The Hong Kong Neurological Society (HKNS) is honored to host AOCN 2014 and will bring this special occasion to Macao, which is only 60 km from Hong Kong. There are direct flights between Macao and the cities in Mainland China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, The Philippines, Indonesia, Europe and the United States. Also, there is frequent ferry service between Hong Kong and Macao Ferry Terminal.

Hong Kong and Macao are at the center of Asia with easy access to Asian neurologists.  Macao is an interesting place with perfect blending of East and West.

Following the footsteps of the previous successful congresses, the Organizing Committee has been working closely with AOAN to provide you with a valuable opportunity to learn new advances in the field of neurology, an interactive platform for exchange of experiences and a warm atmosphere for establishing collaboration networks.

AOCN 2014 will cover the latest in the speciality of neurology as well as in the allied subspecialties. The Scientific Program Committee has prepared an academically rich scientific program with the regional specialty societies, including The Asian Pacific Stroke Organization (APSO), The Asian Society Against Dementia (ASAD), Commission for Asian Oceanian Affairs (CAOA) of The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE), Asian and Oceanian Chapter International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN), Asian Regional Committee for Headache of International Headache Society (IHS), The Movement Disorder Society (MDS), The Pan-Asian Committee on Treatment and Research of Multiple Sclerosis (PACTRIMS) and The World Federation for NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR).  Besides these societies, we acknowledge The Chinese Society of Neurology under the Chinese Medical Association to be one of the supporting organizations of the congress.

Lectures in a wide range of topics in multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, infection, headache and pain, dementia, movement disorder, stroke, neurogenetics, neurorehabilitation, neuromuscular diseases and neurophysiology as well as the pre-congress workshops have been organized.  Renowned speakers from all around the world as well as local experts from the Asia-Pacific are invited to share their experience and expertise with more than 1,500 neurologists, researchers and other health care professionals from related medical disciplines. An exhibition also will be held concurrently to show you the latest products and services offered by the health care industry.
