Virtual + Putteridge Bury, Luton, LU2 8LE

Following the success of the 2nd Neonatal Neurology Conference in 2018, the 3rd edition of this conference will be held in September 2021 (rescheduled from June 2020). Experts from the US, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, Iceland, Sweden, Ireland and the UK will present the latest advances in neonatal encephalopathy and therapeutic hypothermia, neonatal seizures, neonatal imaging, and other topics related to neonatal neurology.

The conference includes interactive sessions and discussions on neonatal hot-topics. Luton NeoCon strives to encourage and promote neonatal academia; we are currently accepting poster submissions for our virtual poster gallery and for oral presentation. We are looking forward to meeting delegates who have registered for the in-person option on Day 3 (9th September).
