The World Congress on Pain provides a state-of-the-art overview of a wide range of topics in pain research and treatment. It offers networking opportunities with thousands of the world’s leading experts who are eager to share their thoughts, research, and findings. Whether you are a trainee entering the field, a clinician interested in updating your knowledge, or a researcher announcing promising new results, you will discover new information in plenary sessions, refresher courses, topical workshops, and poster sessions that define the cutting edge of pain research and treatment.
The Scientific Program Committee for the 16th World Congress on Pain are planning a full scientific program consisting of a variety of sessions designed to benefit those just entering the field of pain research and treatment and those interested in updating their skills and knowledge of promising research and treatment possibilities.
A Call for Proposals for Plenary Lecture Topics, Topical Workshops, and Satellite Symposia will be issued in May 2015. Click here for more information.
