Perturbations in Epilepsy workshop
26-27 June 2023

26-27th June 2023 / Edgbaston Park Hotel 53 Edgbaston Park Road Birmingham B15 2RS


The theme of this year’s in person event is Quantifying the impact of seizure triggers.

The workshop is organised by the Centre for Systems Modelling and Quantitative Biomedicine (SMQB).

It brings together key stakeholders including patients with lived experience, clinicians and academics working at the forefront of epilepsy research, and partners from the wearables and neurotechnology industries to enable knowledge exchange and facilitate new collaborations on community-based epilepsy management.

We have an exciting line-up of keynote speakers giving talks across three thematic sessions:

  • Clinical perspectives: Neurologists and neurophysiologists sharing their perspectives about seizures and their triggers.
  • Industry perspectives: Representatives from the industry presenting solutions/devices that could help monitor seizure triggers.
  • Modelling perspectives: Academics sharing their perspectives on how this data could be included in seizure prediction and prevention.

Industry partners from UNEEG, Garmin Health and Neuronostics will be presenting solutions for monitoring the brain activity and other physiological factors such as stress levels and sleep quality.

We are also hosting a networking and poster session on June 26 from 16:30 to 18:30, giving clinicians, nurses and people with lived experience of epilepsy an opportunity to interact with researchers and industries working in this domain. To coincide with the networking event, we will also have posters from early career researchers showcasing cutting-edge research being conducted in the field of epilepsy.

The networking and poster session is free to attend and the tickets can be booked here. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/networking-poster-session-at-the-perturbations-in-epilepsy-workshop-tickets-633286174997
