Congress postponed to 2021

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 upcoming 1st NAEC to 2021.

Please note 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.

In the meantime, we encourage all participants to act responsibly and to use sound judgement to avoid exposure. Further information is available at the WHO website and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
