Call for abstract

The Scientific Committee cordially invites all PhD students within the pain field to submit their abstracts.  

This colloquium will provide a forum for PhD students for sharing ideas, networking, presentation of research findings, and discussion of professional issues relevant to the field of pain science.  As a PhD student you will be given a unique opportunity to reflect on the research methods used and to discuss its specific value and opportunities for the field of pain research.

If you do not have any results yet, we welcome you to present your ideas and research design with your peers. In fact, that might be a unique chance to receive valuable input on your study design!

Each PhD student is allowed to submit a maximum of two abstracts.
