INS New dates

The INS 15th World Congress moving to 21-26 May 2022

Updated 17 November 2020


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We hope this message finds you well.

In planning the INS 15th World Congress in Barcelona, our participants’ safety and well-being has been our highest priority. While we very much had hoped to meet you in person in Barcelona in 2021, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Congress until 21-26 May 2022 – when we believe it will be safe for us to meet in person again.  The Congress will take place at the same venue, the Convenciones Internacional Barcelona (CCIB), in the heart of Barcelona, Spain.

We are deeply grateful to the scientific program committee members and our members who have contributed to the development of an exciting scientific program and we will make every effort to update and refine the program for 2022.

If you have already submitted an abstract or are preparing your abstract, we appreciate your efforts and we will be in touch with some alternative options for presenting your work to your fellow neuromodulators around the globe.

In the meantime, we remain committed to maintaining a sense of connection and community by offering free online education programs to our members until we can meet in person. We will continue hosting the INS’s quarterly virtual journal club, and monthly, CME-accredited webinar program after the Polyanalgesic Consensus Conference webinar series concludes in February 2021. Please stay tuned for more details, and feel free to send your ideas for future webinar topics to

We hope you and your loved ones remain well, and we look forward to seeing you at our online programs, and live in Barcelona in 2022!
