|The 20th European Congress of Neurosurgery which will take place on 18-22 October 2020 in beautiful Belgrade! The Congress theme – Trends, Insights, Innovations: Neurosurgery beyond Technology – addresses the complex relation between technological advances and human ingenuity in the field of neurosurgery. The age of rapid technological progress, artificial intelligence, machine learning and virtual reality in the 21st century has brought many benefits to neurosurgery, but also many challenges. The top-level Scientific Programme of the EANS2020 Congress, featuring leading experts from Europe and all five continents, is aimed at providing a comprehensive insight into these benefits and challenges and striking the right balance between technology and human (neurosurgeons’) touch. The 20th European Congress of Neurosurgery will also mark an important anniversary of EANS congresses, providing an excellent opportunity to look back and to look forward, and to explore the path for the future. The fact that Belgrade will serve as the host city of the Congress signifies that EANS is acting as an articulation at the crossroads between European and Eurasian countries and their distinct neurosurgical cultures.
