Pain Science in Motion III

May 31 – June 2, 2019

Savona, Italy

Pain Science in Motion is an international and interdisciplinary colloquium on research methods in pain sciences. This is the third edition, which will be held in Savona (Italy), after two successful editions in Brussels and Stockholm.

The focus is on research methods in pain sciences, rather than research findings or (clinical) applications of research findings from pain science. This colloquium will provide a forum for PhD students for sharing ideas, networking, presentation of research findings, and discussion of professional issues relevant to the field of pain science. As a PhD student you will be given a unique opportunity to reflect on the research methods used and to discuss its specific value and opportunities for the field of pain research. The aims of the research colloquium are multifactorial: - to facilitate PhD research in pain sciences; - to stimulate international collaboration among PhD students from various disciplines working in the field of pain; - to provide a platform for PhD students to present their ideas and discuss methodological choices and (early) research findings; - to enable PhD students to learn from established pain researchers in the field (e.g. during their plenary lectures and); - to encourage PhD students to early on in their career argue for the value of their research. We are also very happy to announce our keynote speakers, which are world-leading experts in their field: Professor Deborah Falla, Professor Alberto Gallace, Professor Fabrizio Benedetti, Professor Robert de Bie and dr. Jessica Van Oosterwijck. You will have the opportunity to meet with them during our meet-the-expert sessions. Abstract submission (for oral and poster presentations) is open until November 15th 2018. Early bird registration until March 15th 2019.
