Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the 12th Asian Oceanian Congress of Child Neurology (AOCCN 2013), Join us in the heart of the Arabian Peninsula to experience a cutting edge scientific program rich in genetic and metabolic child neurology disorders prevalent in the region. You will have the chance to catch up with old friends, make new friends among pediatric neurologists from the Middle East and Asian Oceanian region, network and build bridges, and expand your horizons.

The state of the art Scientific Program is being developed by experts from around the world, and will cover such topics as: Basic Research, Clinical Epilepsy, Neurobehavioral ADHD and Autism, Genetics/Metabolic Disease, Infectious Disease, Headache, and Neuromuscular Disorders. There will also be a strong insight into pediatric neurology topics and diseases prevalent in the Middle Eastern region.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will be the first Middle Eastern country to host this biennial regional meeting, and quite fittingly as the host institution, King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre, is the premier pediatric neurology service in the region. 

The rich scientific program will be accompanied by an equally rich social program, including highly exclusive trips to the ancient stone ruins of Mada’in Saleh, the Hejaz railway, and the historical reconstruction of Al Atheria Royal farms, as well as day trips to the fascinating National Museum, the Arabian Souq, and other cultural and historical tours. 

I very much hope you will join us in Riyadh in 2013, and look forward to welcoming you to our vibrant desert city.
