Be an IASP Champion! Did you know that more than half of IASP members first join after a current IASP member encourages them to do so? If you have recommended that a colleague or student join – thank you. The best way to make IASP the organization you want it to be is by championing it to others in the field. When a new member joins and enters the name of the referring IASP member, we will add that person to our new IASP Hall of Champions. So far eight IASP Champions are listed! Already referred someone? Tweet us at @IASPPAIN with #IASPChampion.


Proposals for World Congress Satellite Symposia Open on August 14
Satellite Symposia allow in-depth multidisciplinary presentations and discussions on a specific area of research or educational topic. Any IASP member may propose a symposium.
