ENS 2011: Lisbon, Portugal · 28 – 31 May 2011


Dear Colleagues and ENS Members,

It is an honour and a privilege to invite you to the 21st Meeting of the European Neurological Society in Lisbon. It is the first time that the ENS meets in Portugal. Lisbon was a natural choice not only because of the facilities available for international meetings, but also because of its charm, its unique light, its multicultural ambiance and its splendid geographical location, surrounded by the River Tagus, the Atlantic Ocean and the Cascais-Sintra Natural Park.

The ENS Meeting offers an exclusive opportunity for excellent continuous education in all fields of neurology, both for practising neurologists and for young neurologists in training.

The ENS meeting is also an international stage where those devoted to clinical or translational research can present and discuss the results of their work in an open, friendly but testing environment.

Lisbon and its surroundings offer the participants of the 21st ENS Meeting a vast display of activities to enjoy pre- and post-meeting hours or days. Whether walking in the narrow streets of Alfama, relaxing on an esplanade by the river, dining out on delicious traditional fare or on Portuguese new-style cuisine, or exploring the vibrant night-life of Lisbon, participants will enjoy the city’s warmth and atmosphere and imbibe its history and culture.

We thank the Administrative ENS Office at Congrex Switzerland for making all necessary preparations for this meeting, to ensure this is a special and memorable event for all participants.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 21st ENS Meeting, it is a pleasure to welcome you to Lisbon in May 2011.

Prof. José M Ferro
Chairperson of the 21st ENS Meeting
