29th International Epilepsy Congress

The 29th International Epilepsy Congress will be held from 28th August to 1st September 2011 in Rome, Italy.

Continuing on from the 2009 celebration in Budapest marking the ILAE Centenary, the 29th IEC will honour and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the International Bureau for Epilepsy and the Jubilee Year of its foundation. To mark this historic event, the Scientific Advisory & Organising Committee (SAOC) is constructing a programme of great promise. Topics will explore and integrate the scientific and social aspects of the issues faced by physicians, carers, persons with epilepsy and by all others involved in the field of epilepsy. These topics include ‘When do we consider epilepsy cured?’, ‘Impaired consciousness in epilepsy’, ‘Epilepsy during puberty – the wonder years’, ‘Older, slowing down and seizing up – epilepsy strikes again’, ‘Predicting the unpredictable: the adverse effects of treatments’, ‘Challenges in developing a new approach for classification in epilepsy’ and ‘Avoiding epilepsy deaths’, which will be addressed in the Presidential Symposium. In addition, special activities will be organised to celebrate the Jubilee Year of IBE, such as a photo competition, a book of greetings, details of the history of IBE and other special Jubilee events.
