Welcome to the International congress on Structural Epilepsy & Symptomatic Seizures (STESS).

In 2019, the first edition of the congress Seizures and Stroke attracted over 130 participants from over ten countries to Gothenburg. Our meeting now returns – with a widened scope to all symptomatic and structural epilepsies. A three-day program of cutting-edge research and clinical presentations are combined with a teaching course for scientists and clinicians starting out in the field, and there are ample poster- and platform-presentation opportunities.

Join us at Wallenberg Congress Center in Gothenburg on 29-31 March 2023. Early bird registration closes on 15 january. Abstract submission deadline has been extended to 31 December.
