The conference will be held at the Auditórium Universidad Torcuato Di Tella, a  unique opportunity for neurologists and researchers from the wider Latin America region to come together to discuss headache medicine and science with international headache opinion leaders.

Key international speakers will include IHS President Cristina Tassorelli, IHS President-elect Rami Burstein, IHS Honorary Secretary Patricia Pozo-Rosich, IHS Past-President Messoud Ashina and members of the IHS Board and Committees. Local and regional headache specialists will also bring their expertise to the conference to deliver a programme that will not only include a variety of scientific sessions and courses covering international scientific data and practices, but also sessions based on local needs, and practical courses for young delegates to guide them in their future careers.
