The Scientific Advisory Committee have put together a comprehensive
scientific programme that will be of substantial interest and benefit to
all
those involved in epilepsy research and patient care in the Asian and
Oceanian region. In a change from the format of previous AOEC meetings,
there will be five main sessions followed by post-main sessions mixed with
interesting parallel sessions and platform sessions. The main sessions are
focusing on Social Issues, Paediatrics, Surgical Treatment, Genetics and
Co-morbidities. In addition, a Chairman's Symposium has been added to the
first full day of the congress and on the last day a Highlights Session
will
take place which will sum up the main topics discussed at the 7th AOEC.
