Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

The 2016 edition of the « Hershey meeting" will be held at Chateauform ( ; Châteauform de Romainville, 22 rue du 8 mai 45, 95340 Persan, France), an amazing place in the countryside very close to Paris, where we hold the very successful 2008 edition of the Hershey meeting. The meeting, which will host about 120 people including invited speakers, will start on June 8th afternoon and will finish on June 11th around lunch time.

The meeting is dedicated to perinatal brain damage, its mechanisms and neuroprotective strategies. We also invited speakers who are not directly in the filed but who would contribute by offering new approches, new concepts, or new tools from distinct fields to promote an inter-disciplinary cross-fostering. The program can be found on the website of the meeting (

Registration and abstract submission are now open through the website ( Please strictly follow the instructions. The fee is « all inclusive », including registration, hotel room and meals.

Looking forward to receiving your abstracts!

Best wishes,

Pierre Gressens for the organizing committee
