Due to numerous requests the abstract submission deadline for IWSP7: Epilepsy Mechanisms, Models, Prediction and Control has been extended to April 30 2015.

For more details visit the conference website at http://www.iwsp7.org and/or read below.

The 7th International Workshop on Seizure Prediction (IWSP7: Epilepsy Mechanisms, Models, Prediction & Control) will bring together world leading epileptologists, engineers, physicists, mathematicians, neurosurgeons and neuroscientists to focus on epilepsy research in Melbourne Australia from 3-6 August 2015.

Invited Speakers
Samuel Berkovic, University of Melbourne, Australia (Genetics and individual-specific nature of epilepsy)
Sydney Cash, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, USA (Cortical physiology and epilepsy)
Antonio Dourado, University of Coimbra, Portugal (Seizure Prediction and the EPILEPSIAE project)
Bin He, University of Minnesota, USA (EEG-based imaging to localise seizure and high frequency activity)
Louis Lemieux, University College London, UK (Multi-modal imaging of human epileptic zone and networks)
Liset Menendez de la Prida, Instituto Cajal - CSIC, Spain (Sources of functional heterogeneity in the cellular activity of hippocampal microcircuits in temporal lobe epilepsy)
Martha Morrell, Stanford University, Neuropace, USA (Responsive seizure control and its clinical implications)
Philippe Ryvlin, Lyon University, France (Vagal nerve stimulation and seizure prediction)
Bjoern Schelter, University of Aberdeen, UK (Recent advances in data-based modelling and their role in epilepsy research)
Steven Schiff, Penn State University, USA (Unification of spikes, seizures and spreading depression)
Piotr Suffczynski, University of Warsaw, Poland (Modelling of neuronal and ionic dynamics during ictogenesis)
John Terry, University of Exeter, UK (Modelling multiscale brain networks: seizure initiation, evolution and prediction)

Extended Abstract submission deadline: 30th April 2015.
Notification of acceptance: 31st May 2015.

Early bird registration: full: AU$465; Student/Early Career Researcher: AU$165.
Early bird registration deadline: 30th June 2015.
Standard registration: full: AU$565; Student/Early Career Researcher: AU$265.

Over 30 generous travel stipends will be awarded to participants submitting the best abstracts as determined by the IWSP7 Scientific Advisory Board. The majority will be awarded to undergraduate or postgraduate students and early career researchers (people who completed their PhD within the period of the 3 years preceding 3rd August 2015).

The best abstracts will also be selected for talks by the IWSP7 Scientific Advisory Board.

Topics for abstracts include, but are not limited to: seizure prediction, detection and control; seizure mechanisms, animal models and human neurophysiology; neuroimaging of epilepsy/seizure localisation; computational modelling of epilepsy; epilepsy networks; high frequency oscillations; model-based estimation, statistical signal processing or control theory applied to epilepsy.

The best work presented at IWSP7 will be invited to appear in a special issue in the International Journal of Neural Systems (Impact factor 6.056). The call for papers can be downloaded from the IWSP7 website.

There will also be two A$500 prizes for the best posters at the conference.

Please forward this notice to anyone that you think might be interested. Or post the conference poster around your department. The poster can be obtained at the link: http://www.iwsp7.org/flyers/IWSP7_Call_for_Abstracts.pdf

We would also like to draw your attention to two partner events:
Melbourne Epilepsy which brings together Melbourne's best epilepsy researchers and will overlap at the same venue with IWSP7 on August 6th, and finish by 1pm on August 7th. Attendance is free for IWSP7 registrants.
Swinburne Brain Imaging Symposium 2015: Principles and Applications of Magnetoencephalography is a meeting on MEG and neuroimaging occurring in Melbourne in the week preceding IWSP7 from June 29-30 2015. http://www.research.swinburne.edu.au/our-research/events/neuroimaging-symposium.html

We look forward to seeing you at IWSP7!
