We are happy to welcome you to the 11th Congress of the European Society of Minimally Invasive Neurological Therapy in Nice, France. The goal of the congress is to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions between interventional neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists and scientists. As we approach the beginning of a new decade we consider what the future will bring: innovative therapies, new technologies, and new challenges. As always, the ESMINT Congress will be an opportunity to strengthen our ties with The European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS), The European Stroke Organisation (ESO) and The Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery (SNIS); and renew our commitment to pluri-disciplinary research in the service of the patient. The program will be both stimulating and ambitious, and this ESMINT meeting will be an incubator for new ideas, and a birth-place for new projects. As always, this congress will be a unique opportunity to meet, share and discuss. We represent many different professional backgrounds, countries and cultures. Let us ensure that these differences do not become boundaries that impede the sharing of knowledge as we contribute to the scientific progress of our community in the field of Interventional Neuroradiology and Endovascular Neurosurgery. We are counting on your active participation, your constructive criticism, and your spirited debate to make this congress an exceptional event.
