We are very excited to welcome you to the 18th International Child Neurology Congress, which will be held in Cape Town, South Africa from May 6-10, 2024! We look forward to partnering with our African colleagues to provide an outstanding scientific program, with a rich diversity of state-of-the-art, child neurology topics with a global focus.
The theme of the 2024 Congress is “Footsteps to the Future”, reflecting both the remarkable progress in our understanding of the pathogenesis and best therapies for many disorders afflicting the child’s nervous system, as well as global collaboration to improve socioeconomic factors that continue to impact growth and development in many children worldwide.
Our program will cater to a range of learning styles, offering both didactic and interactive learning. There will be focus on practical and realistic translation of state of the art and gold standard care into viable capacity to implement at the clinical level. Cutting-edge, plenary lectures will be given by distinguished international experts and ICNA award winners. Challenging controversial topics will be addressed in several planned debates featuring international experts. Outstanding parallel symposia and breakfast seminars will include both more seasoned international experts as well as “rising-star” young investigators addressing a broad range of child neurology topics. Additionally, workshops (with one focusing specifically on research methodology) and interesting regionally representative patient presentations in a grand rounds format will encourage highly-interactive audience participation and encourage contributions from our junior members. Global and regional research advances will be highlighted in platform and interactive poster presentations.
As before there will be opportunities for best junior research awards, as well as bursary support for colleagues from low and middle income settings.
In addition to an outstanding clinical and educational program, ICNC 2024 will be a great opportunity to enhance your professional network and meet new collaborators, to present your own research and to catch up with old friends and make new ones. We look forward to welcoming you to Cape Town for a unique and memorable experience!

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 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.
Professor Francisco Carratala, Spain Twitter: @FranciscoCarrat
The first training courses will be held in Alicante: 8 – 11 May 2018

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.
