Barcelona, Spain
Chair(s): Chris Dulla, PhD, Jeff Noebels, MD, PhD, Melanie McNally, MD, and Wes Clawson, PhD

This conference has been rescheduled for 2022. Please see this notice from GRC:

As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings.  Since safety of our attendees is always GRC’s highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw the Mechanisms of Epilepsy and Neuronal Synchronization GRC / GRS and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of conference communities like yours who are scheduled to meet in this timeframe. We will keep you informed as we have more information about the new conference dates and location.

We have a process in place to address all aspects of follow up due to this withdrawal:

1.    GRC will provide full reimbursement of conferee registration fees within the next few weeks.

2.    GRC has provided an official notice attached to this e-mail of the meeting’s withdrawal on GRC letterhead for your records and for use in sending to airlines to request refunds or credits. Most airlines have offered withdrawal fee waivers or credits due to the travel concerns and quarantines in effect.

3.    GRC will post a notification on the GRC website that this conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 schedule and will be rescheduled in 2022. The 2022 conference schedule will be posted by the end of December of this year.

4.    The current chair(s) and vice-chair(s) will remain in place and run the conference in 2022. Applications for 2022 meetings will open at the end of December of this year and you can reapply to the conference at that time.

We are grateful for your understanding and support, and hope that you will be able to attend a GRC in the future.
