Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the International Symposium on the Pathophysiology of Developmental and Epileptic Encephalopathy (ISDEE2020), which is being held as the 21st Annual Meeting of the Infantile Seizure Society (ISS) in Okayama, Japan in 2020.

At this symposium, we intend to discuss and investigate the issues of developmental and epileptic encephalopathy (DEE) in infancy and childhood that involve clinical neurophysiology. Through neurophysiology, clinical epileptology can be understood as electrical dysfunctions of the brain, and basic neuroscience, including genetics, metabolism, brain ontogenesis, and other fields, reveals how electrical disturbances occur in the neuronal system, leading to the generation of seizures. Neurophysiology may be regarded as a link between clinical epileptology and basic neuroscience, and it is therefore the cornerstone of ISDEE2020.
