Dear colleague,

we cordially invite you and your co-workers to attend and participate in the 7 th World Congress on Trauma, Shock, Inflammation and Sepsis – TSIS 2007 – to be held in Munich, Germany on March 13 th-17 th, 2007.

The wide array of conference topics will include all major aspects of cell and molecular biology, clinical pathophysiology, pharmacology, monitoring and imaging, intensive care and therapeutic approaches within the congress theme. For this master class conference we will be gathering together basic scientists as well as clinicians and intensivists from around the world and will provide an enormous platform for the presentation and discussion of the most recent advances in medical science. This congress will, as our previous conferences, set the stage for what can be accomplished during the next years to come.

The central program complex of TSIS 2007 is entitled: Interdisciplinary Summit on Inflammation.

The last few years have seen a revolution in our understanding of inflammation – of how blood and tissue cells interact and of the intracellular mechanisms controlling their activation. This has not only provided multiple targets for potential anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory therapy, but has also revealed the underlying inflammatory pathology of many diseases. Thus, during TSIS 2007, all major disease entities in which inflammatory processes play a central role shall be discussed. Symposia will be organized on the following subjects: Mechanical and burn trauma,shock and reperfusion, transplantation, infection and sepsis – representing acute inflammation.

Also most importantly, our current understanding of the initiators, drivers and resolvers of sub-clinical chronic inflammatory diseases – metabolic syndrome, diabetes, atherosclerosis, autoimmunity (vasculitis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic inflammatory bowel disease), neuropathies, and Alzheimer’s disease shall be comparatively analyzed. Particularly, the panels will discuss the validity of the danger signal theory and associated molecular patterns of endokines and alarmins representing the potential common denominator of the initiating processes of inflammation.

TSIS 2007 also provides the ideal venue to learn about the promise and limitations of genetics, genomics and proteomics in inflammation research as well to get introduced to new frontiers of the detection of acute and chronic organ dysfunction via molecular imaging.

We welcome the submission of abstracts with innovative research work to the program as oral- or poster presentations. We particularly encourage young researchers to present their recent scientific work. There will be the young investigator award competition – the Arthur E. Baue Award will then be given to the best of 10 Abstracts submitted to TSIS 2007.

Around 100 program segments, equally distributed between basic cell biology and pathophysiology topics and a wide array of more clinically oriented subjects have been chosen by the scientific committee to be covered in plenary lectures, mini symposia, free communication sessions, poster discussions as well as ,,hands on”-workshops. From this will come progress and better care of patients.

As in our previous conferences we will again provide a superb social activities program for the delegates and their accompanying friends during all days of the congress: we invite you to the Lord Major’s reception at the old Town Hall of Munich, to a roaring evening of Music and EntertainmentClassic meets Pop – at the conference premises, futheron there will be an early morning 5-km-run, while finally on the last congress night a Gala Dinner with a wonderful live musicprogramme will be hosted.

We kindly invite you to attend TSIS 2007 and sense the unique beauty and the attractivity of Munich, the Bavarian capital, one of the most beautiful cities of Western Europe offering cultural wealth as well as warm-hearted hospitality.

We look forward to your participation, we promise an unforgettable congress.
