The 11th International Symposium

of the Society for Research on the Cerebellum and Ataxias

"From J.E. Purkynë to the future"


June 18 - 19, 2021

On-line Meeting


President:  Dr. Jan Cendelin, M.D. Ph.D.

Dear colleagues,



In 2020 we had to postpone the physical SRCA Symposium scheduled  in Pilsen, Cech Republic due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Today, the pandemic situation is different in every country but in general we are going in the right direction. But not quickly enough to organise the 2021 edition of the SRCA Symposium in a physical way.  In practice, this means that the 11th edition of the International Symposium of the Society for Research on the Cerebellum and Ataxias on the 18 and 19 June 2021 will be a complete Virtual Meeting.


The virtual symposium will run over 2 days and consist of live presentations followed by live discussions, including the F. Rossi Lecture.  These will be joined by pre-recorded oral contributions that will be available on the website.  To upgrade the poster section, we will introduce the poster-on-demand sessions. That way all posters will be available before, during and after the symposium and will be full presentations.


In the weeks following your registration you will receive a direct link to the SRCA Virtual Congress Venue. This link will allow you to enter the meeting room and see and play the pre-recorded lectures that will be part of the General Discussion session each day.




The symposium president and the SRCA president are looking forward to welcome you on the first Virtual SRCA Symposium




We hope you can join us.


Kind regards,




Dr. Jan Cendelin , 2021  Symposium President

Prof. Jean Mariani,  President SRCA
