Alexis Arzimanoglou, 
Epileptic Disorders
Alexis Arzimanoglou, Editor Emeritus, Epileptic Disorders

Alexis Arzimanoglou was one of the founders of Epileptic Disorders, and together with Jean Aicardi, he made tremendous contributions to building up the journal. In the first years, electronic manuscript management platforms were not available, and Alexis, singlehandedly managed manuscripts submitted by post, as letters and video tapes. Later on, CDs replaced tapes, and in 2006, Epileptic Disorders moved to an online platform.

Thanks to Alexis’ leadership and tenacity, Epileptic Disorders has become the official educational journal of the ILAE, focusing on the clinical practice, with electro-clinical features. Beginning September 1st, Alexis will serve as Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of the journal. We would like to thank him for his dedication in founding and developing the journal, as well as his decisive contribution to the educational programs of the League.
