Workshop in Epilepsy Engineering

University of Surrey, Guildford campus
The goal of the workshop is to bring together clinical and technical researchers in epilepsy and to encourage cross-fertilisation. This is going to be the first Epilepsy Engineering networking meeting following an EPSRC-based collaborative research between University of Surrey and King's College Hospital, supported by the leading UK epilepsy organisation, Epilepsy Action. The workshop's scope is to disseminate the current methodology for epilepsy analysis including detection, prediction, and localisation encouraging the inter-disciplinary communication of algorithms, technologies, practical issues, clinical implications and performance evaluation.
Members of the Neuroscience, Clinical Research and Engineering Communities are encouraged to attend this highly multidisciplinary meeting. The workshop will highlight the emerging engineering innovations in epilepsy research such as for epilepsy detection and prediction through brain imaging technologies (EEG, fMRI, PET, etc.), signal processing and machine learning methodologies and will try to bridge the gap from the research lab to clinical practice.
Researchers in related areas from academia and industry are invited to participate in this meeting and submit a maximum two-page abstract. The abstracts will be peer-reviewed and the selected ones will be invited for oral and poster presentations at the meeting.
Last date for abstract submission: 11 May 2015
