The Swedish Neurological Society is honoured to invite you to the 16th Congress of the European Federation of Neurological Societies that will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, September 8-11, 2012.
The capital city Stockholm is considered to be of great beauty, safe, well kept and clean. Stockholm is built on islands, and the surrounding water is known to be so clean that one can swim in the city centre. The landscape of Stockholm is the unique and vast archipelago of 24.000 islands, offering memorable excursions to all visitors.
There is much to do and see in Stockholm – all close at hand. The city is of major historical interest with a well-preserved medieval city centre, the Old Town, founded more than 750 years ago, royal palaces and monumental buildings. Stockholm presents an abundance of culture, world-class attractions and museums. The restaurants will cater for all tastes from traditional Swedish cooking to Michelin star luxury.
Sweden has a long-standing tradition in neuroscience. In the world of medical science, Stockholm is associated with the Nobel Prize awards in December each year. We plan to arrange a reception in the City Hall of Stockholm, the site of the annual Nobel Prize Award festivities.
Stockholm is rapidly advancing as one of the world´s most popular cities for conferences and meetings, not least due to its highly developed infrastructure with excellent transport facilities. The venue of the Congress will be Stockholm International Fairs and Congress Center, conveniently located approximately 10 minutes by frequent public transportation from the city centre.
On behalf of the Swedish Neurological Society it is a pleasure to welcome all participants of the 16th Congress of the European Federation of Neurological Societies, which we hope will be a scientifically and socially rewarding, memorable and enjoyable experience. Welcome to Stockholm!
