Phantom Limb Pain (PLP) is a prevalent condition after amputation that has intrigued scientists for over a century.

The aim of the 1st International Conference on Phantom Limb Pain (ICPLP2021) is to bring together world-renowned experts on the study and treatment of PLP, and to create a forum for open discussions on competing theories and findings regarding PLP.
