Mostafa El Alaoui FarisWCN 2011: WCN President's Welcome Note

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the 20th World Congress of Neurology in Marrakesh (Morocco),  November 12-17, 2011.

Marrakesh is more than just another nice city, it has something very special: a hint of magic, a soul. Sitting in an oasis of palms and olive trees near the Atlas Mountains with their perpetual snow, Marrakesh is only three hours from many African and European capitals.

Historically, Marrakesh is the heiress of an original civilization, distinctive by its architecture, traditional crafts, cuisine (one of the most famous gastronomies of the world) and the legendary hospitality of its people. In Marrakesh you can discover 1,000 years of history and culture at every corner of the Medina (old city) and even trace the steps of Averroes and Maimonides, masters of medicine and philosophy.

We look forward to welcoming you to WCN 2011. The scientific content and organization coupled with the wonderful and safe city of Marrakesh in all its magnificence will surely make it an unforgettable experience.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Mostafa El Alaoui Faris
President of the WCN 2011
