The Special Interest Group on Neuropathic Pain (NeuPSIG), of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), is proud to announce its third international meeting.
The first two NeuPSIG meetings were held in Madrid, Spain, in 2004 and in Berlin, Germany in 2007. Since then, there have been many exciting new developments in science and in patient care. Updates on present evidence-based research and medicine will be covered by world-renowned experts. There will be ample time for discussion during the workshops.
At the 2007 Berlin Congress, over 1,600 professionals from diverse fields of pain management enjoyed a stimulating scientific and social programme. We expect a similar number of participants at the Athens Congress and an equally inspiring programme.
The scientific program is designed to meet the aims of NeuPSIG, which are “to advance the understanding of mechanisms, assessment, prevention and treatment of neuropathic pain”; it will consist of plenary sessions, topical workshops and poster presentations.
This third congress in the series should yet again prove to be an important milestone for basic scientists, clinical scientists and practicing health care workers from all disciplines with an interest in furthering the understanding and care of patients with neuropathic pain.
I look forward immensely to welcoming you to historic Athens and to a very successful Congress.
