Here is the link to the ILADS website, but if the MedHelp bot wipes it out, just go to the ILADS [dot] org website and look for the 2011 conference in Toronto.  I am guessing there may be recorded videos accessible online after the program as well, but don't know.

Hang in there, everybody.  These are the good guys working diligently to figure out and hammer Lyme into the ground.  Yippee!

Update on the program --

The livestreaming technology was not terribly effective, but I found the program very worthwhile, at least the parts I saw -- had to dash in and out, so missed chunks of it.

Some of it went by very fast, since it's pitched at medical people, but it was encouraging to hear these accomplished and interesting people take such a positive approach to the problem of tickborne disease.  It was like listening to a room full of smart friends talk about a topic that means a lot to me personally -- it was reassuring.

The complexity of Lyme & Co. is still being unravelled, and these are the docs who are doing that.  The other half of the program will livestream tomorrow.  I don't know what provisions they have made to allow access to the recordings after the conference is over, but I hope they are available.  In particular, Burrascano's presentation was not broadcast today due to technical problems, and I hope it's on line later.

and PS, the schedule posted up above didn't match the program today in many ways, so I don't know if it will tomorrow either.

Hi Jackie ,, I tried to listen in last night and I didn't get very far. I couldn't locate any more of the program. I think I saw just 30 secs. worth of Doc. Jones. I will try to check it out again tonight.

I had to go via UStream and only got to see bits and pieces up to Dr. Horowittz who was brilliant. The second day was blank, no stream. I hope there will be a PDF on it.

Yesterday there was a sign up box on the ILADS website to be notified when the first day's videos would be available online since there were so many tech glitches, so you might want to sign up for that at least.  Whether the second day's videos will also be available is unclear to me, tho there were some glitches there too.

The whole event (or parts of it if you prefer) with backup documents/articles can be bought on CD etc. at the ILADS website, but it's not cheap.  After a while, perhaps the price will drop, dunno.

As happens at many of these events, the presentations varied in quality, but all that I saw were interesting.  The video set up was not well thought out -- the camera focussed on the speaker's face, and the slides projected with the presentation outline were not visible, tho the speakers naturally referred to them.  One presenter had temporarily lost his laptop at airport security, and he surmised that in an effort to figure out who the computer belonged to, security accidentally (!) deleted his entire presentation, so he was winging it -- but interesting nevertheless.

Another presenter, the legendary Charles Ray Jones MD, was heard but not seen for the first portion of his talk, because the camera was focused elsewhere.  

But with all these faults, it was still worth watching.  I missed the Horowitz talk mentioned by Phartist but will try to locate it.
