Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the official website of the 19th International Congress of the World Muscle Society.

The WMS Congress is the premier annual international Congress on neuromuscular disorders. This year´s focus will be on Protein Aggregation, Autophagy and Proteomics, Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophies (LGMDs) and, as usual, on the Advances in Treatment of Neuromuscular Disorders.

Each day of the Symposium will be dedicated to one of the three selected topics covering clinical, myopathological, molecular, radiological and other aspects of myology. Sessions are to be composed of oral or poster presentations with guided discussions.

The Congress will be held at the academic center of Berlin, in the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus, next to the historic Charité Campus in a unique and stimulating setting. You will have the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in worldwide myology and to become acquainted with Berlin, not only from its academic point of view, but also as a city that offers exciting cultural highlights.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin in October 2014!

Werner Stenzel (Chair) & the Local Organising Committee
