Asian & Oceanian Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology August 28-31, 2013 Bali, Indonesia
The IFCN holds International Congresses every four years, and also have Chapter meetings in-between. The history of clinical neurophysiology meetings in Asia-Oceania goes back to 1987 when Professor John Desmedt and Thai Neurologist-Clinical Neurophysiologist organized the first Evoked Potential Symposium in Bangkok, and the first Chapter meeting was held in Beijing in September 1996. The second Chapter meeting was held in Manila in January 2000, followed by the third in Chiangmai in February 2005, the fourth meeting was in Seoul, Korea in 2009. and the fifth meeting will be held in Bali, Indonesia.
Since the Chapter meeting in Chiangmai, the Clinical Neurophysiology Society of Singapore and the Clinical Neurophysiology Section of the Malaysian Society of Neurosciences have joined the IFCN, and now the Asia-Oceania Chapter is comprised of 11 member societies. We are most pleased to see the steady growth of clinical neurophysiology in the Asia-Oceania region.
