualified paediatric neurologists who want to refresh their knowledge on certain topics. The aim is to cover most main topics in the syllabus over a three-year cycle and to promote contact between individuals in the speciality in different parts of Europe. The course has a highly interactive character and participants are encouraged to bring (difficult) cases to discuss. The number of participants is limited and applicants who wish to attend both courses will be given priority over those who wish to attend one of the two courses. The cycle of training courses 2015-2017 took place in Budapest, Hungary.
We are excited to announce that the next cycle of training courses 2018-2020 will take place in beautiful Alicante, Spain.

It gives me the greatest pleasure to invite you to join us at the next International Congress on Neuromuscular Diseases to be held in Toronto from July 5-9, 2016. We are very excited to be hosting this important conference in Toronto as the Congress has been located in Europe for its meetings excepting the inaugural meeting in Vancouver in 2002. We hope to follow in the successful footsteps of the meetings in Vancouver, Istanbul, Naples and Nice. At the meeting in Nice in 2014, it was decided that the Congress would move to a two-year cycle instead of meeting every four years. At that meeting, Toronto won the bid to host the next International Congress in 2016
We have developed robust committees: International, program and local organizing, that are populated by outstanding neuromuscular physicians. The program committee is planning a fabulous program ranging across the spectrum of neuromuscular disorders. We will have sessions on muscular dystrophies, other myopathies, myasthenia gravis, polyneuropathies, spinal cord disorders, and neurofibromatosis to name some of the major themes within the Congress. We will have updates on our understanding of the genetics, pathogenesis, evaluation and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. At the end of this Congress, we hope that attendees feel that they have garnered the most up-to-date information available in neuromuscular disorders.
The members of the local organizing committee are very proud to be hosting the ICNMD2016 and look forward to welcoming you to our city and country. Toronto and its environs are an amazing place to visit. Our multicultural city has many diverse neighborhoods of interest to visitors. Short distances away are wonderful attractions such as Niagara Falls. We also have easy access to the North Country for those who are interested in visiting the Canadian wilderness. The meeting promises to be highly rewarding on a social basis as well as on an intellectual basis.
Please mark in your calendars the dates of the ICNMD2016, July 5 - 9, 2016, so that you may join your colleagues in what we hope will be a fantastic meeting.

Bridging worlds: child neurology from a global perspective
A Dutch View: 14th International Child Neurology Congress,
May 1-5, 2016
It is with great pleasure that we invite the world’s pediatric neurologists, trainees, nurses, technicians, dieticians, speech therapists, physical therapists, and other (paramedic) specialists to attend the 14th International Child Neurology Congress from May 1-5, 2016 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
As local organizing committee, we represent the Dutch Society of Pediatric Neurology (NVKN). The organization of this congress is strongly supported by its members. Since its foundation in 1975, our society has continuously been active and has flourished. With a primary background in either adult neurology or pediatrics, Dutch pediatric neurologists are united in one society and form a well-trained and skilled group of colleagues. Our society aims to maintain the highest national standard for the care of all pediatric patients with neurological disorders, in close collaboration with our colleagues in neurology, pediatrics, genetics and rehabilitative medicine, among others.
In addition, the society aims to facilitate national and international pediatric neurology research. Furthermore, training in child neurology is considered of major importance. Dutch pediatric neurologists have been traditionally active in ICNA: Jacobus Willemse is one of the founding fathers of the ICNA, Ritske Le Coultre was the third ICNA president 1975-1979 and recently Michel Willemsen was elected as ICNA board member.
Please mark your calendar!
We look forward to welcoming you all in the beautiful city of Amsterdam for the 14th ICNC from May 1 – 5th 2016.
