Date: October 13-15
Location: Delta Bessborough, Saskatoon SK
October 13 & 14 – Scientific & Clinical Abstract Presentations (0900-1500 CDT)
October 15 – Symposium on Multiple Sclerosis and immune-mediated demyelinating disease of the CNS (0900-1400 CDT)
Earlybird Pricing Ends Sept 1.
Call for Abstracts
Thank to everyone who submitted, the deadline to submit was extended to August 8th. Submissions are now closed.
The Abstract Review committee will be reviewing all submissions and we will be in touch.
Preliminary Goals & Objectives
Scientific Abstract Presentations
Review of current clinical and basic science research pertaining to neuropathology with a focus on Canadian centres, but overall international participation. Also a platform for Canadian residents and trainees to present their recent work.
Diagnostic Case Presentations
Interactive discussion of rare and challenging neuropathological cases encountered by participants in their recent practice. Electronic slides and imaging results are distributed prior to meeting. Often includes case presentation by residents and illustrates advances in disease classification and diagnostic technique.
Overall learning objectives for the meeting
At the end of the meeting participants will:
- Describe recent developments in several areas of neuropathology with particular emphasis on the neuropathology of immune-mediated demyelinating disease of the CNS and multiple sclerosis.
- Discuss original research and challenging diagnostic cases with colleagues.
- Compare the practice of neuropathology on an individual and departmental level across Canadian centres.
Please note, all times are in CDT.
President’s Welcome Reception will be Wednesday, October 12th from 1900-2100 at the hotel.
