I am happy to inform you about the Fifth International Meeting of The Special Interest Group on Neuropathic Pain (NeuPSIG) of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) which will take place in Nice (Côte d'Azur, FRANCE), on May 14-17, 2015.
Held in Europe and North America, the first four NeuPSIG congresses have gathered more than 5000 interacting delegates representing the five continents.
Over the course of the years we have witnessed many innovative developments in basic science and clinical applications in the field of neuropathic pain. Recent advances in pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, assessment, prevention and management of neuropathic pain will be addressed by world-renowned experts at the Congress. The scientific program will consist of plenary sessions, topical workshops, debates and poster presentations. For the first time we will not only have training sessions for medical doctors, but also students, nurses and physiotherapists. This program is designed to fulfill the continuous aims of NeuPSIG which are "to advance the understanding of mechanisms, assessment, prevention and treatment of neuropathic pain".
This fifth congress in the series will be an important event for basic and clinical scientists as well as practicing healthcare workers from diverse fields of pain management with an interest in furthering the understanding and care of patients with neuropathic pain. With more than 1000 expected international delegates the NeuPSIG 2015 congress, in collaboration with the French Pain Society (IASP French Chapter) is a unique opportunity to network , strengthen international collaboration and enjoy an interesting and exciting scientific program.
Offering a superb location and multicultural facets, Nice has become a prime destination for prestigious international events, making NeuPSIG 2015 an event not to be missed.
My colleagues and I look forward to welcoming you to Nice and to a very successful Congress.
Chair, Scientific Program Committee
