Welcome Note

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the German Society for Clinical Neurophysiology and Functional Imaging (DGKN), we are pleased to invite you to the 65th Annual Meeting in Frankfurt, Germany, which will be held March 10th – 12th 2021.
The DGKN Annual Meeting is designed to present and discuss the latest scientific advances in central and peripheral neurophysiology. The Program Committee is pleased to present an impressive selection of sessions for delegates to attend. The scientific program is complemented with a review of the fundamentals and teaching courses within the Richard Jung Kolleg. The 2021 congress will focus on EEG and MEG in epilepsy, telemedicine, connectivity and functional imaging as well as intraoperative monitoring. The use of neurophysiological methods in NICU and non-invasive and invasive brain stimulation will be discussed in interdisciplinary sessions.
The German Society for Clinical Neurophysiology and Functional Imaging has the mission to understand the function of brain and nerves. The DGKN is open for all colleagues with interest in clinical neurophysiology and neurophysiological research. Being a method-centered society the DGKN is highly relevant for various other scientific and clinical societies. Therefore, the program includes Joint Sessions with related societies. Sessions arranged by the “Young Clinical Neurophysiologists” and younger colleagues who recently obtained a Habilitation (the German equivalent for a PhD) will present their scientific work. Speakers with international reputation will contribute to a Joint Session with the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society and other sessions.
The current Covid-19-situation has an immense impact on social and professional live worldwide. As most scientific meetings in 2020 had to be cancelled or had to be organized as virtual conferences, we are happy to welcome national and international colleagues to our congress with in-person attendance. Of course, we are constantly monitoring the current situation and can react to given circumstances at any time.
Frankfurt on the Main, in the heart of Germany, provides the perfect background for an inspiring scientific interchange. The Frankfurt area is home to a number of labs and research institutes of international reputation which are dedicated to clinical and experimental research at the cutting edge of neurosciences, in particular in the areas of neurobiology and brain research, membrane proteomics and study of macromolecules, atomic and heavy ion physics, and the structure of elementary matter.
We look forward to the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with you and our international colleagues.

Sincerely,

Dr. Catrin Mann      Prof. Dr. Felix Rosenow                      
Congress secretary      President elect DGKN
