High-Quality, Vetted Content Delivered by Global Pain Experts



The IASP 2021 World Congress Scientific Program Committee works tirelessly to provide attendees with the latest and greatest research, methodologies, and clinical practices in the pain field. Speakers and presenters from around the globe offer attendees the chance to learn through a variety of different formats including lectures, posters, or hands-on settings. This diverse program offers something for everyone, no matter your specialty, discipline, or career level. All scientific program content is vetted and peer-reviewed.

I like the balance between clinical and doesn’t matter if one of your [colleagues is] more into neuroscience and you’re more into psychological aspects of pain, you can all go off into different talks and then come together.

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.

Sushma Bhatnagar, MD All India Institute of Medical Sciences | India

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.
