BEMS Winter Workshop	February 3, 2006
Exploring the Boundaries of Electromagnetic Field
Intervention Techniques
The Embassy Suites Hotel, 4400 S. Rural Road, Tempe, Arizona 85282
(Reservations 1-480-897-7444 or 1-800-362-2779)

It is usual, when "EM fields" and "Intervention" are used together, to
automatically think "Non Lethal Intervention" and, while non lethal
intervention (NLI) might bring to mind only visions of anti-personnel
devices, it is the suggestion of this workshop that such a vision is
not sufficiently broad. Electromagnetic fields from DC to light and
beyond are being used in a variety of ways to intervene in targeted
life processes with the goal of moving single cells, cell systems and
entire organisms in some desired direction. In some cases, the goal is
to encourage cells to grow (e.g., moving bone cells to return to a
growth mode to accomplish the knitting of a non-union bone fracture)
while in others the goal is to slow or even kill cells (e.g.,
increasing the effectiveness of an antibiotic against a bacterial
biofilm or increasing apoptosis in carcinoma cells). NLI does, as
well, include the use of EM fields in anti-personnel devices.

The emphasis of the BEMS winter workshop is on discussion and
feedback. The time schedule includes presentations by excellent
speakers with topics that cover intervention at the cellular level up
to whole body intervention. There are also specifically designated
discussion periods. The idea is to present current and even potential
NLI in the broadest sense and to encourage audience participation via
questions and open discussion. The challenge to the audience will be
to review their own thoughts and positions, to listen to the
presentations and to make an effort to take part in the discussions
that will follow the presentation by each speaker.

The morning speakers will present some of the newest EMF intervention
at the cell level and what this research might mean to clinical
applications in the coming years plus there will be a presentation
that will address some of the social implications of NLI at the whole
body level. In the afternoon, the opening session will be the panel
leading the discussion and interaction from the audience. The material
from the morning sessions will still be fresh in everyone's mind and
it is hoped that even though the morning discussions may have covered
some of the questions and comments, the audience will also be aware
that the presentations coming up in the afternoon will have additional
material about "traditional" NLI. Anti-personnel NLI presents not only
scientific and research issues, it also presents complex social
issues. Again, since discussion and feedback is the emphasis of the
winter workshop, the audience will be challenged to make the effort to
involve themselves in the initial afternoon discussion as well as the
discussions following the presentations by the speakers. This is meant
to be a true workshop with the presenters setting the stage but with
the attendees exploring the boundaries and learning by inquiry and
discussion.

DoD Draft Non-Lethal Weapons Policy, July 21, 1994.

[...]

The term "adversary" is used above in it broadest sense, including
those who are not declared enemies but who are engaged in
activities we wish to stop. This policy does not preclude legally
authorized domestic use of non-lethal weapons by U.S. military
forces in support of law enforcement.
