Over the past several years, AER has been busy hosting two
international conferences and completing the documentary, It Is
Epilepsy: The Challenges & Promises of Automated Seizure Control.
A text book will be published from the proceedings of the
conferences and several papers have been published in peer reviewed
journals. See below for more information.

International Workshop on Seizure Prediction
In June 2009 AER hosted the Fourth International Workshop on
Seizure Prediction (IWSP4) in Kansas City, Missouri. 154
researchers from around the world attended the four-day conference
and shared their progress and ideas on seizure prediction,
generation and control. Details are available at the IWSP4
The book, "Epilepsy: The Intersection of Neurosciences, Biology,
Mathematics, Engineering and Physics," will be released in Spring

Three papers from the IWSP4 proceeding were accepted
for publication in the journal, "Epilepsy and Behavior." They
Seizure prediction: The
Fourth International Workshop
epilepsy: Debates held during the Fourth International Workshop on
Patient and Caregiver Perspectives on Seizure Prediction
In addition, a summary of the workshop was published
in the journal of the Deutschen Gesellschaft für Epileptologie,
which is the professional organization for epilepsy in Germany.
Nocturnal Frontal Lobe Epilepsy: An Interdisciplinary Perspective
As an extension of IWSP4, a two-day seminar on "Nocturnal Frontal
Lobe Epilepsy (NFLE): An Interdisciplinary Perspective" was held in
Sanibel Island, Florida in February 2010. 14 experts from the
U. S., Canada and Europe met to discuss NFLE and the potential of
NFLE as a model for seizure prediction. Many of the
proceedings from this seminar will be included in the text book
being published -
