8TH CONGRESS OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF INTRAOPERATIVE NEUROPHYSIOLOGY AND EDUCATIONAL COURSE
Dear ISIN and general Intraoperative Neurophysiology Community,
 
It is with great pleasure that I ask you to hold the dates of 7 - 12 December 2021 for the 8th Congress and Educational course of the ISIN to be held at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel in Chicago, IL, USA. We hope to add to the incredible event organized by Dr. Klaus Novak in Vienna in 2019 by including special panel sessions related to key topics in the field of IONM, cutting edge lectures on new neurophysiologic methodologies and theory as well as new technologies that we as a field need to start figuring out how to implement in our daily practice. These new technologies will not only help advance the care that we offer our patients, but also challenge our standard ways of thinking about how we implement our daily patient care activities. These lectures will be presented by an international host of experts in the field of IONM as well as experts in areas of neuroscience, computer science, imaging, and surgery. In addition to the standard one-track model used in past ISIN meetings there will be a second track with topics ranging from law and neuromonitoring, to standard techniques and methodologies as practiced today. This meeting will incorporate experts from our sister societies in the United States to present a wider range of views and ideas in order to allow for a more diverse and detailed set of panel discussions.

Chicago is a diverse and inclusive metropolitan city with direct access to over 64 international locations and over 170 US cities. There is a wide abundance of social and gastronomic venues for all tastes and styles. Over the next 18 months we will be sending more detailed information relating to the program, social events, location, and registration. This information, as it becomes available, will be posted on the congress website coming soon. We both look forward to seeing all of you in 2021.

HOW DOES THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AFFECT THE PRACTICE AND DEVELOPMENT OF INTRAOPERATIVE NEUROPHYSIOLOGY?
ISIN sympathizes with all those affected by the impact of the Coronavirus, whether directly or indirectly, and remains committed to providing its educational offers to the best of its efforts. 
Health and safety is our highest priority and decisions regarding continuing our activities will be made following the guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO), CDC, and FDA, European Centre for Disease Prevention, regional/local authorities and peer-reviewed scientific publications. 


We are stating recommendations related to Covid-19 and IONM on our ISIN website. You are invited to send your question about IOM Practice issues in Covid-19 patients; we will try to answer your concerns. Please contact us at info@gcb.nl.
