President’s Message Dear Colleagues, Hydrocephalus 2013 Athens, the fifth meeting of the International Society of Hydrocephalus and CSF Disorders (ISHCSF) will take place 29 June – 2 July 2013, at the Athenaeum InterContinental Athens Hotel, on the mainland of Greece. On behalf of the Hellenic Neurosurgical Society, the Department of Neurosurgery at Virginia Commonwealth University and ISHCSF, we warmly welcome you to join us. The first pre-historic settlement was constructed in 3000 BC around the hill of Acropolis where the King of Athens, Theseus unified the ten tribes of early Athens into one kingdom. This process of synoikismos – bringing together in one home – is the theme of this year’s conference which colleagues from all around the world with wide-ranging research interests and expertise in the management of hydrocephalus and CSF disorders will come together in one home, Athens. We will focus on both adult and pediatric hydrocephalus through our attendees, presenters and international faculty. The meeting will present the latest advances in the basic, clinical and translational sciences as they evolve toward a more complete understanding of hydrocephalus and CSF disorders with the overall goal of promoting the best possible care for patients. In addition, we will provide unique opportunities to future leaders of the field, who are the young investigators. Athens. Modern Greek Athínai, Ancient Greek Athēnai is the historic city and capital of Greece where the city’s values acquired a universal significance starting from the “Golden Age of Pericles”. The Acropolis of Athens (5th c. B.C), the ancient citadel of the city is surrounded by sacred temples and ancient theatres which are the glories of Classical Greece. At the foot of the Acropolis, you will be welcomed by the restored neoclassical homes, pedestrianized streets, shops and restaurants where delicious Greek cuisine which was founded on the Mediterranean flavors of olive oil and fish is served. If you want to relax by the tranquil turquoise waters, then the magnificent Crete and the Aegean Islands will be your next destination. We look forward to seeing you in Athens.

Best Regards, Gunes Ayse Aygok Congress President The 2013 Meeting of the International Society of Hydrocephalus and CSF Disorders

E-POSTERS GUIDELINES During the Hydrocephalus 2013 Athens ‘‘The Fifth Meeting of the International Society of Hydrocephalus and CSF Disorders� the concept of e-posters will be used.

What is an e-poster? E-posters are the electronic version of traditional, printed posters, except that they are now viewable on screen. This new, environmentally-friendly way of presenting posters replaces the traditional printed poster which is a time-consuming, experience and totally impractical method. The entire process of creating, submitting, managing and presenting posters online will be fully automated from here on in, and posters can be viewed in digital format using the innovativeePostersLive platform, without the need to print them out, transport them and then display them at a specific conference venue.

Where and when will the e-posters be presented? There will be desktop computers in an especially laid-out part of the conference venue where delegates will be able to access any e-poster of their choice at any time as often as they want. At the same time, large 55 inch, high definition and high resolution screens will also be installed in the same part of the conference venue instead of the traditional boards used to display printed posters. These will be used to screen e-posters on a rotating schedule. The e-posters will also be available via the internet on the website www.hydrocephalus2013.com.

How can one create an e-poster? E-posters can be created using PosterGenius software. This is a globally acclaimed software application that allows someone to create impressive, professional-looking posters in just a short time. Authors are encouraged to use the specific method to create highly attractive posters, which will also enable them to benefit from the fully automated submission and online management tools.

How and when can someone submit an e-poster? Once a paper has been approved by the scientific committee as an e-poster, the author will receive an email with a specific approval code and he/she should then create the e-poster. Posters should be submitted online. Having used PosterGenius to create the e-poster, the author should then key in his/her approval code and by simply clicking a button the poster will be automatically mailed. Once the poster submission process is completed, the author will receive a confirmation message that the poster was received. If an e-poster is created in another way, using Microsoft PowerPoint for example or some similar application, the author should send the poster in electronic format as a .pdf attachment to info@scigentech.com. If interested parties have any queries about e-posters, they can send an email to the address: info@scigentech.com. 11
