Welcome to Oberhofen

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the first expert meeting on intracranial hypotension.
We were overwhelmed by all your positive responses to our invitation. Not only were all our invitations accepted so that now we can all meet here in Switzerland, we also received tips and recommendations about other potential participants and additional experts on this topic.
So, obviously, there is not only a genuine need for an interdisciplinary exchange, but also the will to gather and share experience about spontaneous intracranial hypotension, open questions and future perspectives.
Knowing the Parkhotel Oberhofen from previous meetings, we chose this calm location to create a fruitful environment for our discussions.
We refrained from advertising or sending out any calls to attend this meeting to ensure effective conversations and the closest possible collaboration.
To us, an important aspect of our program is the extensive time allowed for discussion and intellectual exchange, which we hope to continue in the evenings. We believe this should be the key feature of our meeting.
We wish to thank our sponsors for their generous support.
Finally, we would like to reiterate our welcome to Oberhofen and look forward to our meeting, to our getting to know each other and to many interesting discussions.
