The International Organising and Scientific Committee (ISOC) is currently working to create a scientific program which will be of great interest to all, encompassing recent scientific developments and exchange of ideas and information between basic scientists, researchers and clinicians working in the field of epilepsy throughout the region.
The aim of the ISOC is to create a comprehensive programme which will encompass topical and varied themes. As in past ECEs, the structure of the programme will comprise four main topics. The main themes and chairs selected by the Organising Committee are as follows:
- Childhood epileptology – Topic Chair: Martha Feucht (Austria)
- Adult epileptology – Topic Chair: Alla Guekht (Russian Federation)
- Basic and translational science – Topic Chair: Matthew Walker (United Kingdom)
- Pharmacotherapy – Topic Chair: Simon Shorvon (United Kingdom)
