Kuopio Epilepsy Symposium 2020

Kuopio Epilepsy Symposium 2020

We cordially welcome you to the Kuopio Epilepsy Symposium!
On behalf of the Finnish Epilepsy Society and the Pediatric Neurology Association, we cordially welcome you to participate in the Kuopio Epilepsy Symposium, which will take place on March 26 – 27, 2020 in Kuopio Music Centre, Kuopio, Finland.

The symposium will be the 9th in a series of epilepsy meetings organised jointly by the Finnish Epilepsy Society, the Finnish Association of Pediatric Neurology, the Finnish Epilepsy Association, the Department of Neurology (University of Eastern Finland) and  Neurocenter (Kuopio University Hospital), 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 kick-off of the YES-ILAE-Finland 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.
