Dear Members of the EPNS,
Dear friends and colleagues,
As a result of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, we have grappled with the right decision regarding the 14th EPNS Congress which was due to take place in June 2021. We had to balance several issues including most importantly the safety of all involved in the event, but always at the forefront of our minds was our Congress goal to provide and promote a forum for the exchange of clinical, practical and scientific information, with the exchange of ideas and the opportunity to network with friends and colleagues from around the world.
We have taken the difficult decision to postpone the 14th EPNS Congress in Glasgow until 28 April until 2 May 2022. We have consulted with the national host society, the British Paediatric Neurology Association (BPNA) who support postponement until 2022.
We will continue to work hard to ensure that the 2022 EPNS Congress offers you the outstanding experience that you have come to expect. The 2022 EPNS Congress aims to be a ‘hybrid’ event combining both a physical meeting in Glasgow with virtual attendance also possible. The situation will continue to be closely monitored, and we will follow both governmental and scientific guidance. Over the forthcoming weeks and months we will update you with further information about the arrangements, and please feel free to check out the Congress website https://epns-congress.com
We very much hope to welcome you to the vibrant city of Glasgow -- just a little later than we had originally planned -- for what we expect will be one of our best EPNS congresses ever!
We hope you, your loved ones and the communities you serve remain safe and healthy, and that we all emerge stronger and more energised at the end of the pandemic.
On behalf of the EPNS Board and EPNS Congress 2022 Organising Team
