The workshop will bring together a diverse audience with a collective wealth of knowledge and will facilitate discussions about the current state of the knowledge with respect to the sources, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of concussions. The objectives of the workshop will be to identify research gaps that currently exist in concussion research and determine future research paths that will be able to provide immediate and long-term solutions to the concussion epidemic. We also expect the workshop to facilitate the establishment of new cross-disciplinary working teams. Participants are expected to include those researching and practicing engineering, biomechanics, medicine, neuroimaging, athletic training, coaching, rehabilitation, policy and governance. The unique and key aspect of this workshop is that we are bringing together the full spectrum of disciplines to identify the critical research gaps that exist between them.
