A few months ago, Japan welcomed the XXIII World Congress of Neurology which took place in Kyoto. With more than 8600 people from 121 countries attending the congress, it exceeded original expectations for 6000 participants.
Its success was even more important considering the heightened political situation in the region just a few weeks before it opened its doors, as well a typhoon striking Kyoto during the event.
With the theme ‘Defining the Future of Neurology’, the XXIII World Congress of Neurology brought together leading scientists, public health experts and policy-makers to translate recent scientific advances into action and address the means of how to better global treatment standards within the current context of significant global economic challenges.
The next edition of the World Congress of Neurology will take place in Dubai, 2019.
