Dear Distinguished Colleagues,
On behalf of Academy members, Congress organizers, and sponsors, it is our honor and pleasure to invite you to the 8th Annual International Congress of the Academy for Multidisciplinary Neurotraumatology (AMN). Burlington, Vermont USA welcomes you from May 18-21, 2010 to share research, best practices, and experiences in Traumatic Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury care. You are invited to submit abstracts online or by email focused on our theme:


Child, adolescent, and young adult victims of accidents, violence, and war.


What a relevant topic for these times as the youngest among us—along with families, friends, and advocates, cope with brain and spinal cord trauma. In our Congress, we unite around a common belief that only together—across miles and cultures, we discover new ways to improve the lives of those impacted by traumatic brain (TBI) and spinal cord injuries (SCI).
We invite allied professionals from medical and non-medical disciplines to participate fully in workshops and the scientific program. On Tuesday, pre-Congress workshops address sports concussions and related academic considerations. The main scientific events (Wednesday to Friday) will be held in a variety of formats—lectures, round table discussions, and slide presentations with discussions—led by top experts. The curriculum includes sections on Innovative Technology, Education, Spinal Cord Injury and Community Integration, Crime Victimization, Rehabilitation and the Fine Arts (including Music Therapy), and Professional Development.
On Wednesday evening, we host the international release of an elegant, cathartic film inspired by the 2006 tragedy in the Amish community of Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania.
Explore the region and taking advantage of what Vermont offers on your own or with a guided tour. Downtown Burlington, lined with small shops and fine eateries, is a ten-minute walk away.
AMN invites you to share your work and vision of what the world might be. See you in Vermont!


Sincerely,


David W. Mulholland, 2010 International Congress President & AMN Executive Director
Wen-Ta Chiu, AMN President
Klaus von Wild, AMN Secretary General
