ES scientific meeting

Drasko Cvijovic
I must say I am too busy these days, but I am trying at least to glance over all the Esens messages, and I don't remember I have seen this. Sorry if posting something already seen...
By the way, I would probably try to assemble a paper and participate, it's less than thousand kilometers from me...



The International Seminar and Working Group Meeting on EMF Hypersensitivity will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from Monday 25th to Wednesday 27th October 2004. The meeting will comprise a 2-day international meeting, open to all persons who would like to contribute or attend, followed by a 1-day working group meeting to prepare a report summarizing current scientific understanding of this syndrome and the discussions at the international meeting.

Purpose of the meeting
Sensitivity to EMF has been given the general name "Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity" or EHS. It comprises nervous system symptoms like headache, fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances, skin symptoms like prickling, burning sensations and rashes, pain and ache in muscles and many other health problems. Whatever its cause, EHS is a real and sometimes a disabling problem for the affected persons, while the level of EMF in their neighbourhood is usually no greater than is encountered in normal living environments. Their exposures are generally several orders of magnitude under the limits in internationally accepted standards. The aim of the conference is to review current state of knowledge and opinions of the conference participants and propose ways forward on this issue.
