  1. Presenting author(s) or presenter(s) of accepted abstracts must register at the current registration rate to attend the PAINWeek National Conference. Submission of an abstract does not automatically register you for the conference.
  2. Abstracts may be of original research or encore (repeat) presentations of abstracts, ie, PAINWeek will accept abstracts that have already been presented at other medical conferences.

  6. List disclosures (financial and/or in-kind support). If none, state “Nothing to disclose by any author(s)”.
  7. Please indicate whether you are interested in being considered to present orally.
  8. Do not use tables, charts, or graphs in your abstract submission (they can be included in the actual poster).
  9. There is no limit to the number of abstracts one author may submit for consideration.
  10. The first author is responsible for communicating all these policies to all involved parties.
  11. Student authors are permitted to submit.



PAINWeek requires faculty and poster authors/presenters who have an interest in selling a technology, program, product, and/or service to healthcare professionals to disclose this information in order to be considered for and/or present at any PAINWeek educational session.


If your abstract is accepted, you will be notified on or by August 16, and the abstract will be posted online by August 27. Only accepted abstracts will be posted online. Posters will not be published online.

Poster and Presentation Guidelines

  1. After acceptance, format your abstract into a poster which may include graphs, tables, and charts.
  2. Maximum poster size is 42" high x 90" wide.
  3. Authors/presenters should bring their posters with them to the conference. Please do not send posters to the PAINWeek offices or in care of PAINWeek.
  4. Detailed instructions will accompany acceptance notices.
  5. While first authors typically attend the conference in person, PAINWeek allows other listed authors to attend in his/her place.
  6. Recording by any means (photographing, audiotaping, videotaping) of any presentation/session is prohibited, except by a PAINWeek authorized agent or by first author(s) who wish to photograph their own poster presentation. Violators risk confiscation of their equipment and/or dismissal from PAINWeek.
  7. QR codes with a maximum size of 1" by 1" are permitted in the lower corner of posters. Scanning of a QR code only by participants using smart phones or other mobile devices is permissible.
  8. Interactive content/features on printed posters that can be viewed using smartphones or iPads is allowed (for example, additional graphs, animations, videos related to the printed poster content).
  9. Presenters may use an iPad or tablet to facilitate their presentation, but it cannot be using in lieu of a printed poster. Tablets may also be available for viewers to see the interactive content during the poster presentation time.
  10. Supplementary information on how to download relevant QR codes and access interactive content may be included on the poster, ie, within the text of the poster or printed on the bottom.


Poster Set-up

Authors should arrive on site to have their posters up by 3:00p on Wednesday, September 4 (Day 2 of the conference). PAINWeek will provide a poster board, pushpins, and poster number. If you would like to provide reprints of your posters (ie, handouts) you may leave them under your assigned poster board. Posters will be available for public viewing after 3:30p. The poster session room will be closed at 5:30p for the Keynote and Welcome Reception and will reopen on Thursday at 8a.

Scientific Session and Reception

Due to the enormity of requests for posters to have longer onsite accessibility, we ask that all posters be set-up by 3:00p on Wednesday, September 4. All authors and/or presenters should be available at their posters for the Scientific Session reception, which will be held on Thursday, September 5, 6:30p-8:30p. PAINWeek name badges will be required for entry. Refreshments will be served.

Oral Presentations

The review committee will choose 6 abstracts (posters) for oral presentations at the PAINWeek National Conference. Presenters will be notified by August 24. Date, time, and location of oral presentations will be announced. While first authors typically present in person, PAINWeek allows other listed authors to present in his/her place.

Late-breaking Abstracts

The PAINWeek late-breaking abstracts policy allows for the submission of late-breaking abstracts only for randomized phase III trials for which no preliminary data are available at the time of the abstract submission deadline (July 26), but for which a preplanned analysis of the primary endpoint is scheduled after that date but before August 16 (deadline for the final, updated late-breaking abstract). During abstract submission, you will be required to provide the date of planned analysis. The policy is not a mechanism to allow for updated data to be submitted later when preliminary data are available by the abstract submission deadline.

Diversity of Support Opportunities

A wide range of opportunities are available for advertising and sponsorship support. PAINWeek understands and appreciates the value of your participation, and we will work closely with you to maximize the impact of your amenity or event.


Frequently asked exhibitor questions answered.

Is it possible to sponsor more than one amenity?

Yes. Additional sponsorship is on a first-reserved basis, and sponsors may choose from a variety of opportunities.

If my company supports a satellite symposium, do I automatically become a diamond/platinum/gold corporate benefactor?

While PAINWeek appreciates your support of a satellite symposium we consider a corporate benefactor sponsorship to be separate. However, Diamond Sponsors will receive a $15,000 discount on their sponsorship fee when they combine with a PAINWeek PDM Program offering. All satellite symposia supporters are given recognition in our program guide.
