International Conference on Diagnosis and Treatment in Pediatric Neurology

 May 14 -17, 2008 - Warsaw






Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As a president of the Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Diagnosis and Treatment in Pediatric Neurology, Warsaw, 14-17th 2008, I am pleased to present you Proceedings of this meeting. Eight hundred participants from Europe and other continents attended the Conference, which was designed to present an update in the diagnosis and management of diseases of the nervous system in children and demonstrate the dramatic progress achieved in our field. Internationally recognized experts had assumed responsibility for the content of the scientific sessions and poster presentations.

We believe that there was no better place for such an event than Poland. Eighteen years ago, Poland initiated the great changes in whole Eastern Europe and led to the collapse of the communist regime. Nowadays, Poland goes through an impressive growth in economy and structure, including most advanced and innovative technologies and research. Warsaw is an extraordinary city, where the history and future are linked so tightly. In Warsaw, influences of Western and Eastern Europe culture cross, creating a vivid and inspiring environment. There was no better place to disseminate knowledge, discuss novel projects and findings, share personal experiences and establish scientific collaboration.

Professor Sergiusz Jozwiak, MD, PhD.
Chairman of the Organizing Committee
President of the
Polish Child Neurology Society
