3 Dear Colleagues, Yukio Fukuyama, MD Chairperson, Board of Councils, Infantile Seizure Society Child Neurology Institute, Tokyo, Japan Epilepsies in early life are a distinct clinical group which has different characteristic features contrasting to those in adult population. Their incidence is quite high; they give serious impact on sound development of the sufferers in future. Early diagnosis, proper treatment, and hopefully prevention of these conditions are a pressing obligation of all professionals who engage in child health care. The Infantile Seizure Society (ISS) is an international academic organization which dedicates its entire activity to meet with the demand abovementioned, by facilitating researches on seizure problems in this particular age. With this specific aim dealing with the specific target, the ISS has organized International Symposia on various specific topics once a year, consecutively since 1998 (except for 2011, when a devastating earthquake hit Japan). Each Symposium had been significant and gained a high international reputation. It is our uppermost honor and pleasure to announce here that International Symposium on Epileptic Syndromes of Infancy and Early Childhood (ISES) will be organized by Professor Haluk Topalo lu and his knowledgeable colleagues in Cappadocia, in The main theme represents an imperative subject for everybody who engages in child health care, pediatric epileptologists in particular. We sincerely wish to invite you to participate in the ISES, Cappadocia, 2014, coming from all corners of the globe. Best wishes, Yukio Fukuyama, MD Chairperson, Board of Councils, Infantile Seizure Society Child Neurology Institute, Tokyo, Japan
