Dear Colleagues and Friends

On behalf of the Congress Chairman, I am delighted to cordially invite and welcome you to join the 5th Asia Oceanian Congress of NeuroRehabilitation, AOCNR 2023, which will be held during December 13-16, 2023 at TRUE ICON HALL, ICONSIAM, Bangkok, Thailand. It is in conjunction with the 2023 Annual Scientific Meeting of the Royal Colleague of Physiatrists of Thailand and the Thai Rehabilitation Medicine Association, as well as the Thai Society of NeuroRehabilitation, under the theme “Multifaceted Neurorehabilitation: from Tradition to Innovation”. There will be a day of pre-congress workshops related to advanced, high-technology and interventions in neurorehabilitation, followed by the 3-day main congress. It will be a good time to bring our life back into society in the post-pandemic era for academic activities to link-share-learn and travelling to absorb the beauty of culture and nature where Bangkok, Thailand is one of the best destinations in the world. Our conference will be the on-site platform.

This congress is supported by the Asia Oceanian Society for Neurorehabilitation (AOSNR) and the World Federation for Neurorehabilitation (WFNR). We hope to get and gather the delegates, experts and faculty involved in the field of neurorehabilitation regionally and globally including physiatrists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropediatricians, development pediatricians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, clinical psychologists, orthotists and prosthetists, biomedical engineers, music therapists, and others. It will be a stage of new researches, ideas and concepts in neurorehabilitation including keynotes, plenary sessions, symposia, guest lectures, parallel sessions, meet the expert, teaching courses and workshops. Oral presentations and E-poster presentations are also the interesting sessions. A variety of sessions will ensure inter-professional education with interactive communication among experts and participants. Currently, our organizing committee is working very hard to make this event wonderful in the aspect of scientific program and memorable social activities.

Ultimately, I hope everyone enjoy our programs and the knowledge and skills gained from this conference will have an impact on your practice to improve the patient care and enhance quality of life of your patients.

I look forward to welcoming all of you to the AOCNR 2023 and please mark your calendar.

Sincerely yours,

Welcome all to the 5th Asia Oceanian Congress of Neurorehabilitation 2023!

The Asia Oceanian Society of Neurorehabilitation (AOSNR) is an important dynamic association focused on the practice and study of Neurorehabilitation, with special emphasis on our region, the Asia Oceania, the region of the 60% of the world’s population.

This organization is unique – combining Rehabilitation Medicine with other medical specialties, and inclusive too to allied health professionals, who are our partners in the care of our patients with Neurorehab disorders.

In 2008 we held the Tripartite Meeting of Neurorehabilitation in the Philippines with Hongkong and Thailand experts, and from then on, we have had strong partnerships with Thailand in the field of NeuroRehabilitation, with Thailand and the Philippines, as leading and founding members of AOSNR.

The AOSNR has aligned with the objectives of the World Federation for Neurorehabilitation, which includes the development and improvement of the quality of NeuroRehabilitation across the region, collaboration of practitioners with similar interest, and cooperation amongst National Societies with facilitating exchange of scientific research and the best practices in each area.

This conference is exciting, as we focus on conditions and treatments more common to our region. We will also include complementary and traditional medical practices. We will update and discuss challenges, which include new findings, new technology, and new treatments through Computers.

We continue to study and practice to ultimately achieve our aim: that of uplifting our people with Neurorehabilitation disorders

Save the date and see you all in AOCNR Bangkok in December 2023! Welcome and Long Live AOSNR!
