The IEC is the most important biennial international event for the epilepsy community to share knowledge, skills and experience in order to provide better care for patients all around the world.

Both the ILAE and the IBE have a mission to bring epilepsy education to the broadest audience. By reducing the registration fees for the IEC 2021, we hope that more colleagues from around the world will be able to attend.
