The Scientific Program Proposal Period has now closed
Dear INS Members and Friends of the Society,
I am excited to communicate our upcoming plans for the INS 12th World Congress in Montreal, Canada. Please mark your calendars and make plans to join us June 6 – 11, 2015.
We have chosen the title “Neuromodulation: Medicine Evolving Through Technology,” to emphasize our field’s transformative force on the treatment of disease states – how it is approached now and will be approached in the not too distant future. We see almost daily reports in the mainstream media of innovation in the area of neuromodulation treating not only pain, but many conditions of the cardiovascular, neurological, gastrointestinal, urological and other systems. This meeting will mark an important time for our field.
Showcasing leading edge research from our colleagues in the Canadian Neuromodulation Society and INS members around the globe, the congress in Montreal will be tremendous. We have chosen a venue that will be appreciated by both the scientifically minded and the families and friends who are looking for an enjoyable adventure. The Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel offers state-of-the art conference facilities and is central to Montreal’s cultural activities.
I encourage you to submit your scientific work, create posters, participate in debate, and find new ways to help the many patients afflicted with disease by attending and participating in this important meeting. The abstract submission deadline is January 12, 2015.
Along with the members of the executive committee including Drs. Simon Thomson, Marc Russo, Fabian Piedimonte, and Robert Levy, we wish you well. We also look forward to discussing the future of the field with you in upcoming national, regional and international meetings this year.
See you in Montreal.
