Kuopio epilepsy symposium 2024

We cordially welcome you to the Kuopio Epilepsy Symposium!

On behalf of the Organizers, we cordially welcome you to participate in the Kuopio Epilepsy Symposium, which will take place on March 13-15, 2024 in Kuopio City Theatre, Kuopio, Finland.

The symposium will be the 10th in a series of epilepsy meetings organized jointly by the Finnish Epilepsy Society, the Finnish Association of Pediatric Neurology, the Finnish Epilepsy Association, the Brain Research Unit (University of Eastern Filand) and Kuopio Eplepsycenter (Wellbeing services county of North Savo), an EpiCARE ERN member.

We hope to bring together people working in the different fields of epileptology and to update our understanding especially of rare and complex epilepsies. In addition, the symposium serves as the platform for the YES-ILAE activity for young doctors and researchers. We will be holding an abstract competition.

We warmly welcome you to the symposium and hope you will enjoy your stay with us.
