Neuromodulation: From Scientific Theory to Revolutionary Therapy

Letter of Invitation

It is indeed my great honor to invite you to the 15th World Congress of the International Neuromodulation Society. This biennial conference, subtitled "Neuromodulation: From Scientific Theory to Revolutionary Therapyā€¯, hopes to emphasize that neuromodulation therapies from deep brain stimulation for movement disorders, epilepsy and psychiatric disorders, to spinal cord stimulation for chronic pain and locomotion, to sacral nerve stimulation for urinary and fecal incontinence have all developed from rigorous scientific theory and have matured into proven clinical therapies. No longer considered mysterious or unproven therapies, neuromodulation therapies now have a strong underpinning in scientific theory which has led to rigorous studies of mechanisms of action which have ultimately led to refinement and personalization of neuromodulation techniques. The 15th INS World Congress will include plenary sessions from world experts, oral presentations, panel discussions, oral abstract presentations and poster sessions covering the basic science, mechanisms of action and clinical effectiveness of neuromodulation therapies. It will by design include networking opportunities to convey knowledge from multiple disciplines about current practice, future developments, and solutions for neuromodulation therapy of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous system.

The congress will bring together over 1,500 scientists, researchers, engineers, device developers and healthcare providers from around the globe to share evidence-based knowledge about basic, translational and clinical research; emerging technologies; and global health care trends in order to improve skills, outcomes, and access to patient care. All this only meters from the beach in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world: Barcelona! I invite you all to join us!

President, International Neuromodulation Society


Plans are underway for the International Neuromodulation Society's 14th World Congress, that will be held in gorgeous Sydney, Australia on 25 - 30 May 2019, and we hope you will start making your own plans to join us down under. If you have ever dreamt of visiting Australia, this is your opportunity.

Following the INS congress in Edinburgh, our most successful congress to date, we have received much positive and constructive feedback that our congress and scientific committees will take to heart while developing the program for Sydney. We thank everyone who has made the effort to complete attendee evaluations, as your input is critical to improving upon our organization's educational offerings.

With enthusiastic support from The Neuromodulation Society of Australia and New Zealand, our local host chapter who is very excited to welcome you, we assure you this is an event not to be missed and we invite you to save the date!

With best wishes,
