General meeting information:

About the International Neuromodulation Society The International Neuromodulation Society (INS) is a nonprofit group of clinicians, scientists and engineers dedicated to scientific development and knowledge of the promising medical discipline of neuromodulation, a rapidly growing family of therapies developed to help relieve pain or restore function by delivering electromagnetic stimulation or chemical agents directly to specific sites in the body. Founded in 1989 and based in San Francisco, Calif., the INS has 15 current and four forming chapters worldwide, and educates and promotes the field through meetings, its journal Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface, and chapter websites.
