The International Conference for Technology and AnaLysis of Seizures, 2019 (ICTALS2019) will take place at the University of Exeter, September 2nd – 5th 2019.
The goal of this conference is 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.
This is the second ICTALS conference, which is an evolution of the previous International Workshop on Seizure Prediction (IWSP) series.
The theme for this year’s conference will be: “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 translatable output of research we will seek to include all relevant communities. In addition to focussing on current scientific, clinical and technological advances, we will take steps to increase accessibility for people with lived experience of epilepsy.
We have begun to create a webpage for the conference, which we will populate with further information in due course. You can find this at: http://exeter.ac.uk/ictals2019
In the mean time, please save the date above in your diary and we will follow up with further information, including registration and programs over the next few months.
Marc Goodfellow (on behalf of the local organising committee).
