We are pleased to invite you to attend the 16th European Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology to be held on 30 August - 2 September, 2017 in Budapest, Hungary.
The Hungarian Society of Clinical Neurophysiology, which was founded in 1957, among the first ones in the world in this field, is the host of the Congress. Our Society’s main ambition is to promote the development of clinical and experimental neurophysiology, to improve and expand scientific knowledge in the field, and to provide high level specialized professional education.
In 2017, the Hungarian Society will have its 60th anniversary and the IFCN will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its foundation. It would be a great pleasure to salute these occasions together with the representatives of our fellow international societies in Hungary.
Theme of the Congress: Clinical neurophysiology: Unlimited potential
The main topics of the congress will be centred around disease entities. The role and use of clinical neurophysiology methods in the diagnosis, treatment and long-term follow up of various diseases will be emphasised. The upcoming European Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology will give an opportunity to worldwide opinion leaders to share with us their results, which may impact on diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of patients.
Interdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity will be kept in the focus of organization and selection of topics. Representatives of medical disciplines which regularly use the methods of clinical neurophysiology (e.g. neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, intensive care and anaesthesiology, orthopaedic surgery, hand surgery, traumatology, ophthalmology, ENT, physiotherapy etc.) will be invited.
Since combined methods using clinical neurophysiology and functional imaging techniques are quickly developing;special attention will be paid to present the most recent achievements of this field.
The evolution of ideas from experimental neurophysiology to clinical practice will be highlighted. Demonstration of novel or special neurophysiological methods, e.g. DBS, MEG, neurobionics, smart IT tools, brain-computer interface, etc. will be encouraged.
Plenary & keynote lectures, symposia, parallel sessions, poster sessions and interactive workshops will be organised to make effective exchange of information. Prizes and awards will be announced at the Congress.
Our Society will spare no effort to organize an outstanding conference and we are convinced that the ECCN 2017 in Budapest will prove to be a successful event for all participants.
See you in Budapest in 2017!

Convenor of ECCN2017 Budapest
