Abstract submissions are welcome for consideration for the GCC Headache & Pain Summit, which will be held in Dubai, UAE from 27-28 May 2022. We are aiming for high-quality fundamental scientific, translational, or clinical research on all areas of neurological illnesses. Original contributions are appreciated, however work offering an overview of a certain topic will be considered. We also accept early data from ongoing research, theoretical work, and publications on innovative theories. The primary assessment criteria are the quality of the study, the topic's relevance to our audience, and the influence on the field.
