2021 Annual Scientific Meeting

call for Late breaking Poster Abstracts: open

We’re excited to announce our first fully virtual CPS Annual Scientific Meeting for April 27-30 2021!

Many factors have gone into this decision. Yes, the uncertainty concerning how the next year will unfold is high on our list, but we are also excited that this new event creates an exceptional opportunity for us to bring our community together, from all regions of the country, and around the world.

Having consulted with those inside and outside the Society, our Scientific Program Committee (SPC) firmly believes that coming together in a virtual setting will expand the opportunity for all participants -- scientists, healthcare professionals, trainees and people with lived experience of pain -- to meet and exchange up-to-date information on pain mechanisms, assessment, and management. The SPC will offer a balanced, diverse, and cutting-edge scientific program that reflects different areas of science from the pain community.

Your participation is integral for the success of our ASM, and the continued progress of pain research, education and management. 

We will be sending out regular updates as we build our program and virtual event.
