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.

Abstract submission deadline: 16th 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.

For information on invited speakers and the preliminary conference program, and how to submit abstracts and register visit: http://www.iwsp7.org

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:
Epilepsy Melbourne which brings together Melbourne’s best epilepsy researchers and will be held at the same venue as IWSP7 on the afternoon of August 6th and all of 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!
