A core objective of this meeting is to focus the International
Seizure Prediction Group (ISPG) on engineering a better
understanding of underlying physiological mechanisms as they
specifically relate to clinical recordings, and a better insight
into how to OBSERVE these mechanisms and their associated dynamics.
We envision that the talks themselves will be organized into three
• Basic Mechanisms in Epilepsy
• Observation of pre-seizure and seizure initiation mechanism
• Engineering Observation and Intervention Systems for Epilepsy.
We invite all participants to submit abstracts. A number
of contributed abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations at the
conference, although a majority will be selected for poster
presentations. In addition to the formal poster session Wednesday
evening, the posters will be displayed in the conference area
throughout the meeting, and available for informal discussion during
meals and breaks.
Furthermore, we are arranging for a special issue on seizure
prediction to be published in the Journal of Clinical
Neurophysiology (journals.lww.com/clinicalneurophys/). This will
include approximately three review articles, penned by the
organizers reviewing the core elements presented. All participants
are invited to contribute research articles targeted to be published
in this issue. Such contributions are submitted directly to the
journal, and are subject to the journal’s standard peer-review
process. Please plan accordingly. Contribution instructions are
posted at http://www.editorialmanager.com/jcnp/. Note that our
plan is for this issue to appear in spring of 2014, so contributed
submissions should be targeted for early Fall 2013!
