The ILAE British Branch Epilepsy Neuroimaging Course was successfully launched in March 2017 and is now in its third year. Open to all healthcare professionals and affiliates and MSc/PhD students, the 3-day course aims to provide both an overview and a solid foundation in state-of-the-art MRI and PET scanning in epilepsy.
The course will:
Consist of lectures and small-group tutorials given by experienced MRI- and PET-clinicians / researchers
Cover aspects of structural and functional MRI acquisition and analysis
Train participants on real patients’ data in hands-on laboratory exercises.
On completion of the course, the participants will be able to:
Employ MRI and PET to influence the clinical management of patients with epilepsy
Select appropriate MRI sequences, and distinguish clinical and MR features of different etiologies
Understand the role of advanced MRI and PET-MR acquisition and post-processing analysis methods.

20th Joint Annual Conference of Indian Epilepsy Society and Indian Epilepsy Association
It gives us great pleasure to invite you for the 20th Joint Annual Conference of Indian Epilepsy Society and Indian Epilepsy Association will be organised from March 8 -10, 2019 (Friday thru Sunday) at New Delhi Municipal Council Convention Centre, Lutyen’s Delhi, Parliament Street, New Delhi-110001, India.
ECON 2019 commits to enhance the content and scientific knowledge to deliver an overwhelming enriching experience to the delegates. Internationally renowned faculty shall be available for scientific deliberations and various platforms of social interactions. The Conference aims to bring together researchers and medical professionals from across the country to interact and forge new relationships.
The meeting will be a scientific blend of collaboration between the Neurologists and Neurosurgeons from all over the country. You will meet stalwarts in their fields who would love to share their professional work, research and academic & clinical experience as well as offer professional and personal insights to further understand the issues involved in the service delivery system. From these standards the meeting shall provide intellectual space for all – “the student to the experts” as well as the delegates.
We are looking forward to host you in the conference and hopefully it will be an academically as well as socially an enriching experience.
THE 13TH WORLD CONGRESS ON CONTROVERSIES IN NEUROLOGY (CONY)
16–20 June 2019
XV Workshop on Neurobiology of Epilepsy WONOEP 2019
The main topic of WONOEP XV is WHAT IS A SEIZURE?
WONOEP XV is a satellite event of the 33rd International Epilepsy Congress. The overall purpose of WONOEP XV will be to discuss working definitions and classification schemes for epileptic seizures across the lifespan, improve methods of seizure recognition, detection, and classification and facilitate translation across species.
Applicants should submit abstracts of their work that addresses the following session themes:
Session A: What is a focal onset seizure?
Session B: What is generalized onset seizure?
Session C: What is seizure in an immature rodent?
Session D: What is the borderland between epileptic events and non-epileptic events?
A maximum of 40 abstracts strictly related to the main topic will be selected. Successful authors will be invited to WONOEP after 1 JANUARY 2019.
Abstracts should be 300 words or less.
Please submit your abstract through our online submission system by 18 NOVEMBER 2018.
For more information regarding WONOEP, abstract submission guidelines, registration and deadlines please visit the 33IEC congress website.
WONOEP 2019 is organized by the WONOEP Task Force of the ILAE Neurobiology Commission and the Neurobiology Commission of the ILAE.
|From the NIH about Epilepsy
Dear Epilepsy Community,
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently reconvened the Epilepsy Seizures and Syndromes Common Data Elements (CDE) Working Group (WG) to revise two Epilepsy CDE classification documents (see below to access). These documents are now available on the NINDS CDE website from June 30 – July 31, 2018 for feedback from the larger Epilepsy research and practice community. We hope you will take the time to review the updated classification documents and provide your comments prior to the general release.
To access and review the CDE recommendations under public review, please follow the steps below:
- Navigate to the following page for the public review zip file: https://www.commondataelements.ninds.nih.gov/Epilepsy.aspx#tab=Data_Standards
- Find the zip file containing the Public Review package on the Epilepsy CDE front page, entitled “Epilepsy CDE Classification Public Review.”
- Download and unzip the zip file.
- Read the “00_Public_Review_Instructions_EpilepsyUpdate.pdf” first for an introduction and tips on how to conduct the review and submit your comments.
- The unzipped Pre-release Public Review Package also contains the Seizures & Syndromes WG and Epilepsy CDE Oversight Committee rosters and the two revised documents for review:
- Classification of Seizures
- Classification of Etiology
We hope that you will share this announcement with your colleagues and encourage them to provide feedback as well. Thank you for your time.

SuSIE – Summer School on Imaging in Epilepsy, Epilepsy Surgery and Epilepsy Research
We thank everybody who made the SuSIE 2018 a very successful event again: faculty, participants, scientists, and partners. Please find pictures of the SuSIE 2018 here: Impressions SuSIE 2018.
The SuSIE 2019 will take place from August 25th to 28th in Bochum, Germany. The structure remains unchanged with 15 lectures and 16 workshops that form the educational core of the event, surrounded by scientific workshops and opportunities to meet with providers of imaging solutions.
This meeting of users, developers and providers of imaging solutions around the indications epilepsy, epilepsy surgery, and epilepsy research in numerous formats (workshops, application trainings, SuSIE-Forum, SuSIE-brain suite, exhibition,SuSIE symposium and SuSIE market space) makes the SuSIE a unique event.
The 2019 SuSIE key note lecture will be held by Prof. Sandor Beniczky, Dianalund and Aarhus, Denmark, on the topic “How computed EEG and MEG analysis change(d) the concept of epilepsy and the presurgical evaluation”.
Thematic highlights will be (provisory list):
- Epilepsy specific application of MRI
- Automated MRI evaluation
- Interictal and ictal electrical source imaging, magnetic source imaging
- Multimodal imaging and transfer of data into neuronavigation and stereotaxy
- Minimal invasive epilepsy surgery
- Tele-medicine solutions in epileptology
How to register for the SuSIE 2019?
- Participants can register for the SuSIE 2019 from January 2019 on the registration page.
