We have pleasure in sending details of the forthcoming Digital Day for our EMEAC Chapter, on October 26th. Registration is needed but is free via http://www.eccn2021-marseille.com/
We encourage as large an audience as possible.
You will see from the programme (attached) that the main part of the day is given over to presentations from those who had submitted abstracts to the cancelled ECCN in Marseille. We felt it very important to allow members who had submitted to Marseille to present their work and then be published on-line in Clinical Neurophysiology. The presentations will be pre-recorded with their authors present live to take questions, similar to EAN congresses for those familiar with them.
The day also involves the EMEAC Chapter’s General Assembly with presentations on the activity by your executive committee and with a chance to question them. Our treasurer will present the budget, which will have been previously circulated to member societies and voted on, electronically, in line with our statutes. Our statutes have also been revised and updated and these will be presented, again after being voted on by member societies.
Each member of the executive committee, EMEAC has a specific area of interest and responsibility and will detail that in their presentation.
Other items include our Memorandum of Understanding with the European Academy of Neurology and discussion of the update Statutes, (now termed By-Laws), following IFCN’s office move to the US. The statutes will also have been voted on before the meeting and the result announced.
After the presentation of submitted abstracts there are talks from members of the European Brain Council and the European Brain Research Area. These are high-level organisations seeking to target and increase research spending on brain related disorders. Your executive has been active within both organisations on behalf of clinical neurophysiology.
The day will begin with short presentations by your executive committee on their own backgrounds, as a way to reveal their interests and expertise, and as a way to encourage other members to come forward to assist the chapter.
It is traditional to have a Presidential Lecture during an incumbent’s term. Professor Cole will give his on-line, in the absence of a face to face congress, on the main area of his neuroscience research, The Neuroscience of Sensory Deafferentation to complete the day.
We hope as many people as possible will attend the day and look forward to meeting you on-line.
Executive Committee, IFCN;
Antonio Martins da Silva
