UPDATE COVID-19

 

Due to the Covid-19, the organizing comittee has decided to postpone the13th epilepsy colloquium to 2021 same period. No one could predict this extraordinary situation, so we can only apologize for the inconvenience, thank you for your understanding and we count on you next year, same place.

WELCOME TO LONDON!

 

Dear colleague,

 

It is our pleasure to host the 13th epilepsy colloquium in London at the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health June 1 to 3.

We will address a topic of significant importance – early onset childhood epilepsies.

 

Previous editions dedicated to children and adolescents attracted more than 350 participants and brought together international key opinions leaders treating children and adolescents with all types of drug-resistant epilepsies.

We expect the same on this occasion.

 

The 2020 conference will discuss all aspects of the early onset epilepsies, including diagnostics, treatments, as well as outcomes.

Eminent experts in the field, mainly from the US and from the European Reference Network centres EpiCARE, will treat all aspects related to rare and complex epilepsies.

Challenges related to diagnostics, management and treatment decisions will be on the forefront.

An opening lecture will reflect on where we have come, and closing we will reflect on where we are going.

 

We look forward to welcoming you all in London next spring

 

Kind regards,

 

Professor Helen Cross

And the Organizing committee

A second opinion: How EU networks share knowledge to save lives.

In Europe, there are around 30 million people living with rare diseases and conditions,
but no country alone has the knowledge or capacity to treat them.
In 2017, medical practitioners representing 28 centres in 13 EU countries helped a family doctor diagnose and decide on treatment for a child with a rare case of epilepsy.
