    The Center for Sports Science and Sports Medicine Berlin warmly invites you to submit abstracts for:

    International Symposium on “Science based Prevention”
    From regeneration to prevention – A forum for interdisciplinary preventive strategies

    Date: Thursday, 30th June – Friday, 1st July 2011 (1½ days)
    Venue: Center for Sports Science and Sports Medicine Berlin (CSSB), Germany

    Host: Center for Sports Science and Sports Medicine Berlin
    G.N. Duda, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin (Congress president)
    A. Arampatzis, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Co-President)
    W.R. Taylor, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin (Co-President)
    K. Dreinhoefer, Medical Park, Humboldtmuehle Berlin (Co-President)

    Keynote Speaker Prof Annette Schavan, German Federal Minister for Education and Research

    Within the scientific community, it is widely considered that knowledge from musculoskeletal healing and medical therapies can be transferred into strategies for prevention of musculoskeletal injury and degeneration, as well as deterioration of neuromotor and cardiovascular control.
    However, the scientific evidence for such a conceptual approach is still unclear.

    To become effective, prevention strategies require an understanding of a number of relevant disciplines including kinematics/kinetics, biology/biochemistry, medicine, bio-technological sciences and patient nutrition. Here, understanding the underlying molecular processes, cellular responses and structural consequences is essential for a science based approach to effective prevention.

    (I) Remaining challenges in functional recovery: regeneration view
    (II) Biomechanical concepts in prevention
    (III) Current medical concepts for prevention
    (IV) Functional assessment as a clinical outcome
    (V) Medical based aspects in aging, nutrition and preventive technologies
    (VI) Innovative technological solutions in preventive therapies

    With a host of renowned experts in the fields of movement science, regeneration, prevention strategies & biomechanics, we are proud to announce, among others, the following confirmed presenting faculty:
