Like a fat kid with a cookie or teenager getting ready for a first date, we’re pretty excited here at the ICECReam just at the moment. The reason is that we’re gearing up for the Early Career Researchers’ workshop at the 12th International Forum on Back Pain Research in Primary Care that will be held inOdense,Denmarkfrom 16 to 19 October. The organisers have kindly given us a 90 minute timeslot for the workshop along with 15 minutes presentation time to feedback our thoughts to the whole conference.
It’s time to rock the research world! The plan is to have a series of focused discussions around the current direction of research in the area and try and put forward our views about what’s good, what works, what won’t and generally what the future holds. The working title for the workshop is; “Forum 2029 – The next generation.” So far we have about 30 future research leaders signed up to attend, and we’re working feverishly to nail down exactly how it is going to work.
For those of you who’ll be there, thanks for your support, we look forward to seeing you and can’t wait to hear your input. For those that won’t be there, stay tuned to the site and we’ll knock up a summary for the website after the conference.
Of course we’ve also planned some social events, because everyone knows that too much work and not enough play is bad for your health!
