A few words from the
Local Organizing Committee
The fourth Pain Science in Motion congress will be hosted in the wonderful city of Maastricht, in the southern tip of the Netherlands, in its most trending district Wijck filled with cozy pubs, restaurants, hotels and fancy shops and galleries.
The congress venue is easily accessible by public transport (only 5-minute walk from Maastricht Central Railway Station) and overlooking the beautiful river Maas and the medieval part of the city.
It only takes a short stroll to experience the charm of this wonderful historic city, offering the some of the best things of its Burgundy way of life.
On the first evening of the congress, the city of Maastricht wants to express its warm welcome to all visitors of this PSIM IV congress and invites us to visit the historic Town Hall to toast on this great event. And for those who want to extend the gathering and eat and drink together, we will offer the opportunity to join us at the walking dinner at the patio of the congress venue that same evening.
Together, these events will provide a perfect opportunity to exchange ideas, increase our knowledge with the latest insights in research methodology in pain sciences, and not to mention start exciting new collaborations and strengthen already existing networks.

The Scientific Committee invites researchers from different fields of pain research (e.g. fundamental, clinical (orthopedics, rheumatology, anesthesiology, rehabilitation medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, etc.), psychological, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, movement sciences, pharmacology, neuromodulation, etc.) to submit their abstracts in which they reflect on the research methods used, and to discuss its specific value and opportunities for the field of pain research.
Abstract in which results are presented can be also submitted, but have a lower priority to be selected for oral presentations and are more likely to be selected to present during one of the interactive poster sessions.
