Invitation Letter

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are happy to announce that the Institute of Clinical Neurophysiology of the University Medical Centre Ljubljana will be hosting a Course on EMG, Single Fiber EMG and Nerve Ultrasonography. It will take place in Ljubljana, 23–25 September 2011, in the series of our yearly Memorial Janez Faganel Meetings, but in addition and importantly, also part of the SiNAPSA Neuroscience Conference '11, taking place at the same time and location.

The plan is to set up a practical SFEMG course in the original style of the early years of the technique. This will mean, above all, a lot of hands-on practical exercise, at the end of which the participants would be capable of recognizing pitfalls and perform a credible study. It would be intended mainly for colleagues who already practice conventional EMG. In addition, the participants will be introduced into basics of ultrasonography of nerves. The number of participants will be limited in order to allow individualized guidance. A copy of the new edition of the book on Single Fiber Electromyography by Stålberg, Trontelj and Sanders (2010) will be available. Particularly welcome will be our young colleagues starting their career in this exciting discipline of clinical neurosciences. The participants will also have the opportunity to consult the faculty on some other topics of quantitative EMG, such as specifics of nerve and CNS conduction studies, multi-MUP analysis, etc., and other applications that in many EMG labs are not yet a routine.

Cankarjev dom, the prestigious Congress Centre of Ljubljana, situated in the midst of the city centre itself, will provide an excellent venue for our meeting. Its quality and other advantages may still be remembered by participants of the IXth European Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology in 1998 and the »Strawberry« SFEMG & QEMG Course and Conference of 2007. Ljubljana is a hospitable city offering, in spite of its small size, all the essential facilities, as well as the cultural and historical background of the capital of a prosperous and ambitious nation. It will provide a pleasant and stimulating environment for work and pleasure, as well as a starting point for a number of memorable sight-seeing tours in Slovenia.

Janez Zidar, Chairman
Jože Trontelj, Convener
