Dear Participants of the 7th Annual International Headache Symposium

It is with a heavy heart that we write to inform you that due to the current and tragic situation here in Israel the decision has been made to cancel the 7th Annual International Headache Symposium in Israel that was scheduled to take place on
25 October, 2023.

Our first priority is the safety of our participants and have decided that the best and safe option is to postpone the Symposium.

We hope to be able to arrange new dates
in the near future.

We pray for the safety of our country, our citizens and our soldiers and thank you for your understanding.
