Welcome from the Scientific and Organizing Committee

Dear Friends,

Attend the 33rd International Epilepsy Congress in Bangkok Thailand (video)

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 33rd International Epilepsy Congress (IEC) in Bangkok, from Saturday to Wednesday, 22-26 June 2019. This congress is organised by the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) and the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE).

The International Epilepsy Congress is a major biennial event and is recognised as a landmark in the calendar of epilepsy specialists worldwide. The congress gives delegates the chance to come together, discuss the latest developments in basic and clinical epileptology, and network with fellow researchers, clinicians and other health care practitioners. The scientific programme of the 33rd IEC promises to be innovative and engaging, with a wide range of main and parallel sessions, as well as teaching and video sessions.

Bangkok is a culturally rich city with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We look forward to welcoming you at the congress in 2019.

Committee co-chairs,
Samuel Wiebe (Canada), President, ILAE
Martin Brodie (Scotland), President, IBE
Anannit Visudtibhan (Thailand), President, ILAE Thailand Chapter
