Scientific Committee    
  Personal Remarks

I tried to motivate the Scientific Panels to set up groups consisting of representatives of each country in the individual speciality. Some of these panels and their chairmen were very active in setting up co operations, in organizing or contributing to teaching courses and in producing guide lines which were published in the European Journal of Neurology. However, in a considerable number of panels all the efforts to push them into activity were unsuccessful, and often also the replacement of the panel chair did not help. The burden of chairing both committees was rather big. And therefore I was grateful that Richard Hughes accepted to chair the Scientific Committee in 1999.
