IBE at the 28th International Epilepsy Congress
In addition to the scientific and social sessions, IBE also held its biennial General Assembly on 1st July, when the newly elected International Executive Committee began its term of office.
Several Regional Committees took the opportunity to arrange meetings to discuss past activities and future plans. In due course reports from these meetings will be available on the relevant regional pages of the site.
The CEO Group (add link) and the Editors Network (add link) also met and reports from these meetings will also be available to view.
Following the successful displays in Paris and Singapore, an impressive exhibition of posters highlighting the activities and achievements of our Members was mounted during the congress.
We are grateful to Eisai, who supported this endeavour. Almost 50% of Members participated in the Poster Display and the following links will allow you to see of the posters.
