The World Federation of Neurology is pleased to invite bids to from member societies in the Asia and Oceania region to host the World Congress of Neurology (WCN) in 2025 at a suitable venue.

The World Congress of Neurology is the premier educational event of the World Federation of Neurology.

If your society would like to be a candidate to host WCN 2025, please write to the WFN Headquarters Office at the address below to express your preliminary interest. You will be sent an application form which must be completed and returned by 31st July 2020. You may be invited to present your bid to the upcoming Council of Delegates Annual General Meeting to be held on 9th September 2020 at the ECTRIMS/ACTRIMS meeting in Washington (at this stage). Before that, all applications will be treated in confidence and will be reviewed by the WFN to draw up a short-list of possible venues.

Those that are short-listed will be notified by the middle of December 2020. A site visit by WFN officers and a representative of the WFN Professional Congress Organiser, to evaluate the proposed venue and related facilities will take place in the ensuing months. A report and recommendation will then be submitted to the Council of Delegates meeting during the WCN 2021 in Rome, where the final vote and decision will occur.

The WFN looks forward to hearing from any member neurological society that wishes to be considered as the host of WCN 2025.
