Starting Friday (7-8 July 2017) in Copenhagen Denmark the “1st International Congress on Mobile Health Devices and Seizure Detection in Epilepsy” looks set to be a fascinating meeting and I only wish the program had been posted earlier as I would’ve made plans to attend.

Very unlikely there will be a livestream (as the event organisers aren’t even using Twitter etc) but I’ll add the links to the speakers etc in the below (refresh post later to see these) as it will make for some good research and background reading (especially as the meeting is being conducted in English).

Key Topics/Speakers include:

Seizure detection using intracranial EEG for closed loop system
Martha Morrell, Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, Stanford University (USA)

Seizure detection using scalp EEG
