Welcome message

As the ASNA 2021 Congress Chair, I have the greatest pleasure of extending my invitation to all of you to join the 14th Biennial Convention of The ASEAN Neurological Association 2021 (ASNA 2021 Bangkok), co-hosted by the Neurological Society of Thailand and the ASEAN Neurological Association, during 19th - 21st October 2021.

The ASEAN Neurological Association (ASNA) is an academic network of neurologists within South East Asia region. Since the Biennial meeting starting in 1997, ASNA conference has always been a great place to update the knowledge, share local experiences and meet friends from across the region. However, due to the on-going global COVID-19 pandemic where traveling is not possible, the organizing committee has decided to hold the ASNA 2021 in a fully virtual format. This year’s conference theme is “Fostering ASEAN Collaboration to Advanced New Technologies for Neurologists During COVID-19 Pandemic” in which we aim to deliver an exciting and all-rounded virtual scientific program that encompasses various topics relevant to research and clinical practices in the region. Correspondingly, the congress will emphasize on various aspects of the COVID-19 challenges. We expect that there will be more than 800 participants joining the conference.

With the virtual platform, participants will be able to join the scientific sessions and e-poster with ease. VDO on demand will be available in the system for 90 days after the meeting. Abstract submissions to share recent research and knowledge are strongly encouraged. Along with scientific program, we are also trying to maintain ASNA spirits during the opening ceremony, fellowship night, and video contest, which I strongly encourage you to participate in. Virtual exhibition booths from the leading companies in the field will also be available.

On behalf of the Neurology Society of Thailand and the ASEAN Neurological Association, I am truly looking forward to seeing you at this coming informative and enjoyable ASNA 2021 virtual congress.

Warmest regards,

Nijasri C. Suwanwela, M.D.
