The 2015 Epilepsy meeng sees a historic collaboraon with the 12th Internaonal meeng of the Society of Neurosciensts of Africa (SONA) and will precede Africa's premier neuroscience conference. This will provide the ideal pla7orm for cross‐pollinaon of clinicians (paediatric neurologists, neurologists, psychiatrists and neuro‐technologists) with basic neurosciensts from across Africa and abroad, to showcase advances in the field of Epilepsy.
