AORecon Course: Principles of Total Hip and Knee Arthroplasty is organized by AO Foundation and will be held from Sep 20 - 21, 2019 at Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Central Slovenia, Slovenia. Target Audience: This course is targeted at newly certified orthopedic surgeons and advanced orthopedic surgical trainees The goal of the Event: The AORecon Course-Principles of Total Hip and Knee Arthroplasty teaches fundamental principles and current concepts in the treatment of patients with a need for primary arthroplasty in the hip and knee. This course is the initial step along the path of lifelong learning in the area of joint arthroplasty. Based on a patient-centered approach this course focuses on the key principles of primary arthroplasty. Description: This course is modular in structure and highly interactive. Short, evidence-based lectures cover the key information required. Moderated case discussions in small groups will expand on each topic and help participants to develop decision-making and surgical management skills. Participants will practice templating and have the opportunity to share their experience with peers and international faculty. All factors related to achieving the best possible outcomes in primary arthroplasty will be covered. Learning Objectives: At the end of the event, the participants will be able to: • Describe a systematic assessment including clinical evaluation • Identify patient's reconstructive surgery needs • Adopt a patient-centered approach • Anticipate, recognize, and stratify potential complications • Describe and discuss safe and effective procedures for primary arthroplasty • Discuss the management of early and late problems or complications • Communicate and facilitate a multidisciplinary team-based approach • Apply best practice to optimize and document patient outcomes Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

11th EFSMA Congress of Sport Medicine is organized by Slovenian Sports Medicine Association and will be held from Oct 03 - 05, 2019 at Grand Hotel Bernardin, Portoroz, Piran, Slovenia. Description: EFSMA’s main goal is to promote and develop Sports Medicine in the whole European Continent, working expressly for the recognition of it as a primary specialty in every single EU Country. As you all know, Sports Medicine is a multidisciplinary clinical and academic specialty, which mainly deals with health protection, promotion and prevention of both elite athletes and general population practicing sports activities. This is the reason why exercise, in the right dose, could be a fundamental medicine, having the power to improve the daily life quality of everyone. With this regard, this edition of the EFSMA European Congress on Sports Medicine will be focused in particular on two fundamental pillars: the first one is the assistance to healthy young athletes and the second one is the exercise prescription for health as prevention and therapy. Main Congress Topics: • Development of elite young athlete • Medical criteria for selection in sport • Monitoring of athletes health • Prevention in sports medicine • Injury management and return to sport • Exercise prescription for prevention and therapy Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

May 25 - 27, 2020 | Free | Genetics
Variant Detection 2020: 15th International Symposium on Variants in the Genome is organized by Meeting Makers Pty Ltd and will be held from May 25 - 27, 2020 at Hotels Bernardin, Portoroz, Piran, Slovenia. Who will attend: The expected participants are all interpreting DNA variants on a regular basis, professionally, at clinical diagnostic and research labs, and generally speaking, people working with and interpreting DNA. Therefore any products or technologies for molecular genetics and diagnostic labs would be most appropriate to be showcased at this event. We are especially looking for companies to host workshops showcasing their Genome informatics tools; due to limitations in the program these are extremely limited.Course Description: The first meetings focussed on methodology developed to find mutations/variants in DNA. In the years that have passed since, we find cheaper and cheaper methods being used to do the same but more sensitively, effectively and efficiently. In addition, due to the enormous decrease in sequencing cost, methodology concentrated on one main method; sequencing. Consequently, attention and interest has shifted from detecting to evaluating variants; do they effect the health of the individual? If you want to learn from and meet world class speakers who will present the very best in human genomics related to variant detection, sequencing, and interpretation then you cannot afford to miss this conference. You will learn about sequencing technologies, variant interpretation, large projects, clinical applications, software, databases & bioinfomatics, new frontiers and more. Topics: Sequencing Technologies: • Single Cell Sequencing / Technologies • Single molecule sequencing • Long- read sequencing • Long-read RNA sequencing • Emerging or novel technolgies for variant detection • Non-SNV type of variants Variant Interpretation in Practice: • Update on ClinGen Recommendations to the ACMG-AMP system Software, Databases, Bioinformatics: • High-throughput clinical systems • ClinGen interpretation system • Artificial intelligence in data systems related to genomics • Ensembl • In-house vs commercial interpretation software • Block-chain (or other secure systems) technology for genomic/patient data storage • Variants and electronic medical records • Big data/databases/Cloud Genomics • Impact of FDA recognition of selected variant databases Applications: • Rethinking population screening & Testing Guidelines • Cancers:Colorectal & BRCA • Editing (CRISPR/CASS) • Epigenetics • Metagenomics Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
