Workshop on ‘Perturbations in Epilepsy - Quantifying the impact of seizure triggers'

  • 26 Jun 2023

  • University of Birmingham (UK)

It is our honour to announce the second edition of our hot-topic workshop series ‘Perturbations in Epilepsy’ to be held on June 26-27, 2023, at the University of Birmingham, UK. The theme of this year’s event is 'Quantifying the impact of seizure triggers'.

The workshop is organised by the Centre for Systems Modelling and Quantitative Biomedicine (SMQB) and is planned as an in-person event. We are bringing together key stakeholders including patients with lived experience, clinicians and academics working at the forefront of epilepsy research, and partners from the wearables and neurotechnology industries to enable knowledge exchange and facilitate new collaborations on community-based epilepsy management.

We have an exciting lineup of keynote speakers giving talks across three thematic sessions:
- Clinical perspectives: Neurologists and neurophysiologists sharing their perspectives about seizures and their triggers.
- Industry perspectives: Representatives from the industry presenting solutions/devices that could help monitor seizure triggers.
- Modelling perspectives: Academics sharing their perspectives on how this data could be included in seizure prediction and prevention.

We are also hosting a poster session on the first day, giving early career researchers an opportunity to showcase their work and gather feedback. On the second day, we will conclude with an ECR Symposium to discuss best practices and future requirements to support early career researchers to thrive in the epilepsy research community.

For further details including the programme and how to register and submit an abstract, please visit the event website at www.birmingham.ac.uk/PerturbationsInEpilepsy
We are offering a reduced rate for student registration to encourage their participation.

We look forward to hosting you at Birmingham!
