Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 9th Latin American Congress on Epilepsy in Cancun (Mexico) between 20th - 23rd August, 2016.

This biennial meeting, which is a joint collaboration of the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) in association with The Mexican Chapter of the International League Against Epilepsy (CAMELICE), affords delegates a unique opportunity for face to face interaction with the finest minds in the field. It also allows delegates to gain insight into the latest research and to get in touch with the many different nationalities that will be in attendance.

A great number of suggestions for topics and speakers were received from the ILAE chapters and IBE associations throughout the region, and the committee has created an outstanding scientific programme covering a diverse range of topics encompassing recent scientific, clinical and social advancements in the field of epilepsy. As always, there will be a strong emphasis on high quality poster presentations.

The IBE Day will also take place offering an exciting programme to those living with epilepsy and to others in the community supporting those living with epilepsy.

We hope to see you in Cancun!

Medina, Marco Tulio
Mesa, Tomás
Quiñones, Gerardo
