On behalf of Turkish Neurosurgical Society I would like to cordially invite you to the XVI. WFNS World Congress of Neurosurgery to be held on August 20-25, 2017 in Istanbul, Turkey.
“If the whole world were one country, Istanbul would be its capital” Napoleon Bonaparte once said. Istanbul, once known as Constantinople and Byzantium before that, is a bridge connecting two worlds; the East and the West. The city hosts astonishing accumulation of cultures, religions, beliefs, races and languages. With its history dating back to ancient times, Istanbul has managed to blend the traditional and the modern in the attractive multi-cultural mosaic. I personally assure you that every participant will find something interesting together with many other things surprising and delightful.
It is a great pleasure and honor to have the opportunity to organise such a prestigious congress in Istanbul. The convention center which is walking distance to 4-5 star hotels, ready to house more than 6000 guests, is built in the heart of the city. This unique location of the venue promises all participants a taste of Istanbul just a few steps away.
With the city’s harmonic blend of cultures we aim to make “XVI. WFNS World Congress of Neurosurgery” a great opportunity to gather participants from all around the world. Exceptional location of Istanbul, which allows direct flights from almost every-part of the world as well as the facilities that suit every budget ensure record breaking number of participants. In addition to all the advantages of the host city, to make the congress an exceptional one, our organizing committee has already started working to achieve high level of scientific quality.
I look forward to welcoming you all in Istanbul, August 20-25, 2017.
