Congress Postponed

The ILAE and IBE have been actively monitoring the evolving situation in Asia & Oceania and around the world in relation 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 upcoming 13th AOEC (originally due to take place 8-11 October in Fukuoka, Japan) to 2021. We will be announcing new dates very soon.

Please note that this postponement will be a fully equivalent replacement for the original planned congress; we advise you to check the AOEC congress website regularly as we continue to provide updates and relevant information about the congress there or you may sign up for the congress newsletters by emailing aoec@epilepsycongress.org

We would like to thank all those involved for contributing to a stimulating and educational scientific programme and we look forward to seeing many of you in Fukuoka next year.

If you have any queries, please contact aoec@epilepsycongress.org
