Physicians, even when not specialized in epilepsy, have to face new-onset potentially rare, complex or drug-resistant epilepsies. EEG and Video-EEG (VEEG) are always the first diagnostic tools with history acquisition and clinical examination. Analysis of the EEG and VEEG recordings guide both the prescription of other diagnostic investigations (neuroimaging, genetic screening) and the first treatment choices. Follow-up and treatment strategies also highly depend upon EEG and VEEG.
These courses on interactive interpretation of EEG and VEEG patterns is developed specifically for child neurologists, neurophysiologists and pediatricians caring for children with epilepsy.
The event is divided in 2 parts :
EEG Interpretation in pediatric epilepsies from October 10th to 14th,
& Interactive pediatric epilepsy surgery course from October 15th to 16th.

Endorsed by the EPNS & ILAE, supported by EpiCARE as part of the Education & Training workgroup.
- Highly experienced mentors will lead the lessons: to privilege interaction each course will be limited to 40 participants. In addition, 5 additional inscriptions will be granted to neurophysiopathology technicians.
- The course is designed in the format of practical training modules. To facilitate interaction during EEG interpretation the learners will be matched in groups of maximum 6 per 2 mentors.
- Pre-acquired basic EEG knowledge is highly recommended, but if it will be necessary one basic group of 6 learners could be formed.
- Registration will be offered on a first-come first-served basis.
