Dear Colleagues,

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders in any part of the world. The social and economic impact of epilepsy is far more pervasive and enduring, than the seizures that last only for a minute. Recently there had been significant strides in the understanding of how seizures occur and get perpetuated, how it can be controlled or eliminated by medical or surgical treatments.

The International League Against Epilepsy, International Bureau of Epilepsy and its counterparts in India, Indian Epilepsy Society and Indian Epilepsy Association have been attempting to translate the current research in this field into changes in practice and care that would make a difference for the people with epilepsy.

The joint annual meeting of the Indian Epilepsy Association and Indian Epilepsy Society (ECON) had been the focal point of these efforts in India for the past several years. However, we could not have this meeting in 2021 due to the unprecedented situations arising from Covid Pandemic. ECON is the platform were epileptologists meet and deliberate on the nuances of diagnosis and care for people with epilepsy.

On behalf of the entire organizing committee, I am delighted to welcome you to the ECON2022 at Trivandrum, Kerala State from 05 - 07 August 2022. We have a very engaging scientific program that covers all aspects of epilepsy from basic science to clinical care and long-term management. Well known experts in the respective fields from abroad and India will be leading these symposia and other academic programs. There is ample opportunity for the delegates to interact with the faculty.

The conference will be held at O by Tamaraa hotel at Trivandrum which is perfect for both business and leisure. Our beautifully designed rooms and facilities are equipped with every amenity the modern traveller needs. You can unwind yourself here in the evenings. The venue has a nice ambience where you could spend some time with your old friends even as you make new friends.

I encourage you to mark your calendar and attend the meeting. Make it a memorable event for you as well as all the other participants.

With warm regards,

Dr Sanjeev V. Thomas MD, DM.

Chairman, Organizing Committee for ECON 2022.
