On behalf of the organizing committee and the scientific committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the Third Annual Emirates International Pediatric Neurology Conference (EIPN).

Building on your contribution to the success of the first and second editions of the Abu Dhabi Pediatric Neurology Conferences in 2011 and 2013, we are delighted once again to welcome you in to the bustling metropolitan city of Dubai.

The 2014 edition has taken a graceful step towards the international arena in order to deliver a higher caliber meeting. The scientific committee has therefore compiled the ample meeting that will deliver plenty of educational opportunities in the growing and exciting field of pediatric neurology.

This meeting is also a great opportunity to meet and network with colleagues, both regional and international while expanding existing connections or creating new ones, and finding opportunities for future collaboration in common areas of interest. More than 300 healthcare professionals are expected to come from the Middle East and GCC region. This should bring together international and local expertise to pediatric neurology, and promoting promote better practice in pediatric care in the Gulf region.

Through a culmination of collective efforts, the conference will convene over a two-day program and present a high-level scientific content with major updates and state-of-the-art presentations, plenary sessions, personal practice sessions, abstract oral presentations, poster displays and clinical practice symposia.
