Posterior Fossa Society - First Global Meeting

Liverpool, UK

from 09/09/2022 until 11/09/2022

Dear Colleagues and Friends 



This conference will provide a state of the art multidisciplinary update on Cerebellar Mutism Syndrome (CMS), recognised as an often severe adverse effect of cerebellar injury and characterised by mutism after surgery usually associated with emotional liability.  The core manifestations of CMS may be accompanied by a range of neurological and neuropsychological impairments together with an association with the Cerebellar Cognitive Affective disorder.

We promise you an amazing, not to be missed, conference that will be a landmark event in the science and clinical practice of Cerebellar Mutism / Posterior Fossa Syndrome. A number of world-leading speakers will present and we will welcome abstracts for both platform and poster presentation.

We are honoured that the meeting has come to Liverpool; a vibrant city with a rich maritime, art and musical heritage - one of the most visited cities in the United Kingdom. We are very proud of our city as a centre of research and learning with a proven track record of hosting major national and international Congresses.

The venue for the conference is the Hilton Hotel Centre set on a delightful waterfront that has achieved world heritage status. We will offer a memorable networking and social program with the main networking event on the world famous Ferry across the Mersey.  As well as the conference hotel, a full range of hotels can be booked, all of which are within walking distance.


The LOC of the meeting fully appreciate the uncertainties created by the current COVID pandemic. 

It is sincerely hoped, however, that we are well over the worst of the pandemic and that national and international travel will be safe by September 2022 and that social distancing measures will allow us to host the meeting. The organisers will of course continue monitor the situation with respect to COVID-19 extremely carefully and will provide advice and information as appropriate. 

All that said, we very much hope that we will be able to run the event and welcome you to the First Global Meeting of the Posterior Fossa Society in Liverpool.
