Welcome Letter

In Hamburg, the word for hello is “moin”

‎Dear Colleagues,

Following Nijmegen in 2017 and Paris in 2021, we are eager to continue the successful tradition of meetings of the European chapters of the International Neuromodulation Society (INS) in Hamburg in 2023. It is therefore a great honour to invite you all to the 3rd Joint Congress of the INS European Chapters (e-INS 2023), which we will create together.

Please mark the days from 31 August to 2 September 2023 in your calendars!

With the global pandemic always at the back of our minds, we fervently hope to meet face to face in one of Germany and Europe’s up-and-coming metropolises. Hamburg, where the River Elbe flows into the North Sea, is Germany’s second-largest city with a population of nearly two million. As a major port, Hamburg offers all the facets of a traditional and modern city. In addition to one of the world’s largest transhipment ports for international maritime transport and the world-famous Reeperbahn, the Speicherstadt district in the port of Hamburg was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015. Another must-see sight is the Elbphilharmonie. This is Hamburg’s internationally renowned concert hall, which opened in 2017 and has since become an unofficial emblem of the city.

e-INS 2023 will be held at Congress Center Hamburg, which reopened in 2022 after extensive renovations and is thus an ideal conference venue.

Abstracts can be submitted from 13 November 2022. We will provide further information in due course. The key topics will cover the entire neuromodulation spectrum and focus on the necessary network structures and future challenges. Together with European and international colleagues, we want to develop an attractive, modern and exciting scientific programme. We look forward to many fruitful discussions in Hamburg.

Kind regards,

Prof. Dirk Rasche, MD, PhD
