Dear Friends & Colleagues,


The World Institute of Pain (WIP) has chosen New York as the venue for its 8th World Congress. New York, the heart of the USA, proved in 2009 to be highly accessible to WIP's Congress participants. We look forward to delivering a dynamic educational program that fulfills the standards of scholarly excellence that our global network of pain professionals expect from WIP.

Through your support of the WIP World Congress, we truly realize our mission of bringing together the most recognized experts in the field of pain medicine throughout the world for the advancement and standardization of interventional pain practice and achievement of improved standards of care.

WIP's combined focus on participant-friendly yet intense educational activities has led to the development of novel interventional techniques for the management of pain. Concurrently, we have fostered consensus building amongst pain experts on the effectiveness of existing techniques and on avenues for further improvements in therapeutic performances. This is your chance to exchange knowledge and experiences with true pioneers of pain medicine from all over the world.

The Scientific Program Committee, Chaired by James P. Rathmell (USA), is preparing a dynamic program encompassing state-of-the-art, evidence-based, and best-practice-based Pain Medicine.

As always, New York's cultural opportunities, unique style, and iconic architecture create a dynamic and memorable experience.

We look forward to welcoming you to New York in 2016 for a very special pain conference - the 8th World Congress of the World Institute of Pain.
