IMPORTANT CHANGE TO 13th ISPP: The exceptional disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has led the ISPP Scientific Committee and Pain in Childhood SIG Executive Committee to make the pragmatic decision to defer ISPP2021 to Thursday 24 – Sunday 27 March, 2022.
Fortunately, the Local Organizing Committee has been able to secure the same venue, The Cordis Hotel in Auckland, New Zealand.
Thursday 24 March 2022 will continue to be the Education Day while Friday 25 to Sunday 27 March will be the dates for the Symposium. See for further information.
