At the meeting of the Council and Executive Committee of the International Society of Neuropathology, held in this September in Salzburg, Austria, it was officially decided that Tokyo will be the host city for the 19th International Congress of Neuropathology in 2018. Tokyo won out over other strong candidates in Europe, including Amsterdam, Dublin and Istanbul, and it will be the first time in 28 years for the event to be hosted in Japan, since the previous congress in 1990 in Kyoto. The congress is scheduled to take place for five days in September 2018, and approximately 1, 000 delegates (including 400 from overseas) are expected to attend.
