Thank you for your interest in the 20th International Congress of Neuropathology!
The congress will have a hybrid format. This means the ICN 2023 will be held at the congress venue, presentations will be given in-person and almost all presentations will be livestreamed to the digital congress platform. Participants can choose whether they want to participate in-person or online.
Please note that there are parts of the program that will not be streamed via the platform (e. g. Education Day, EVEREST Pre-Congress Symposium, social program, ePoster sessions) and that the congress will take place live in Berlin - therefore according to the Central European Summer Time (CEST). Once you have decided in which form you want to participate, you can register here.
Below you will find some important information and FAQs on digital participation!
