We welcome you to the official conference website.




Dear Members,

It gives me great pleasure to write this message at a time we are preparing in earnest for the 11th Annual Academic Sessions of the Association of Sri Lankan Neurologists. The Sessions will be held on 17-19th November at the Cinnamon Grand, Colombo.


Professor Raad Shakir, the President of the World Federation of Neurology, will be the Chief Guest at the Opening Ceremony. A vibrant academic programme has been lined up, with a large number of local and overseas speakers. The faculty includes a delegation from the Association of British Neurologists, and we are thankful for their continued support in our Annual Sessions. The programme spans three days, with plenaries, the J. B. Peiris Oration, neurology quizzes and several symposia, including two half-day symposia on movement disorders and stroke. This year, the scientific papers will be given more prominence with daily guided poster walks, which will enable the researchers to present their research to a wider audience. A record number of free paper submissions were received this year, and we are very pleased with this healthy trend. A pre-congress workshop will be conducted for our EEG technician colleagues. I sincerely thank all the invited speakers, the abstract evaluation committee, the oration evaluation committee and the free paper judges for their invaluable contributions.


We have had a busy year full of academic activities targeting neurologists, physicians, and postgraduate trainees in neurology and general medicine. Regular updates under the theme of ‘ABCs in Neurology’ and Clinical Case Discussions were held in Colombo.  Regional Meetings under the theme of ‘Everyday Neurology’ were held in Jaffna, Anuradhapura, Trincomalee, Ratnapura and Monaragala. They were clearly successful in achieving the dual objectives of reaching out to our neurology and physician colleagues, and promoting continued professional development, in the peripheries. I thank all the regional clinical societies, speakers and coordinators for their untiring efforts in making the regional meeting programme a success.    


The Annual Sessions are, of course, the pinnacle of academic activity in the ASN calendar. I invite all of you to join us at the sessions, which will be a time for good cheer, camaraderie and forging lasting friendships, while we discuss ‘Neurology for Tomorrow’.
