The 17th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology

The 17th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology will be held from 23rd to 25th March 2023 in Dubrovnik, Croatia, and it is hoped that the event will be held in person rather than virtually, as it has been for the last few years.

Participants are encouraged to take an active role in the congress by voting on the debates held and engaging with the faculty members present.

Who Can Attend the Congress?

Professionals with specialisms in all fields of neurology are welcome to attend the congress, especially those that specialise in, among others, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, epilepsy, neuroethics, rehabilitation and stroke.

Following the congress, all participants will be emailed a certificate of attendance. If desired, attendees may submit an abstract for consideration; this should be submitted online and received by the deadline of 30th November 2022. No more than one abstract may be submitted by each presenting author.
