On August 26, 2012, pain researchers and clinicians from around the world gathered in Milan, Italy for a number of International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) Special Interest Group (SIG)-sponsored satellite symposia. Held in conjunction with the 14th World Congress on Pain, the 16 SIG-sponsored symposia covered a range of basic science and clinical topics. PRF asked the organizers of the various SIG-sponsored symposia to write summaries of their meetings; the summaries appear below as comments.
