The 24th World Congress of Neurology was held held Oct. 26-Nov. 1, 2019, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Many topics were presented by well-known experts worldwide. Formal and informal meetings in the congress gave an excellent opportunity to greet and meet or to share an exchange of knowledge and ideas, even on ongoing research projects to enhance and collaborate. This event was the best opportunity for new networking and contact with others.

It was a great honor given to me by the WFN to attend the congress as a poster presenter. I received many questions during my poster session as well as remarks from colleagues. This includes Prof. Reilly from the University College London, who had abundant questions about my poster. Overall, this congress gave me a boost to gain a better experience for further development as young neurologist.

My attendance at the congress was kindly supported by the WFN with support from the WFN Junior Traveling fellowship. I wish to express my gratitude and happiness for this great opportunity. Great thanks to all members of the WFN. •

As one of the privileged recipients of the WFN Junior Traveling fellowship 2019 Award, I attended the World Congress Neurology 2019, Oct. 27-31 at the World Trade Centre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The registration for the congress, visa, flight, and accommodations were all free. I also had two of my abstracts accepted for poster presentation, which I uploaded before the congress.

The setting of the conference – the World Trade Centre – was excellent. I participated in the plenary sessions, teaching courses, botulinum toxin workshop, and tournament of the mind. The exhibition stand and congress abstract viewing sessions were equally enlightening.

This conference will remain the memorable one as it gave me opportunity to meet new friends and colleagues.

I remain grateful to the World Federation Neurology for support. Accept my kind regards. •

I am very happy to write this report after finishing the World Congress of Neurology 2019 in Dubai. This wonderful scientific event in all fields of neurology over five days covered each branch of neurology, with very informative teaching courses and a large number of posters with new fields of research.

In addition to all of the scientific aspects of the congress, I participated in the social network event in Bab Al Shams, which is a wonderful place with historic style for old Arabian life, and the horse and camel show.

Lastly, I would like to thank the WFN committee that helped me to attend this important event. Special thanks Prof. Steven Lewis and Jade Levy for their efforts on my behalf. •

I want to thank the WFN for helping me to attend the WCN 2019 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. I was very satisfied with all the lectures, especially those concerning epilepsy and movement disorders. The congress provided the most up-to-date scientific content. Thank you. •
