The European Congress on Epileptology (ECE) is now a landmark in the epilepsy community agenda and the Prague 2016 promises to be innovative and engaging.

Topic Area(s):

The 13th Eilat Conference on New Antiepileptic Drugs and Devices will be introducing debates as well as adhering to the format of the previous conferences which are designed to provide an in-depth progress report on new antiepileptic drugs in various stages of development, as well as to present new findings on second-generation treatments. 

On April 17-19, 2013, NINDS hosted Curing the Epilepsies 2013: Pathways Forward, the third in a series of Curing the Epilepsies conferences held in partnership with epilepsy advocacy and professional organizations to assess progress in epilepsy research and help set an agenda for future years. As an important outcome, these conferences have led to the development of Benchmarks for Epilepsy Research, which reflect priorities shared across the epilepsy community for research toward clinically meaningful advances in understanding and treating the epilepsies.

Topic Area(s):
Area 1:  Understand what causes the many types of the epilepsies and commonly co-occurring symptoms people experience
  1. Learn more about genetics and how changes in some genes result in seizures and epilepsy

The 31st International Epilepsy Congress (IEC) will take place in Istanbul, Turkey between 5th - 9th September, 2015.
The scientific programme of the 31st IEC promises to be innovative and engaging, with a wide range of main and parallel sessions, as well as teaching and video sessions.

Topic Area(s):

Researchers from Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital now provide evidence that epileptic spasms originate from the pyramidal cells in the deep layers of the neocortex. Further, they uncovered a novel neurophysiological phenomenon that explains how cortical neurons generate spasms.

The goals of this workshop are to optimize and accelerate the development of therapies for anti-epileptogenesis and disease-modification in the epilepsies by:
