Loire Valley Conferences Luring Ergonomists to France

Eight keynotes are part of the PREMUS 2010 program, which begins with pre-conference workshops Aug. 29 and is being held in conjunction with WDPI 2010.

The seventh PREMUS conference beginning Aug. 29 in Angers, France, will be one of the largest in the 18-year series, with several well-known U.S. ergonomists delivering presentations. This International Scientific Conference on Prevention of Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders, which last was held in 2007 in Boston, is being held Aug. 29-Sept. 2 in conjunction with WDPI 2010, the First Scientific Conference on Work Disability Prevention and Integration, taking place Sept. 2-3. Organizers say PREMUS 2010 will have more than 500 attendees and more than 370 presenters from 37 countries.

Angers is a historic city located in the Loire Valley, with Paris only 90 minutes away by TGV train.

The PREMUS opening session will take place Aug. 30. Keynote speakers during the conference will include Americans Ben Amick, Barbara Silverstein, and David Rempel; International Ergonomics Association Fellow François Daniellou of France; Philippe Mairiaux of the University of Liege (Belgium); Gisela Sjogaard of Denmark; and Eira Viikari-Juntura of the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health.

The Scandinavian Journal of Work and Environmental Medicine is sponsoring a competition for the best paper presented at this PREMUS.

WDPI's keynote presentations and scientific papers concern the prevention of work disability and how to promote safe and sustained return to work.
