The 7th International Congress on Neuropathic Pain (NeuPSIG 2019) is an international forum that provides the latest research and developments in understanding the mechanisms, assessment, prevention and treatment of neuropathic pain. This meeting is is an excellent opportunity to network and strengthen scientific collaboration. This is an unique way to meet researchers, clinicians, and others from a wide range of disciplines, countries and backgrounds, disseminating and learning about the latest developments in the field. 
Themes:
Diabetic Neuropathic Pain
Positive and negative sensory symptoms are very common in nerve damage related to diabetes, one of the largest burden in public health worldwide. Patients with diabetes and neuropathy comprise a substantial proportion, even in those with only glucose intolerance, a “pre-diabetic” condition. Read more.
Chemotherapy-induced Peripheral Neuropathic Pain
Sensory dysfunction and pain are the most common and intractable treatment-limiting factors, and among the most distressing symptoms of cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Sensory disturbances in chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) range from numbness (paresthesia) and unpleasant tingling (dysesthesia) to painful cramps, deep muscle aches, and spontaneous burning pain.

The German Society for Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine (DGAI) invites you to the German Anesthesiology Congress (DAC) 2019.
All areas of their field face the possibilities and challenges of taking up the advancements of medicine and using them for the benefit of the patients. For years, there has been a tension between the demands of a high degree of specialization in various clinical areas and the availability of resources. The socio-economic working conditions, the lack of staff in the medical and nursing service and the high demands placed on the medical and nursing qualifications place high demands on organizational management. In addition, there is the constant increase in medical knowledge in this field as well as in all disciplines with which the Society cooperates in a variety of ways.

The 46th annual meeting of the European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS 2019) will take place from 11-14 May 2019 in Budapest, Hungary, with pre-congress day on 10 May 2019.
ECTS serves as a forum for researchers and clinicians working in the musculoskeletal field to discover and discuss the latest advances and controversies in research and in the daily care of patients. A special highlight this year will be the 50th year anniversary of bisphosphonates. Everyone in the field knows their history and impact on clinical medicine, but what will be their future? A forward looking session will review future developments.
Also new this year, the meeting will include relevant hot clinical sessions and interactive “how do I” to help managing patients going along the newest knowledge in the field.

The educational aspects of ECTS 2019 will include pre-meeting courses, working group meetings and workshops. There will be many interactive sessions: Meet-the-Experts, ECTS-ASBMR clinical debate and the Opening Ceremony will review ECTS Practice Guidelines issued during the past year. As in previous years, ECTS 2019 will include a New Investigator programme fully organised by our young leaders, the ECTS Academy.
This programme will give the opportunity to new investigators to network, share common interests, receiving mentoring advices and start building their own collaborative projects at an international level. Collaboration will also be highlighted in several joint sessions with international bone societies: ASBMR and our partners from China, Japan and Korea.



ECTS Congress is recognised a successful scientific meeting thanks to the large number of contributions coming via abstract submissions. We are committed to offer large visibility to promising abstracts by including them in plenary oral sessions, poster orals, SNAPS or via dedicated poster viewing sessions.

As questions are asked related to equitable access to palliative care in Europe and around the world, the congress “Global Palliative Care — Shaping the future” will explore how palliative care fits with the current global health agenda. 
Five years on from the adoption of the 2014 World Health Assembly Resolution on Palliative Care, the EAPC Berlin congress is the perfect time to reflect on the progress in the development of palliative care globally and to identify areas where more needs to be done. This Congress will take place shortly after the 2018 United Nations High Level Meeting on non-communicable diseases, and this will give delegates the opportunity to examine the extent to which palliative care has been included in universal health coverage within various health systems.
The increasing recognition of the importance of palliative care in society is reflected in the growing number of EAPC congress delegates who represent a range of disciplines from many countries throughout Europe and beyond.  The EAPC World Congress provides a unique opportunity to network and meet with colleagues, clinicians, caregivers, researchers, volunteers and educators in palliative care from across the globe to exchange knowledge, to celebrate diversity and richness, make new links, new collaborations and develop projects during the time spent together.
Berlin is the capital of Germany, the country's largest city and the major centre for politics, culture and science. It is an ideal place to host the EAPC World Congress, where more than 3000 participants are expected to attend the congress.
You can find more information, such as the programm for the event, abstract presentations and application for Researcher Awards here.
