Clare College in Cambridge, UK

48 international delegates attended from 26 different countries.


Attendees and faculty

3 ½ day residential EEG course with an emphasis on interactive, hands-on experience. The content covers normal aturational aspects, abnormal EEG patterns and graphoelements in neonates and infants as well as the range of seizures and epilepsies encountered in day to day practice in the first year of life. It consists of lectures and practical workshops during which EEG examples will be reviewed by participants in small groups under the supervision of a faculty tutor.

The course is targeted at pediatric neurologists, clinical neurophysiologists, pediatricians and neonatologist who deal with neonates and infants with seizures or epilepsy. It is limited to 48 participants, so early booking is strongly recommended. Basic EEG knowledge is a requirement for the course and applicants will be selected on the basis of their CVs.

The course is organized under the auspice of the ILAE.
A limited number of bursaries are available on request.
