Welcome note

Dear Colleague,

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the upcoming The European Congress on Clinical Trials in Pain (SOPATE2018) which will take place 3-4 December 2018 in Vienna, Austria.

More than 100 million people in Europe suffer from chronic pain and there is little agreement on what medications are helpful.

One reason for this is that clinical trials remain poor in assessing pain, disability and measuring meaningful improvement.

This Symposium, which will look at Clinical Trials in Pain, will bring together researchers, clinicians, industry professionals and other related experts to look at ways of improving the situation by developing better ideas and practices in clinical trials on pain and address medical devices and other interventions in the treatment and management of chronic pain.

The SOPATE2018 program will include a wealth of knowledge from our world renowned panel of experts.

We look forward to seeing you at SOPATE2018 in the exciting and historical city of Vienna. 

Prof. Ralf Baron
Congress Co-Chair
