Welcome to the Summer School on Imaging in Epilepsy (SuSIE) 2018

The 4th SuSIE will take place from August 12th to 15th, 2018, again at Rauischholzhausen Castle, Marburg, Germany. Structure and content of the 2017 SuSIE will be maintained (Monday lectures, Tuesday and Wednesday workshops). However, some further developments are planned:

  • On Sunday, August 12th, two parallel scientific meetings shall take place: an MRI coil and sequence development workshop and a connectivity analysis in epilepsy workshop. In addition, Brainlab hosts an industry sponsored workshop on functional planning for epilepsy procedures. Participation is free of charge and possible independently of the SuSIE. You are welcome to contribute with session proposals, oral presentations and posters.
  • The 2018 key note lecture is given by Prof. Hugues Duffau, Neurosurgeon, Montpellier University Hospital on the topic: “Do fMRI, DTI-fiber tracking and co tell us the truth? Lessons from direct electrostimulation mapping of the brain”.
  • During the SuSIE Forum (Monday night) there will be an occasion for eastern European participants to discuss practical application of epilepsy imaging in their region. The session is led by Anna Miron, North-East Carpathian Epilepsy Center, Suceava, Romania.
  • Based on the experience with the excellently rated and therefore repeated BESA training course on electrical source analysis given by Stefan Rampp (1 lecture, followed by 3 consecutive work-shops) we now also provide a 6 hour training session for morphometric MRI-Analysis given by Prof. Huppertz (MAP18 software by H.-J. Huppertz).

We are excited to provide an environment for fruitful discussions, vivid exchange with colleagues and an inspiring key note lecture.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2018 SuSIE at wonderful Rauischholzhausen Castle.

Jörg Wellmer and Susanne Knake
