The IOC World Conference on Prevention of Injury and Illness in Sport will be held from 7 to 9 April 2011 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Recognised scientists and practitioners from the medical and sports worlds will share their latest findings through keynote lectures, symposia, workshops and interactive dialogue sessions. The objective is to transfer academic knowledge to the field of play in order to minimise risk factors in sport and maximise safe sports participation.
