to 31 May - 3 June 2021

Dear colleagues

After careful consideration of the rapidly evolving situation with Coronavirus COVID-19, we have made the decision to postpone ECNP 2020 to 31 May - 3 June 2021.

Recognizing the WHO's declaration of the importance of containing the virus to the best of everyone's ability, along with the policy requirements of many health care workers around the world, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Congress. We believe that postponing is the most sensible approach at present.

Speakers and authors will be contacted by the EURO-CNS Secretariat.

Those of you who already registered and/or booked accommodation through the Congress Secretariat will be contacted directly. Our sponsors and exhibitors will also be updated.

Further information will be posted on the website within a few days.

In the meantime, if you have any questions and queries please contact:

We very much regret the inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding.

We hope for your continued support and that we may welcome you at the Congress from 31 May - 3 June 2021 in Odense, Denmark.

With kind regards

Bjarne Winther Kristensen
President ECNP 2021


The European Confederation of Neuropathological Societies (EURO-CNS), The Scandinavian Neuropathological Society (SNS), Odense University Hospital and University of Southern Denmark welcome you to the 12th European Congress of Neuropathology, which will be held at the new congress venue ODEON in Odense, Denmark, 3-6 June 2020.

The Congress will cover all areas of neuropathology and focus on novel diagnostic approaches including molecular mechanisms explaining pathological and clinical manifestations of neurological diseases. An important issue will be integration of novel molecular technologies into neuropathology. The scientific program will include lectures by top scientists about cuttingedge technologies and workshops focusing on the practical approach in an innovative interactive way. 

The great potential of integrating the poster sessions into the congress will be fully exploited by poster presentations and a setup facilitating an interactive dynamic social and scientific atmosphere during the breaks.

A pre-congress course on tumors of the central nervous system will take place before the congress.  

Billede Welcome 

The Congress is open to all pathologists, scientists and others working within the field. We hope that the Congress will provide the basis for future organized collaboration.

The venue ODEON is conveniently located right in the center of Odense. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the 12th European Congress of Neuropathology at ODEON in Odense, Denmark.

On behalf of the organizing and scientific committee 


Bjarne Winther Kristensen
President ECNP 2021
