Australian Pain Society 40th Annual Scientific Meeting 2020


5 - 8 April 2020 | Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart TAS

  • Free Papers & Posters - DEADLINE EXTENDED: Wednesday 6 November 2019
  • Early Bird Deadline - 19 February 2020

Having reflected at the 39th meeting, ‘on the IASP Global Year against Pain in the most Vulnerable’, 2020 will bring us more challenges ‘In the IASP Global Year for the Prevention of Pain’.

The Scientific Program Committee is thrilled to have procured three most impressive international speakers:

  • Professor John Cryan, from University College, Cork, Ireland, who’s current research focusses on the interaction between brain, gut and microbiome and how it applies to stress, psychiatric and immune-related disorders.
  • A/Professor Erin Krebs from University of Minnesota Medical School, USA. Her research addresses chronic pain and opioid analgesics.
  • Dr Janet Bultitude from the University of Bath in the UK, whose research interests are pain, attention and sensorimotor interactions, as well as neurorehabilitation, and the ‘neglect-like’ sensory system changes in complex regional pain syndrome.

They will be joined by an inspiring range of national and international speakers who will provide a veritable glance at the most complex, challenging, provocative and indeed interesting topic: Pain.

Hobart is a world-class destination with its enchanting history, picturesque harbour, rugged mountains, gourmet food and wine experiences, and trendy arts and cultural scene. Browse Salamanca, with its bustling Saturday Market, travel by ferry along the River Derwent to MONA or wander around the beautiful botanical gardens.

Hobart city will capture you with a perfect memory which, I guarantee,  you will want to revisit. We look forward to seeing you all in 2020.
