Dear Colleagues, Friends and Collaborators,

The 6th World Congress on Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine is coming back to Europe!

Bringing together our continental Sister Societies, the American Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA Pain Medicine), the Latin American Society of Regional Anaesthesia (LASRA), the Asian & Oceanic Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine (AOSRA – PM), and the African Society of Regional Anaesthesia (AFSRA), this event will be a Joint Meeting, held simultaneously with the 40th ESRA Annual congress. Another wonderful gathering has been planned and is scheduled to take place on 6th to 9th September, 2023, at Palais des congrès de Paris – ViPARiS, an iconic building and vast venue, just a few steps away from the most beautiful avenue in the world.

For this occasion, the organizers have been working hard to offer you a truly wonderful and unique Parisian experience. Paris is full of surprises and so is the Congress scientific content, unfolded in a 4-day Meeting, in more than 15 Parallel Rooms. The Congress Scientific and Local Organizing Committees, embraced and supported by an extensive International Experts Group, have built an amazing Scientific Program for both young and experienced Delegates, with the substantial input and fruitful collaboration of the Five Continental RA and Pain Medicine Sister Societies (ESRA, ASRA Pain Medicine, LASRA, AFSRA, AOSRA – PM). Altogether, striving to serve the needs of our community, have aimed to enlighten and engage you within a comprehensive and high-quality Scientific Program, fully packed with the most groundbreaking scientific achievements and evidence-based practice recommendations, delivered by more than 300 well-respected international experts and KOL, as well as the rising stars of the future, all serving on our faculty team.

Joining together an audience of more than 3.000 participants, with a representation from more than 100 countries from all over the world, this is your opportunity in 2023 to network, as well as to share and underpin the latest updates, advancements and leading–edge research and innovation across the spectrum of Regional Anaesthesia (RA), Perioperative care, PocUS, as well as Acute Postoperative & chronic Pain Management.

Aiming to nurture, conduct and encourage interdisciplinary research in the aforementioned areas of interest, but also to fill in the gaps in Hands – On Training of the young generations, with applicability in daily practice, the Event Theme that has been selected for 2023 is:

«Spreading RA, Perioperative care & Pain Medicine around the World: our topmost Priority»

Counting on your support, enthusiasm and fruitful participation, together with all five continental Sister Societies, we are preparing another inspiring congress, and we are excited to have you all along our side! On behalf of the organizing team, we look forward to sharing and interacting with our colleagues across the globe and meet you all in the «City of Light», in September 2023, for another memorable experience.
