ISPP 2017, Malaysia, 6th – 9th July

ISPP to be held in Asia for the first time!

Mark your diaries! The 11th International Symposium on Pediatric Pain (ISPP) will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This is the first time that the ISPP will be held in Asia, and it’s a great opportunity for SIG members and others interested in pediatric pain to visit this part of the world. Do plan a holiday either before or after the conference.

The Local Organising Committee, led by co-chairs Dr Mary Cardosa, a pain specialist, and Dr Sushila Sivasubraniam, a pediatric anaesthesiologist, is working to ensure that the meeting is successful. Those of you who have attended previous ISPPs will know that the scientific content is always superb, and the local organisers are planning a great social program to complement the scientific program.

Dr Liesbet Goubert from Belgium has been appointed as the Scientific Program Committee (SPC) chair. The distinguished members of the SPC are listed here. The deadline for proposals for workshops / symposia will be 15th August 2016 – watch out for the call for submissions!
