The 17th Meeting of the ESNCH took place in Venice, Italy, from May 17th to 20th 2012 and was organized by Chairman Claudio Baracchini and Co-Chairman Giorgio Meneghetti from the Department of Neuroscience of the University of Padua. Venice was once again the center of the neurosonological world, after the 4th ESNCH meeting impeccably organized by our beloved Elietta Zanette in 1999.
Twenty exhibitors/sponsors and more than 450 participants from 40 countries contributed to the success of this conference with their scientific work: 97 poster presentations, 43 invited lectures, 36 oral presentations. All participants in addition to attending the conference were also enchanted by this wonderful city that gives you the feeling of being within a painting. We would like to congratulate the 4 winners of the poster prizes, the 10 colleagues who passed the Examination for the International Certification in Neurosonology and all of you for making this event very successful and unforgettable.
