Call for Abstracts: Mitochondria, Metabolism and Heart Failure

Joint with the meeting on Diabetes and Metabolic Dysfunction

January 27—February 1, 2015 Santa Fe, New Mexico

The objectives of this meeting are: 1) To mechanistically connect the fundamental biology of metabolism and mitochondrial function with the pathogenesis of heart failure, a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the world; and 2) To increase basic understanding of metabolism and mitochondrial function using observations in cardiac muscle, a traditional platform for these studies. The ongoing convergence of the cardiac metabolism and mitochondrial biology fields provides a particularly cogent rationale for a meeting with this focus. Moreover, large gaps of knowledge exist in this area such as the precise molecular signaling that connects metabolism and energy sensing with mitochondrial function, and the roles of basic mitochondrial processes (e.g. biogenesis, fission, fusion, mitophagy, maintenance of mitochondrial genome integrity) in metabolism and heart failure. These deficiencies in fundamentally important scientific knowledge and their clinical implications for a common and lethal disease confer exceptional significance on the proposed meeting. Although a number of cardiac research meetings take place each year, most are of a very general nature or so specialized that they examine only a single process in isolation. A major innovation of the proposed meeting is its ability to examine metabolism, mitochondrial function, and heart failure in an integrated context and in the depth required to critically examine existing paradigms. A second significant innovation is to have the meeting run concurrently with one on Diabetes and Metabolic Dysfunction. This opportunity has been exploited by designing three of the morning sessions to be joint between the two meetings.

Registered attendees of one meeting in a joint pair may participate in sessions of the other, pending space availability.

This year's theme is “Countdown to Curtain: Maximizing Artistry and Injury Prevention Onstage and Behind the Scenes” and the primary learning objectives are as follows:

After participating in this Symposium, attendees will be able to improve the care of performers and advance the work of performing arts medicine as a field by:

Identifying current practices in arts and entertainment potentially leading to problems that contribute to injuries onstage and behind the scenes in performing artists of all genres

Applying emerging research and treatment options for common musculoskeletal and neurologic problems and identifying specific treatment implications for the performing arts clinician.

Incorporating wellness education and information about the potential physical risks of performance and performance production in the care of both student and professional performers.

Abstracts should directly address one or more of these learning objectives and be submitted to PAMA for review by the Symposium Program Committee. PAMA has an abstract submission system designed to make submitting abstracts more uniform. Please note that the abstract guidelines have been revised from last year to encourage a more uniform presentation of the topics to be presented.

Call for Abstracts: 3rd World Congress on Controversies, Debates and Consensus in Bone, Muscle and Joint Diseases

 April 23-26, 2015 Montreal, Canada

Deadline for submission of abstracts: Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

The 3rd World Congress on Controversies, Debates and Consensus in Bone, Muscle and Joint Diseases (BMJD) held under the auspices of the IOF and ESCEO, will take place April 23-26, 2015 in Montreal, Canada.

Over the years, the fields of bone, muscle and joint diseases have undergone enormous expansion in clinical and basic data, as well as that of field-related technology. With the problem of bone, muscle and joint diseases reaching epidemiological dimensions, treatment possibilities have digressed diversely. This development has created a need for debates and discussions on the numerous controversial issues to attain clinical conclusions.

The 3rd edition of BMJD aims to continue facilitating effective debates on unresolved clinical and therapeutic dilemmas, supported by evidence-based medicine and expert opinions resulting in agreement on timely issues. The program provides an effective forum for discussing and debating such unresolved controversies by allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussions with world authorities in the fields of Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Pain, Muscles and Joint Diseases.

The 3rd BMJD Congress will be held under the auspices of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (ESCEO), making an even greater impact on the scientific community.

Call for Abstracts: Ethics and Professionalism in Health Care. Backgrounds, Frameworks, Challenges

International conference for young scholars

9th – 13th February 2015 Institute for Medical Ethics and History of Medicine Ruhr University Bochum, Germany

Organisational, societal and ethical aspects in the transformation of health-care professions are currently the subject of intensive discussion. New forms and structures of interprofessional co-operation have been developed in a variety of fields, such as primary care, intensive-care medicine or palliative medicine. The academization of health-care professions and the emergence of new subspecialities generate a need for professional codes, legal regulations and new frameworks for health-care provision.

The interdisciplinary and international conference for young scholars aims to bring together researchers from different disciplines and fields to discuss topics regarding professionalism and interprofessionalism in health care. Contributions on the following subjects may be submitted:

• historical, ethical and societal aspects of the development of health-care professions

• transformation of health-care professions and the physician-patient relationship

• regulatory frameworks and models for interprofessional co-operation in health care

• learning and teaching medical professionalism

• interprofessional health-care education

• ethical challenges to health-care professionalism (e.g. corruption, conflicts of interest)

Young scholars (PhD students and Post Docs) from all health care-related disciplines (such as medicine, medical ethics, nursing science, public health, law, social sciences, history, and philosophy) are invited to present their research projects, to discuss them with leading experts and to contribute to the interdisciplinary discourse. In addition, all participants are invited to prepare a manuscript and to submit it for peer review and publication in a conference volume. Expenses for travel, accommodation and meals will be covered. In addition, all contributors to the book will receive a remuneration of 300 Euro.

Abstracts (approximately 250 words) along with a brief curriculum vitae may be submitted until 7th November 2014 via e-mail to Verena.Sandow@Rub.de.
