The conference will be held from 15 – 18 March 2015 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC). We are expecting record numbers this year to celebrate the 35th anniversary of this important multidisciplinary conference.
The APS 2015 early bird deadline is Friday 23 January. Register soon to ensure you don’t miss out on these special rates.
2015 will be the first year the APS conference will solely use an app to communicate information to delegates. Within the APS 2015 app you will be able to; connect with speakers, exhibitors and other delegates, share contact information and social media profiles. With the capability to keep a personal schedule of sessions you want to attend, including adding personal meetings, you won’t forget that ‘catch up’ coffee with a delegate you haven’t seen since Hobart. Keep notes during sessions; use the interactive maps if you get lost, plus much, much more!
The app will be available for registered delegates through iTunes and Google Play from early March so you can arrive prepared.
The APS 2015 program has now been finalised. All topical sessions and free paper sessions are now listed on the conference website. For further information and to start planning your conference experience please visit the program overview.
Meet the Speakers Breakfast Sessions
New to the program in 2015, a Meet the Speakers breakfast session will be offered to junior researchers, PhD students and post doctorate fellows. The aim of this session is to give younger scientists and clinicians an opportunity to ascertain career advice and guidance from the APS 2015 international plenary speakers.
Anyone interested in being a part of this session should register their interest at the same time they register for the conference.
Delegates are fortunate enough to have 6 sponsored sessions available to them this year. BioCSL, Nevro, Mundipharma, Pfizer and Reckitt Benckiser (Health, Home and Hygiene) are all hosting breakfast sessions. RB Pharmaceuticals will host an afternoon session. Sessions are free and all delegates are encouraged to attend any that are of interest to them.
This year we celebrate the ‘Australian Pain Society: the first 35 years’. Look out for our special display in the exhibition hall.
The APS 2015 Gala Dinner will be held at Brisbane City Hall. Built between 1920 and 1930, the heritage-listed City Hall is seen as the heart of Brisbane and is one of Queensland’s most significant heritage and cultural icons. The dinner will be taking place in the Main Auditorium – one of the most photographed and renowned rooms in City Hall whose design was based on the Pantheon in Rome. Delegates should pack their party shoes as we have an exciting evening planned filled with delicious food and great music.
With the most extensive program ever and an exhibition hall and social events to match, make sure you don’t miss out on the only conference in Australia offering multidisciplinary insights into the complex nature of pain management from a variety of medical nursing and allied health perspectives.
We look forward to seeing you in Brisbane in March.
