Academically our CONy Congress will raise the most dynamic and controversial topics facing clinicians in the fields of neurology in an exciting debate forum. The congress will promote excellence in the field by seeking to shed light on ongoing and challenging debates and to bridge gaps between the expansion of information and its consolidation in clinical practice. The Society for the Study of Neuroprotection and Neuroplasticity (SSNN) is an Academic Partner of the CONy Congresses.
Allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussion, the congress aims at reaching up-to-date and agreed-upon answers to ongoing debates even when data remains limited, through evidence-based medicine and expert opinion. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in this vibrant meeting which will facilitate discussions on the shared experiences and opinions of leading local and international experts.
The CONy Congress will emphasize issues related to the region in terms of epidemiology, genetics, diagnostics and clinical management, as well as typical complications and distinctive responses to treatments.

Accreditation for Continuing Medical Education (CME)
The 7th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy), Istanbul, Turkey, April 11-14, 2013 is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists.
The congress is designated for a maximum of (or 'for up to') 12 hours of European external CME credits. Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme.
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognized by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMEC credits are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. The EACCME credit system is based on 1 ECMEC per hour with a maximum of 3 ECMECs for half a day and 6 ECMECs for a full-day event.
