Dear Friends and Colleagues,
In view of the uncertain situation with COVID-19 affecting many countries in Asia and Oceania, ILAE and IBE have made the difficult decision to stage the 13th Asian & Oceanian Epilepsy Congress (AOEC) as a virtual congress still on the same dates in 2021, 10-13 June. A virtual congress guarantees the health and safety of all participants which is our highest priority and indeed may be a better opportunity to acquire the latest achievements and share research results with each other in the field of epilepsy through the virtual platform reaching all corners of our vast region.
We sincerely hope to welcome each of you online to the 13th AOEC where you will experience an interactive and highly educational congress like never before. Your active participation will make this virtual AOEC a successful one and most importantly enhance epilepsy care, research and regional co-operation among the countries of Asia and Oceania.
With our best wishes,
Akio IKEDA and Ding DING
Co-chairs, Scientific and Organising Committee
