The Second Annual UAE Epilepsy Congress 2013

Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the scientific committee of the Second Annual UAE Epilepsy Congress, it is my honor and privilege to invite you to participate in the congress which will take place in Abu Dhabi from April 26th to April 27th. This congress is hosted under the umbrella of the Emirates League Against Epilepsy, and endorsed by the Commission of Eastern Mediterranean Affairs (CEMA) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE).

This year the committee has worked hard to build on the success of the first congress and have managed to put together a comprehensive program with participation of renowned international and regional faculty, whom during the two days will present cutting edge topics in clinical epileptology. To add a strong flavor to the program, we are so excited to host our key note speaker for this year’s congress Professor Emilio Perucca, the President-elect of ILAE.

Furthermore, we have combined lectures with debate sessions which will raise the most dynamic and controversial topics facing clinicians in the fields of epileptology in an exciting debate forum that, I trust, will enhance healthcare professional’s knowledge about epilepsy.

I very much hope to see you and your colleagues in Abu Dhabi for what promises to be an exceptional epilepsy congress of outstanding quality.

With warm regards,
Dr. Taoufik Alsaadi
President, UAE Chapter of International League Against Epilepsy
