A course on research in child rehabilitation and good clinical practice in collaboration with the European Academy of Childhood Disability (EACD)
A 5-full days course, practical and immersive, organized as a University of Pisa Summer School by the European Academy of Childhood Disability (EACD), with the support of the IRCCS Fondazione Stella Maris.
Target group of attenders made of maximum 32 clinicians and researchers (aged less than 35 years)) working in the disciplines related to rehabilitation of childhood disabilities with interest in performing research in this field, selected based on CV.

31st Annual meeting of the European Academy of Childhood Disability in Paris (France). The conference will take place at the conference centre of la Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie (City of Sciences and Industry) of La Villette, from May 23rd to 25th May 2019.
The 2nd Neuro-MIG Training School will be held at the Institute of Histology and Embryology at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, on December 14 – 15, 2018.
Members of Neuro-MIG COST Action and worldwide known experts will share their expertise with young colleagues by lectures and work on adult and fetal brain sampling techniques, biobanking of brain tissue, and virtual histology slide analysis of normal and brain malformation cases. Concise literature will be distributed to participants in advance.
Please find the final program as well as detailed information on registration, accomodation and travel attached.
Trainees will be asked to prepare at least one case to be discussed on related topics (antenatal/ postnatal cases along with neuroradiological/molecular/histopathological data). They should also prepare 5 slides to present the challenges they encounter in their daily work life which will also cover their home institute’s challenges. They will present, discuss and be ready to integrate the knowledge that they gained through the course to their presentation.
We are glad to announe you the 1st EPIPED-EEG Course in Bologna (Italy) to be held in March 9-13, 2019.
Child Neurologists, Pediatricians and Neurologists, even when not specialized in epilepsy, have to face new-onset potentially rare, complex or drug-resistant epilepsies. EEG and Video-EEG (VEEG) are always the first diagnostic tools with history acquisition and clinical examination. Analysis of the EEG and VEEG recordings guide both the prescription of other diagnostic investigations (neuroimaging, genetic screening) and the first treatment choices. Follow-up and treatment strategies also highly depend upon EEG and VEEG.
This 3-year cycle on interactive interpretation of EEG and VEEG patterns is developed specifically forchild neurologists, neurophysiologists and pediatricians caring for children with epilepsy.
The 2019 course includes training modules covering different aspects of the electroencephalography in pediatric focal epilepsies.
Three to four symposia will be held concurrently each morning of the four day Congress. Each symposium will be 2 hours in duration and would be expected to have a total of 3-4 speakers drawn from diverse geographic origins. A symposium is meant to be a focused session on a common theme. The format usually involves introduction and background to the discussion by the symposium chair, followed by talks from participants. The viewpoints may differ and there would be interaction between audience and participants. The symposium would end with a summary overview of the session by the chair. Proposals are invited from a proposed Chair who will be the principal organiser of the symposium, and who may have one other international co-organiser.
The 15th International Child Neurology Congress that will take place in the enchanting city of Mumbai, India, November 15-18, 2018. The theme for the Congress is “Protecting the developing brain and preventing disability”. The AOCN (Association of Child Neurology, India) is the local organizer and host of the Congress, in which Child Neurologists from all over the world will meet at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in downtown Mumbai.
