Dear INS Members and Friends of the Society,

On behalf of the International Neuromodulation Society’s Scientific Committee, we are honored to present to you the scientific program of the INS 12th World Congress, which will take place at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on 6-11 June 2015.

The program, “Neuromodulation: Medicine Evolving Through Technology,”  emphasizes our field’s transformative force on the treatment of disease states – how it is approached now and how it will be in the not too distant future. Showcasing leading edge research from our colleagues in the Canadian Neuromodulation Society and from INS members around the globe, sessions on neuromodulation for pain, as well as for conditions of the neurological, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, urological and other systems are offered in this dynamic program.

The main congress format will feature plenary lectures, panel discussions, and concurrent, thematic breakout sessions, leaving ample space in the program to highlight exciting new research through oral poster presentations.

With the registration system now open, we encourage you to register and book your hotel now.

Please note:

  • Due to the Formula One Grand Prix Race taking place in Montreal on June 5-7, 2015, we highly recommend that you book your flights and finalize your accommodation as soon as possible.

  • Also, citizens of certain countries and territories need a visa to enter Canada. Visa processing times vary from country to country, so please check the Canadian Government's website and apply for a Visa, if necessary, well in advance of your trip.  Also, those traveling from outside of Canada, including the United States, will need a valid passport to enter.

Along with the members of the executive committee including Drs. Marc Russo, Fabian Piedimonte, Robert Levy, Michel Prudhomme, Ali Rezai and Konstantin Slavin, we look forward to seeing you in Montreal!
