International Conference for Technology and Analysis of Seizures, 2019 (ICTALS2019)

2-5 September 2019, University of Exeter

ICTALS2019 aims to bring together neurologists, neuroscientists, researchers from quantitative disciplines and people with lived experience of epilepsy in order to work as a community to advance our understanding of epilepsy and develop practical ways to improve diagnosis and treatment.

 

Registration for ICTALS 2019 is now open! 

To register please follow this link: https://store.exeter.ac.uk/conferences-and-events/college-of-engineering-mathematics-and-physical-sciences/conferences/international-conference-for-technology-and-analysis-of-seizures-2019-ictals2019

 

The theme for this year’s conference is: The Epilepsy Journey: from first seizure to treatment and beyond. We will emphasise how advances in our understanding of the dynamics of brain networks can be used to make a difference to people with epilepsy at all points of their journey: from elucidating the causes of the first seizure to diagnosing epilepsy, understanding how ictogenic networks give rise to recurrent seizures and how this insight can inform personalised treatment.

To encourage this focus on the whole epilepsy journey we seek to include all relevant communities. In addition to discussions on current scientific, clinical and technological advances, we will take steps to increase accessibility for people with lived experience of epilepsy.

 

Social arranged!

Join us for a ferry trip to the Turf Hotel (https://www.turfpub.net/) followed by BBQ and drinks on Wednesday September 4th. Sign up by email to ictals2019@exeter.ac.uk or at the conference.
