This two-day meeting of the British and Danish ILAE branches addresses two topics of advanced epileptology: epilepsy surgery and channelopathies. Experts in these fields will review the state of the art of these rapidly developing areas. Case presentations will help to relate new knowledge in clinical practice.

Following the meeting, participants will be able to:

  • Comprehend risks and benefits of epilepsy surgery
  • Identify patients who need to be evaluated for epilepsy surgery
  • Understand the importance of the multidisciplinary approach in presurgical evaluation
  • Integrate novel diagnostic and surgical techniques in presurgical evaluation
  • Comprehend the importance of channelopathies in patients with epilepsy
  • Identify patients in whom genetic testing for channelopaties is indicated
  • Use precision medicine in treatment of patients with channelopathies


We are inviting abstract submissions describing Epilepsy Surgery cases for possible presentation at the two-day meeting of the Danish and UK ILAE Chapters. Abstracts describing worked up, adult and paediatric cases who have undergone epilepsy surgery, where there are interesting and educational aspects will be chosen for presentation. 

  • Abstract length: Not more than 500 words.
  • Abstract online submission deadline: 28th February 2019 at 23:00 hrs.

Submitting authors will need to confirm they have patient consent for the case presentation, including videos of seizures. Please can you confirm this in writing at the bottom of the abstract.

Cases with a lesson are more likely to be chosen if they fulfil at least one or more of the following criteria:

  • Innovative treatment solutions
  • Well defined localisation of clinical phenomena
  • Clear resolution of a clinical conundrum
  • Unusual semiology
  • Post surgical resolution / cure
  • A pitfall in practice
