The congress aim is to provide a forum of excellence in MS education and research. Building on the collective efforts of the scientific committee, the meeting will deliver state-of-the-art presentations on MS by renowned international and regional keynote speakers. The content of the meeting includes up to date information on the latest treatments, clinical research, therapeutic strategies, pathology, imaging, epidemiology, diagnosis, biomarkers, neuromyelitis optica, and much more.

 

The congress will convene over a two-day period to present major updates through plenary sessions and scientific symposia. This year’s congress will also feature parallel sessions addressed to nurses in collaboration with the International Organization of MS Nurses (IOMSN) and the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC).
