Event description

Description

The goal of LYES 2018 is to inspire communication and networking between young researchers and clinicians interested in epilepsy. We will bring together young people from all disciplines for a full day of talks in London on 2nd February 2018, followed by drinks and dinner at a nearby venue.

LYES is a platform for young epilepsy researchers and clinicians to present their work, get informal feedback on projects/methods from peers and, above all, an excellent networking opportunity. This is our first meeting and the format will evolve over time with feedback and suggestions from the participants.


Participation is free. Register and be part of it!

FAQs

Who can participate?

LYES 2018 is open to young people below 40 involved in epilepsy research or care. Participants above 40 are invited if they are PhD students or post-doc researchers.

Who will be presenting?

LYES is an informal platform for young researchers and clinicians to present their work. There will be no famous names at LYES 2018, just young people like you and me. All attendees are encouraged to prepare a 5-minute “lightning” talk presenting their current area of research. We have a limited number of slots available, but will try hard to accommodate most presentations.

Be part of it! LYES 2018 relies on your active participation and the meeting will be just as good as we can make it.

What do I need to do to present at LYES 2018?

During the registration process we will ask you for a short title and a description of your talk (just a couple of words, really). This will help us group the talks into meaningful topics and allocate slots. We will contact you with further details about the presentations ahead of the meeting.

Great, how can I register?

Registration is simple and free – just click the “Register” button in the top right corner. There are two types of tickets available and we encourage all participants to attend both the talks (= scientific part) and dinner/drinks (= “fun” part) of LYES 2018:

  • LYES 2018 Talks: the scientific part of the meeting, from 9am to 6pm.
  • LYES 2018 Dinner/Drinks: the social part of the meeting, we will have dinner and drinks at a nearby venue after 6pm.

Is it free, really?

Yes, registration for LYES 2018 and participation at the talks is completely free. We are still looking for sponsors to cover costs for tea/coffee and a snack-lunch.

We won’t be able to cover the costs for dinner and drinks, so please be prepared to cover your own expenses.

What about Dinner & Drinks?

The best way to end an exhausting day full of talks is to enjoy dinner and drinks together. This will be an integral part of LYES 2018 and a natural continuation of the discussions at the scientific part of the meeting. We hope to make new friends, start-up new collaborations, and have good fun.

We won’t be able to cover the costs for dinner and drinks, so please be prepared to pay for your expenses.
