Dear Friends

Welcome to the lovely city of Budapest.

You are going to find the usual interesting IE News content in this magazine included in your congress bag.

We have recent reports from conferences in India and Zambia as well as a report on the work of the Association Marocaine contre l’Epilepsie, IBE’s Full Member in Morocco. So we continue with our commitment to inform you about the main activities of our Members. There is also a report related to the launch in Argentina of the first Epilepsy Law in favor of people with epilepsy in the Latin American region.

Issue 2 – 2009

We have completed another relevant issue: IBE has finalised the election process of our new Regional Executive Committees. Therefore, I would like to welcome the newly elected members of these committees, both new and re-elected members, to our big family. We wish you the greatest success and best of luck for the next 4 years.

Another important and topical item is the inclusion of tips and ideas on what to see and do during your stay in Budapest.

Finally, Susanne Lund has prepared an article to highlight the importance of the IBEILAE partnership in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the International League Against Epilepsy.

Best regards
Dr Carlos Acevedo
