Dear Colleague,

We are very happy to invite you to the upcoming ECON 2020 to be held on 17-19 January, 2020 in the city of Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.

As you must be aware, ECON is the annual meeting of Indian Epilepsy Association and Indian Epilepsy Society. It is where "beautiful minds" of epileptology, caregivers and patients meet, update knowledge and exchange ideas.

We are planning a workshop for enchancing the skills of EEG interpretation (basic and advanced trends) and Imaging in epilepsy. Conference learning will be emphasized at clinical implications of evidence based data. We are sure that this conference will be extremely useful for researchers, practising neurologists, Post graduates patients and care givers.

The city of Ahmedabad, now the seventh largest metropolis in India and the largest in the state of Gujarat, was founded in 1411 AD as a walled city on the eastern bank of the river Sabarmati. Ahmedabad holds the title of “the First Indian City to receive UNESCO's World Heritage City Status”. And we must mention that in the month of January, Ahmedabad is pleasant to stay.

We look forward to welcome you in Ahmedabad.


Warm regards,
Dr. Shalin Shah; MD, DM (Neuro)
Organizing Secretary, ECON 2020

WELCOME TO AHMEDABAD,

India's First Word Heritage City

The 606 year old walled city of Ahmedabad, which was founded by emperor Ahmed Shah, has become India’s first World Heritage City. The World Heritage Committee (WHC) of UNESCO announced it at Krakwo, Poland.

“For over 600 years, Ahmedabad has stood for peace, as a landmark city where Mahatma Gandhi began India’s freedom struggle.
