IFPP 2017 Abstract Submissions
The theme of IFPP 2017 is: “Engaging for Impact: Partnerships in Pediatric Pain” with an exciting line-up of keynote speakers including: André Picard, Dr. Paula Forgeron, Dr. Mats Ericsson, Dr. Fiona Campbell, Dr. Laura Simons, and Dr. Serge Marchand. Back by popular demand, the Sunday morning marquis event involving debates on the topics of The Dirty World of Profit and Bunk, Hope and Reality.
Submission of abstracts can relate to any aspect of pain in children, and can be a work in progress, original or previously presented data or theory, topical reviews, or clinical cases. The abstract should consist of no more than 300 words in 12 point font and follow the outline (as appropriate): Title; Objective; Design; Setting; Participants; Procedures; Measures; Results; Conclusions; References; Citation (if previously published). Abstracts will not be published, so presentation does not preclude submission to another meeting before or after IFPP.
This year we have a Hot Topics Panel featuring What’s New In Pain Research and Management. Presentations in this panel will be selected from submitted abstracts and, given the theme of the meeting, preference will be given to abstracts that demonstrate partnerships with patients and/or communities. When submitting your abstract, please indicate your interest in being a part of this panel.
Please note the abstract submission deadline is April 1, 2017, abstracts are currently being accepted using google forms via the linkhttps://goo.gl/forms/jamFK4k8piu7W4Fm2(Authors will be emailed notification of acceptance of their posters in early May. Early conference registration will open in May and will be announced when available.)

Previous IFPP Conferences & IFPP Publications
The International Forum on Pediatric Pain began in 1996, organized by the faculty of the Centre for Pediatric Pain Research. They hoped to create a multidisciplinary, stimulating, and educational workshop with researchers from around the world. Since then, each Forum has brought together scientists and clinicians for plenary lectures, interactive workshops, and peer-reviewed poster sessions. Held at White Point Beach Resort, IFPP offers a quaint, relaxed atmosphere which allows for networking between colleagues and sharing of current research in all areas of pediatric pain.
