The Fourth Annual UAE Epilepsy Congress 2015

Dear Friends & Colleagues,


On behalf of the scientific committee of the Fourth Annual Emirati League Against Epilepsy (ELAE) Congress, it is with great honor I invite you to participate in this congress which will take place in Dubai from May 22nd to May 23rd. This congress is hosted under the umbrella of the Emirates Neurological society (EMINS) and the Emirates Medical Association (EMA). The congress, as in the previous years, is endorsed by the Commission of Eastern Mediterranean Affairs (CEMA) and by the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE).


The scientific committee has worked hard to build on the great historical success of the previous congresses, and have managed to put together a rich program with, participation of renowned international and regional faculty, whom during the two days will present cutting edge topics in clinical epileptology. Similar to the previous congresses, our key note speaker will be Professor Emilio Perucca, the President of International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE).


This year’s plenary sessions will address a broad range of topics facing health care providers in their daily practice including: Practical issues of epileptology, new targets for epilepsy therapy, burden of epilepsy, pediatric epilepsy and Intractable Epilepsy. Likewise, debate sessions are expected to raise the most dynamic and controversial topics facing clinicians in the fields of epileptology in an exciting interactive forum that, I trust, will enhance the healthcare professional’s knowledge.


On behalf of the Emirati League Against Epilepsy, it is with great pleasure we invite you to take part in this year’s Congress, which I hope it will be a scientifically and socially rewarding, memorable and enjoyable experience. Welcome to Dubai!

Dr. Taoufik Alsaadi
Congress Chairman
