19th World Congress of Neurology24 - 30 October 2009 Bangkok, Thailand

Invitationfrom Professor Niphon Poungvarin Congress President WCN 2009 Dear Colleagues: The World Congress of Neurology (WCN) has been the worlds largest scientific event in Neurology for over half a century. Doctors from various disciplines, together with neuroscientists, have collaborated in the organisation of the best academic curriculum at preceding congresses and have contributed greatly to the worldwide neuroscience community. On behalf of The Neurological Society of Thailand (NST) and the WCN 2009 Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to extend our warmest welcome to you all to participate in the WCN 2009 to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, from 24 - 30 October 2009, at The Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC). The WCN 2009 Scientific and Education Committees have prepared a full program of internationally prominent guest speakers under the congress theme Innovation in Neurology covering major themes on each day of the congress including Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy, Movement Disorders, Headache and Pain. The Scientific sessions include Plenary Lectures, Named Lectures, Debate sessions, Invited Lectures, Industry-sponsored Satellite Symposia, free papers, poster sessions, and the 3rd Tournament of the Minds. Aside from the countless opportunities afforded by the congress program, you will also have the chance to experience some of Thailands myriad attractions that make it the most exotic country in the region. From classic sights, such fabulous temples and palaces, to natural wonders as diverse as forested mountains and idyllic beaches and islands, from delicious culinary discoveries to fabulous shopping bargains, there is plenty to leave you with fond memories of Thailand and its hospitable people. On behalf of The Neurological Society of Thailand and the WCN 2009 Organizing Committee, I look forward to welcoming you all to the WCN 2009 and Thailand. Best Wishes,

Niphon Poungvarin, MD., FRCP. Congress President WCN 2009
