25-27 March 2020, The Society of British Neurological Surgeons Spring Meeting; Dundee – POSTPONED


For the latest updates, please visit:

The SBNS Spring meeting will be hosted by our colleagues at Ninewells Hospital and Medical School, 25-27 March 2020. The conference will take place at the Apex City Quay Hotel which is situated on the banks of the River Tay. 

We are also pleased to announce that  the Canadian Neurosurgical Society (CNSS), will be joining us as invited guests.  

The Cerebrospinal Fluid Group (CSF) led by Mr Richard Edwards will also be joining the meeting and will be hosting a sub-specialty group meeting on Tuesday afternoon (24th March) at the conference venue which all delegates are welcome to attend.  The Life Long Learning Session on Wednesday morning will  also be on CSF.  More details will be posted on the sub-specialty tab in due course.     

The Hunterian and Arris & Gale Lectures, which have been awarded to SBNS members Hani Marcus and Aminul Ahmed, will be presented during the meeting: “The Application of Robotics to Keyhole Transcranial Endoscopic Microsurgery” & “Using Stem Cells for Traumatic Brain Injury”.  Both are fascinating topics and should not be missed.  There will also be several eponymous guest lectures,  plenary talks by renowned speakers and Free Paper Sessions (oral and poster) from the abstracts submitted. We also hope to include some breakfast seminars.

As well as an extensive academic programme we also have some wonderful social events planned. The welcome reception on Wednesday will be at the  Discovery Point Museum which centres around Captain Scott of the Antarctic’s Dundee built ship RRS Discovery and the more formal black tie (kilts desirable, but optional!) gala dinner will be held in the newly built Victoria and Albert Museum with its stunning architecture.   For more details please click on the Social Events tab.

An extensive trade exhibition will be held throughout the meeting with neurosurgical companies exhibiting their latest products and innovations.  Several neuro related charities will also have stands in the exhibition so please take the time to pay them a visit and show your support.

Our Hosts look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful City of Dundee and extending a warm Scottish welcome to you all.
