EP3 By the sea… Adelaide, Australia, 1-3 April 2016
Five speakers to ignite your senses. Three days to learn, connect and be inspired. One unique Explain Pain event.
It’s beautifully evolving…
The three day Explain Pain event has taken on a life of its own – it’s getting bigger, better and it’s beautifully evolving. In 2016 we’re phoning home and we’re bringing some of this planet’s biggest terrestrials in pain and neuroimmune science with us. After two sold-out years in Melbourne, EP3 will be held in Glenelg, Adelaide’s premier seaside location, adding spectacular views to brand new content and a fresh new format.
With EP3 2016 we’re expanding the international flavour, adding another speaker and delivering the most diverse EP3 line up yet – combining neuroimmunology, psychology, sensory processing research, education psychology, conceptual change science, brains, bodies, space and clinical pain science. You’ll get to know pain like never before and leave as a knowledge leader in your field.
Need another reason?
PainAdelaide 2016 – described as ‘probably the best little pain meeting in the world’ – will be held on April 4. So for a perfect four day experience we are offering a special ‘pre-sale’ ticket. PainAdelaide tickets won’t be publicly available for purchase until much later this year so this way you can lock in your place! A great deal for our overseas guests. see below for pricing and registration details.
The speakers – if this were a prize fight, they’d be in the super heavyweight division…
Professor Frank Keefe is the Editor-in-chief of Pain. We could stop right there… but we won’t, because Frank is also the author of over 400 publications, a world leading expert in the study of pain coping processes, the role of pain coping and emotion in explaining pain and disability and novel psychosocial interventions for pain. Frank is part of the Psychology and Neuroscience Department at Duke University with clinical interests in individual and group cognitive behavioural therapy, spouse training and psychosocial interventions to prevent persistent pain. Frank brings with him a world of experience and expertise and continues in the footsteps of fellow Americans Mark Jensen (2014) and Kevin Vowles (2015) in bringing the latest in clinical psychology to enhance Explain Pain interventions.

Professor Giandomenico Iannetti is a professor of Neuroscience in the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology at the Faculty of Life Sciences, University College London. Giando undertakes some of the grooviest research happening, combining psychophysics and laboratory toys such as lasers, EEG, fMRI and microneurography. Giando is particularly interested in the transmission and modulation of ascending nociceptive signals, the generation of painful precepts following nociceptive stimulation and the detection and reaction to dangerous events around our body – in our peripersonal space. The clinical implications of Giando’s research are fascinating – you’ll have to reserve your place to find out more!

Professor Mark Hutchinson is an Adelaidian with a big international reputation. The new knowledge of the neuroimmune pain interface has revolutionised our understanding and thinking about pain in the last decade and Mark has been at the leading edge of this research. He’s the director of the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics, which sounds a bit scary, but don’t let this put you off. Mark’s work suggests that to effectively treat pain, we all need to become neuroimmunotherapists – come along to find out how (and perhaps realise that you already are).

Professor Lorimer Moseley, and the newest prof on the block, Associate Professor David Butler round out our biggest EP3 line up yet. Lorimer has promised us something new and exciting at EP3 – so new he won’t even tell us about it yet.

David will be working tirelessly throughout the entire three days to merge and translate everything that goes on, into clinical narrative and the ever expanding Explain Pain story book using metaphor and conceptual change science.
How will the course be delivered?
EP3 2016 is pulling out the big guns with interactive lectures, practical workshop sessions and the opportunity to get up close and into the peripersonal space of this year’s rock star line up.
Who is it open to?
