Welcome Note

On behalf of the scientific committee of the Eight Emirati League Against Epilepsy (ELAE) Congress, it is with great honor I invite you to participate in this congress that will be held from October 27-28, 2023, at the Grand Hyatt Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The congress, as in the previous years, is endorsed by the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE).

Building on the great historical success of the previous congresses we have put together a rich scientific program featuring discussions on diagnosis and treatment advances, new research, epilepsy surgery and social aspects of epilepsy. We are delighted that we are also this year can present Prof. J Helen Cross, President of International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) that along with other world-recognised speakers will share their expertise in the field of epilepsy.

Once more, thank you for your interest to join us at our congress and I wish all of you good health and good spirits.

I look forward to welcoming you at the Eight ELAE Congress.
