The 2021 World Congress on Pain will now be a virtual experience, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our primary objective for cancelling the in-person event is the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, industry partners, staff, and their families.

Option A. Transfer your Registration to the IASP 2022 Congress
The next World Congress on Pain, will be held 19-23 September 2022 in Toronto, Canada. Full Congress registration will be guaranteed at the rate already paid. If 2022 registration fees are lower, IASP will refund the difference. Request Registration Transfer.

It’s the biggest conference on pain management. It’s good for networking, the posters are very interesting, and you have great speakers for the plenaries…The speakers are very inspiring.

I have attended many pain conferences all over the world, but this is the one organization which I have liked since the beginning...there is an extremely good culture that is truly multidisciplinary...I have not missed any conference of IASP in the past 15 years.

For people that are researching pain, this is the place to be. There are just so many topics that are covered and that are directly related to pain research…it’s just a bombardment of content and information…it’s definitely worthwhile.

Jastrow Canlas, PhD Trainee, Flinders University | Australia

The international component of the conference is one of the best things about being here...I get exposed to research that I wouldn’t have ever before…I always take away something.
