One Week to March 12 Deadlines for Poster Abstracts and Financial Aid for World Congress
With less than one week until the March 12 deadline for 2018 poster abstracts, organizers of the World Congress on PainSeptember 12-16 in Boston are encouraging clinicians, educators, trainees, researchers, and other professionals in the pain science community to submit their best work for possible presentation at the largest pain conference on the planet.
Past World Congress poster sessions have offered a wide diversity of state-of-the-art research, techniques, ideas, and innovations, including the following:
Think you can’t afford to attend the conference? If you are an IASP member, you have already met one key qualification of financial aid. Trainees, as well as pain professionals and trainees in 42 listed low-resource nations, are especially encouraged to apply.
IASP considers multidisciplinary inclusion and global dissemination of the latest pain science as core to its mission. In 2018, it added US$100,000 to its already-generous financial aid budget of US$250,000 to help ensure pain practitioners and others in the health care community could join the expected gathering of 7,000 attendees. Of the 550-plus applications for financial aid to the last World Congress in 2016, almost half were funded. Careful adherence to eligibility requirements and application guidelines will optimize the chance of funding success. Applications are due MONDAY, MARCH 12.
Even without financial aid, current early registration pricesoffer significant discounts to IASP members, to IASP member/nonmember trainees, and for early registration before May 21. In addition, European-based pain professionals and trainees should consider registering quickly to take advantage of favorable exchange rates. Register today!
