The Education Committee of the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies and the Southeast Europe Neurosurgical Society share the vision in which mutual dedication, enthusiasm and effort could result in a successful cooperation and course organization. Among the numerous educational activities of the WFNS, the Courses of the Education Committee reflects the WFNS commitment to expand neurosurgery worldwide and in the same time reflects the desire of the local organizers to contribute to the educational activities of the Society and to
demonstrate high level reached in delivering neurosurgical care in their home countries. The Courses of the WFNS Education Committee are indeed well selected educational projects that are limited in number in order to maintain their traditional high level. This Course held in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik represents not only a continuation of WFNS education projects but a mixture of great scientific programme and social networking in a historical background. We welcome all of you to share these three days, which, we are sure, are going the remain in the history of the WFNS. In the same time, we invite you to take full advantage of the high knowledge and expertise matured by the WFNS faculty members.
