Abstracts will be considered from all investigators doing epidemiological, basic, translational, or clinical research on any aspect of mortality in epilepsy. All accepted abstracts will be presented as posters at the PAME meeting and must follow the AES Annual Meeting policies including authors, length, and abstract submission fees (AES Abstract Submission Guidelines).
