33rd Annual Meeting and Refresher Course
We are both happy and proud to welcome you to the world-famous city of Salzburg, which originally prospered under the salt mining Celts between the 5th and 6th century BC. The city has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1997 and has a long history of arts and culture. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the archbishop and prince Markus Sittikus (creator of the trick fountains in Hellbrunn castle) as well as the Von Trapp Family who gave rise to “The Sound of Music” – to name just a few – were all famous locals.
Even if you will be too busy to explore Salzburg (because you will be hooked by the interesting programme that awaits you at ESHNR 2020!), you can not help but fall in love with the city’s picturesque location. Located along both banks of the river Salzach, overlooked by Kapuzinerberg on one side, Festung Hohensalzburg on the other, with Schloss Mirabell right in the middle.
We endeavor to offer you the best of European Head and Neck Radiology, enlivened by guests from overseas and members of the European Society of Neuroradiology. At ESHNR 2020 we aim to give you the opportunity to learn from experienced and established presenters, but also to meet enthusiastic young researchers from all corners of our continent. In addition, we wish to build a lively community with a lot of discussion, personal exchange and interaction while maintaining a good balance between basic education and high-end science. Lastly, we hope to arm you with the means to provide the most professional service to your patients, guidance to your technicians and play a pivotal role in therapeutic decision making.
Looking forward to hosting you in Salzburg!
Your ESHNR 2019 Congress Presidents,
Prof. Soraya Robinson
