The 68th Scandinavian Neurosurgical Society congress
18-20 May, 2021

Welcome
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to Bergen, Norway for the 68th Scandinavian Neurosurgical Society congress (SNS). This meeting is a joint meeting for the Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Icelandic and Norwegian societies of Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology and Neuronursing. The meeting is organized by the Scandinavian Neurosurgical Society, the Norwegian Neurosurgical Society, the Norwegian Neuroradiology Society, Mohn Medical Imaging and Visualization Centre and The Norwegian Association of Neuroscience Nurses.

The meeting is set in picturesque Bergen, the capital of the Norwegian west coast. Bergen is surrounded by seven mountains and is a very popular tourist attraction. The congress is set adjunct to the Norwegian National day, May 17th. The National day in Norway is celebrated with everyone dressing up in traditional dresses (bunad), children parades, marching bands and fireworks. A unique feature in Bergen is the city’s many traditional and special «buekorps» – the traditional drummer brigades. Celebrating the National day in Bergen is a truly unique experience. The meeting will be held at the famous concert hall Grieghallen that is located on Edvard Griegs’ square in Bergen and was named in honour of Bergen-borne legendary composer Edvard Grieg. The exhibition area at Grieghallen’s famous foyer will give a feeling of sitting under a starry sky due to the, thousand light bulbs hanging overhead and reflected in the expansive window panes. We estimate approximately 400 – 500 participants to take part in the congress from the Nordic countries, as well as from the rest of the world.

The main theme of the congress is “Risk estimation and Risk management”. Distinguished experts from all over the word will contribute to a varied and high quality scientific program in addition to some of the leading figures from Scandinavia.

The scientific program will be organized as both plenary sessions with exciting topics of interest for all participants, and separate breakout sessions with focus on relevant topics of special interest for Neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and neuronurses.
