The International Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery seeks to promote the health of children throughout the world by encouraging ethical transmission and exchange of scientific information and techniques related to Pediatric Neurosurgery.
The Annual Meetings of the ISPN are integral to the ethos of the Society. These meetings provide a mechanism for the exchange of scientific information for the betterment of our patients, wherever they are in the world.
The intention is that these meetings should also lead to a more rapid evolution of the art of pediatric neurosurgery, through discussion and dissemination of new surgical techniques and a better understanding of the conditions that we treat.
The location of the Annual Meeting is determined by the Executive Board three (3) years in advance. Destinations have been selected up to and including ISPN 2026.
