Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the scientific committee of the Seventh Emirati League Against Epilepsy (ELAE) Congress. The congress, as in the previous years, is endorsed by the ILAE-Eastern Mediterranean Region and by the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE).

The scientific committee has worked hard to build on the great historical success of the previous congresses and have managed to put together a rich program with, participation of renowned international and regional faculty, whom during the two days will present cutting edge topics in clinical epileptology.

This year’s plenary sessions will address a broad range of topics facing health care providers in their daily practice including: Practical issues of epileptology, new targets for epilepsy therapy, burden of epilepsy, pediatric epilepsy and Intractable Epilepsy. Likewise, debate sessions are expected to raise the most dynamic and controversial topics facing clinicians in the fields of epileptology in an exciting interactive forum that, I trust, will enhance the healthcare professional’s knowledge.

On behalf of the Emirati League Against Epilepsy, it is with great pleasure we invite your company to take part in this year’s Congress, which I hope it will be a scientifically and socially rewarding, memorable and enjoyable experience. Welcome to Dubai!

Taoufik M Alsaadi

Congress Chairman<br/ >President, Emirati League Against Epilepsy
