Report From the 6th until the 11th of October, 2014, I attended the 15th World Congress on Pain in Buenos Aires. The World Congress on Pain is the premier congress devoted to research on and treatment of pain. The Congress boasts a hearty program of refresher courses, plenary lectures, topical workshops, and poster presentations. I did not only presented my poster in the Congress but also used the chance to inform myself about recent research activities that are similar to mine. Furthermore I could establish a very important contact and get valuable feedback about my research from a pioneer researcher. This conference was a good chance to get some new ideas to integrate it into my work.
