Visiting Professorships

Stefano Francione will visit Centro Hospitalar e Universitário de Coimbra, Portugal. The main objective of this exchange program would be to accomplish these two steps: (1) Pre-surgical evaluation of the patients; (2) Defining surgical procedure

Walter van Emde Boas and Thea Gutter will visit the Pediatric Neurology Clinic, Alexandru Obregia Hospital, Bucharest, Romania. They will train physicians and nurses dealing with EEG and patients with epilepsy, in order to establish a functional epilepsy surgery team.

6th Regional Caucasian Summer School on Clinical Epileptology (RCSSCE)
Bakuriani, Georgia, 31 May - 4 June 2014
The program includes full 4 days teaching course. It is based on didactic format that promotes the combination of lectures and tutorials that are highly interactive. Bursaries will be given to 50 participants from Caucasian countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia), but also small co funding from the participants will be needed (about 20 % of the cost). Students from other countries are also welcome. Main organizer: Nana Tatishvili, president of the Georgian League Against Epilepsy E-mail: 9th International Postgraduate Practical Epilepsy School The course will take place in Slovenia, June 5 - 7, 2014 The event will feature one day workshop on how to investigate seizures with available means on the board – not all countries in the region have a proper epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU). So, good knowledge can sometimes be used to try compensating for the lack of staff and equipment. We are not happy about that, but this is the reality of things in many places. The second part is a two day course and workshop on psychiatric co-morbidity in people with epilepsy and learning disability. The school will be hosting 30-40 participants, with eminent faculty from the best European Epilepsy Centers, combining approaches and experience of various "national schools" transplanted to the regional enviroment. Contact person Svetlana Simic Klobucic ( will be glad to answer any further questions. Course director: Igor M. Ravnik

International training course in Stereo-ElectroEncephaloGraphy (SEEG)
The course will take place in Venice, Italy, February 4-8, 2014
The SEEG training course was launched in 2010. Following a four-year cycle organised in France, the SEEG course has now moved to Venice for another four years. This course is targeting epileptologists and neurosurgeons involved in epilepsy surgery willing to develop or increase their expertise in the field of SEEG. The educational program is primarily based on the analysis of real video-EEG, neuroimaging and SEEG data which participants can investigate using appropriate computer systems. Participants, supervised by SEEG experts, elaborate proposals regarding the number and position of electrodes which should be implanted and final surgical plan. Lectures on related topics complete the five days duration program.

Encephalopathy with Electrical Status Epilepticus During Sleep
Linking epilepsy, sleep disruption and cognitive impairment
14-15 March, 2014; ScienceTalenter, Sorø Akademi, Denmark
The aim of this conference is to bring together clinicians and scientists, who have been working on ESES and sleep physiology to create a better overall understanding of this special syndrome in the light of recent research.
