Welcome to the 18th Biennial Meeting of WSSFN
The World Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery (WSSFN) has been growing at an unprecedented pace within the past few years reflecting both multitude and diversity.  WSSFN now is a true and vibrant world society operating all over the globe!  After the mutual benefit had been launched, negotiations were started with several continental and regional societies for stereotactic and functional neurosurgery.  Now the seeds have become trees.  In addition to the American (ASSFN) and the European (ESSFN) societies, five other societies have become affiliated with WSSFN – the societies from India (ISSFN), from Japan (JSSFN), from Korea (KSSFN), from the Middle East (MSSFN), and from Latin America (SLANFE).  What was a club of friends a couple of decades ago has become a world wide net for scientific exchange, innovation, mutual support and education.
