Welcome Message

  Being the President of Taiwan Neurological Society (TNS), it is really a great honor to be the host of 17th Asian Oceanian Congress of Neurology (AOCN) which will held from 8-11 October 2020 at Taipei International Convention Center (TICC), Taipei, Taiwan. I am also excited to welcome you all to participate in this great event on the behalf of organizing and scientific committee of AOCN 2020.

  We, the TNS, have much experience of hosting successful international congress, and currently is fully engaged in organizing the AOCN 2020 to be a four-day program includes two plenary lectures, 18 parallel sessions, and 8 educational sessions. There will be more than 150 lectures given by renowned international speakers and local experts to converse current findings, to promote new concept, and to share the latest understanding of neurology and neuroscience.

  The landscape of neurology and neuroscience is rapidly evolving to an amazing territory fulfilled with fantastic ideas, fresh application, and novel therapeutics. The catchphrase of AOCN 2020 “Approaching New Frontiers of Neurology” is quite timely and attractive. We design the scientific program to provide specific perspectives on neurogenetic, neurophysiology, neurorehabilitation, neuromodulation, neuroimage, neuroimmunology, neuromuscular disorders, movement disorders, cerebrovascular disorders, neurobehavior disorders, sleep disorders, and headache. The unique feature of AOCN 2020 will be that we innovate two new parallel sessions in the history of AOCN “neuropathology” and “clinical implementation of Artificial Intelligence”, and we offer many plentiful educational sessions of skilled forum, workshops and case-based learnings.

  Please take the advantage of your stay in Taipei to explore the capital city of Taiwan. You can enjoy this vibrant city through multidimensional cultures, magnificent landscapes, famous Taiwanese cuisine and special lifestyles.

  We promise that your presence at AOCN 2020 will be an enriched and memorable experience and sincerely anticipate your attendance.

With kind regards and best wishes
