Postponement of the 1st North American Epilepsy Congress

The ILAE and IBE have been actively monitoring the evolving situation in North America and world-wide related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the health and well-being of our delegates, stakeholders and employees is of paramount importance to us, the decision has been made to postpone the 1st NAEC (Dates to be confirmed). We will be announcing the new dates in the near future.

Please note that this postponement will be a fully equivalent replacement for the original planned congress. We advise you to check the congress website regularly as we continue to provide updates and relevant information about the congress.

We would like to thank all those involved for contributing to an exciting and educational scientific programme. We would also like to thank all those registered attendees and those interested in attending this congress.

We encourage all participants to act responsibly and to use sound judgement to avoid exposure. Further information is available at:
