Abstract : Welcome to the Second World Congress on Wilderness Medicine! This congress is presented by the Wilderness Medical Society in association with the International Society for Mountain Medicine and the International Society of Travel Medicine. You are about to in an exciting event that will happen only once every four years and has only happened once before. For the first time, we have affiliated with two preeminent scientific societies whose interests are closely allied to those of the Wilderness Medical Society. We have done our best to respond to requests of our members. We have planned a shorter, more concentrated meeting, but we are still offering the most workshops ever offered at a wilderness medicine conference, including our own previous annual meetings. Although we have emphasized mountain medicine and adventure travel, we have tried to cover a wide range of wilderness topics with an international emphasis. The evening programs should compliment the daytime medical sessions. We especially encourage all who are interested to attend the open forums which will be given as afternoon workshop sessions on search and rescue, wilderness medicine education of the public, and the feasibility of on-going efforts among organizations.
