Dear Colleagues

It is our sincere pleasure to invite you to join the 6th London-Innsbruck Colloquium on Status Epilepticus and Acute Seizures, which will be held 6th to 8th April 2017 in the beautiful city of Salzburg in Austria.

These meetings have taken place biennially since 2007, and have become an important feature of the epilepsy calendar. The 6th Colloquium will focus on the experimental and clinical nature of status epilepticus, including neuroimaging and neurophysiology and novel aspects of its treatment. It is our intention over the 3 days of the conference to have intensive and interactive discussion on the cutting edge of research and clinical practice in the field of Status Epilepticus. We hope to feature current basic and clinical research and to provide up-to-date reviews of the field. The aim of the meeting is to stimulate thought and discussion, and to lead to improvements in the treatment and outcome of this condition.

We have deliberately left space in the programme for the audience to question and to challenge - for we believe, as a fundamental pillar of the Colloquia, that academic debate is at the heart of all learning and discovery. We hope you will all join in this endeavour and contribute to what we hope will be a lively and instructive meeting.

Salzburg is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities also known as the birthplace of W.A. Mozart.  The city is not only very scenic, but of great cultural and historical importance, too. The convention centre is located in the middle of the city and accommodation will be within walking distance. There is also easy access to public transport, which takes you to interesting places in the outskirts, the surrounding mountains and the Lake District within 20 minutes. The unique program will give you the chance to meet your colleagues and friends in a casual atmosphere and bring you close to the characteristic Salzburg lifestyle and hospitality.

We look forward to meeting you in Salzburg!
