Welcome Note

Dear Colleagues,

we cordially invite you to participate in the 65th Congress of the DGKN from 10.03. - 12.03.2021 - digital, live and concise.


The congress will be organized as a digital congress at the scheduled date. We would like to continue the positive experiences of the digital DGKN last year, at the same time we try to learn from our experiences.

This time almost all contributions in the scientific program will be held live. The chat will give the audience the opportunity to get in touch directly with the chairs. After each session, we will offer break-out rooms with the chairs, where anyone interested can interact with the presenters but also with other colleagues.

We created a varied and highly interesting program for you. In a total of 39 symposia, which will take place in three parallel life streams, over 130 speakers will present exciting lectures.

The main topics will be EEG and MEG, epilepsies, connectivity and functional imaging as well as intraoperative monitoring.

The application of neurophysiological methods in the intensive care unit will be discussed scientifically, as will the use of non-invasive and invasive brain stimulation techniques.

The application of neurophysiological methods in the intensive care unit will be discussed scientifically, as well the use of non-invasive and invasive brain stimulation techniques.

In the Presidential Symposium on March 11, internationally recognized luminaries in their field -  Philippe Kahane  (on sEEG), Lawrence Hirsch (on long-term monitoring in the ICU) and Peter Wolf (on epilepsy as a systemic disease) - internationally recognized luminaries in their field - will speak.

On the first evening of the congress (10.3.) there will be two keynote lectures, for which we can call on top international experts: Alon Friedmann, Halifax (on the role of the blood-brain barrier in epilepsy) and Jens Dreier, Berlin (on spreading depression).

The Richard Jung College, this year for the first time under the direction of Daniel Zeller, offers exciting opportunities for continuing education in the entire spectrum of clinical neurophysiology in more than 40 courses.

DGKN's mission is to understand the function of the brain and nerves and to treat their diseases. Therapeutic methods based on clinical neurophysiology are steadily gaining in importance.

The DGKN is open to all colleagues with an interest in applied clinical neurophysiology and neurophysiological research in its entire breadth. As a methodological society, it is highly relevant to other professional societies, both for basic research and clinical application. We

aim to fulfill this interdisciplinary role with numerous joint sessions with other related professional societies.

Symposia of the Young Clinical Neurophysiologists as well as of colleagues recently habilitated in the neurosciences put the focus on young scientists.

Those who miss the social aspect of an attendance congress or simply like to have a personal exchange are cordially invited to a get together organized by the Young Clinical Neurophysiologists.


We are looking forward to a stimulating scientific exchange with you!


Best regards from Frankfurt,



Catrin Mann, MD, Congress Secretary
