SIG: Children's Hour: Big Debates Over Small Matters in Pediatric Epilepsy

7:00 AM-8:30 AM

This SIG will be in the form of a debate covering two topics that come up repeatedly in the pediatric epilepsy clinic. We shall have 2 speakers talk about the data for and against each of these topics for 12-13 minutes each. The first topic is on the role of sports in epilepsy – should Johnny be allowed to play sports if he has epilepsy? (Are there safe sports and for which epilepsy types?). The second debate will be about the role of sleep deprivation (which a lot of our

SIG: Data Science in Epilepsy: Effective Data Visualization

7:00 AM-8:30 AM
Data visualization is nothing new. In the past two decades, the newly coined term of Data Science has emerged to encompass portions of a number of overlapping fields including psychology, mathematics, engineering, computer science, statistics, and of course artificial intelligence/machine learning. Today there is more data than ever, and more advanced ways to process this data into useful information. That sounds like a good thing. The bad thing is that we can visualize this huge influx of data in an infinite set of possible representations, and a whole bunch of

SIG: Epilepsy and Aging: Medical and Surgical Outcomes in Older Adults with Epilepsy

7:00 AM-8:30 AM
As our epilepsy patients continue to age, there is a pressing need to better understand how older adults with epilepsy respond to a variety of medical and surgical treatments. In particular, despite a substantial increase in the number of older adults with drug-resistant epilepsy who are candidates for resective surgery, there is little data documenting their outcomes. In this SIG, we will discuss the risks and benefits of epilepsy surgery in older adults, including current data on seizure and cognitive outcomes. This will include concerns about co-morbidity and complication of

SIG: Ictal Semiology: Case Studies in Seizure Semiology

7:00 AM-8:30 AM

In this SIG, clinical cases are presented in videos of seizures to illustrate how seizure semiology can be used in the localization of seizure onset and routes of ictal propagation. The panel and the audience are challenged in the detailed examination of seizure semiology with 4-6 cases of typical or unusual seizures.In addition, clinical responses to cortical stimulation will be presented to further elucidate eloquent areas of the brain in relationship to seizure semiology.The audience is invited to examine the seizures and stimulation responses to form hypotheses. The faculty will

SIG: Scientific Publishing: Class IV Studies, Meta-analyses, Meta-syntheses Scope and limitations

7:00 AM-8:30 AM
National and international treatment guidelines and meta-analysis increasingly rely on formal quality appraisals of publications. We will discuss if and when there is still a role for class IV publications and how such publications should be read and used.Meta-analyses and meta-syntheses are highly ranked in the hierarchy of scientific publication, but the methodology of these methods of summarising evidence and answering research questions has important limitations and is sometimes misapplied altogether. We will discuss how authors can assess whether a topic is suitable for these methodologies and how the quality
