Keynote lectures & Conferences


Meet our inspiring speakers

Our Conferences are the best opportunity to enter the ever-expanding world of clinical medicine and fundamental science. Imagine great speakers discussing novel ideas and experience the amazement that comes with every discovery!

Some of our conferences will be Keynote Lectures – special talks held by our most prominent guests.


You are welcome to attend any Conference and Keynote Lecture without prior booking!


All conferences will take place on Saturday and will be divided into 2 groups: the morning group and the afternoon group. Please keep in mind that in order to receive your Certificate of Participation, you must attend at least two events (this includes Conferences, Keynote Lectures and Presentations), one in the morning group and one in the afternoon group. In other words, on Saturday, you can go to any Conference, Keynote Lecture or Presentation session you prefer, as long as one is in the morning and the other one in the afternoon.

Keynote Lecture


Augmented reality in Neurosurgery

Augmented Reality (AR) has the potential to change surgical procedures. This technology, which can overlay “reality” with digital information, has been broadly implemented in cranial neurosurgery since the mid-’90s. The AR integrated in surgical microscopes has become more and more sophisticated over the years, with better 3-dimensional object representation, improved immersive display and by integrating various kinds of preoperative imaging data.

Dr Christopher Nimsky – Professor & Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Marburg, Germany – has a special interest in medical technologies in neurosurgery. His MEDICS talk will explore the most recent clinical applications of AR for various cranial and spinal procedures.
