Special symposia include the Chairs’ symposium, which this year is dedicated to “Prevention in Epileptology”. The symposium will explore a number of important aspects of prevention ranging from prevention of the development of epilepsy to prevention of the devastating consequences of epilepsy and its treatment.

A second special symposium will update delegates on the achievements of the joint ILAE/IBE Task Force, Epilepsy Advocacy Europe, under the symposium title: “ A political agenda for supporting epilepsy care and research in Europe.

The ILAE Commission on European Affairs (CEA) will also present a special symposium on the European perspective of regulatory issues with antiepileptic drugs.

Another special symposium explores the borderland between epileptology and sleep medicine. This session on “Epileptic and non-epileptic sleep related paroxysmal motor events” is a collaboration between CEA and the European Sleep Research Society. 

Chairs Symposium:
Prevention in epileptology 
Monday 30th June - from 9.00 to 11.00
Prevention is a priority in health care today and epilepsy should be no exception. The 11th ECE Chairs’ Symposium is therefore dedicated to Prevention in epileptology. The symposium will explore prevention in its broadest sense. The first lectures will discuss the potential for prevention of epileptogenesis based on experimental as well as clinical data. The second part of the symposium will focus on aspects of prevention for people with established epilepsy, including prevention of adverse effects of treatment, prevention of the most devastating consequences of epilepsy, and prevention of adverse effects imposed by society, e.g. stigma
