IWSP is an ongoing series of international meetings on seizure prediction, seizure dynamics, and seizure control founded in 2002. IWSP brings together researchers from a wide range of backgrounds including epileptology, neurosurgery, neurosciences, physics, mathematics, computer science, and engineering.
The 5th International Workshop on Seizure Prediction will take place 19-23 September 2011 in Dresden, Germany. The conference program will consist of didactic lectures that cover epilepsy-related aspects for non-epileptologists and engineering/mathematics/physics-related aspects for MDs, scientific sessions devoted to actual problems in seizure prediction, and poster sessions. The main topics of this workshop are:
- Recent approaches to seizure control
- Recent developments in signal processing of interest for seizure prediction
- Ictogenesis in complex epileptic brain networks
- Active probing of the pre-seizure state
- Non-EEG based approaches to the transition to seizures
- Microseizures and their role in the generation of clinical seizures
- What do computational models tell us about seizures, their prediction and control?
- What can animal models contribute to improve understanding of the transition to seizures?
- Impact of sleep and long-biological cycles on seizure prediction
- Cellular Nonlinear Networks: Recent Developments and Trends
- International Databases and Recent Technological Developments
There will be no contest on prediction and detection of epileptic seizures at IWSP5.
