On behalf of the Organising Committee I am delighted to invite you to the 76th National Scientific Congress of the Australian Society of Anaesthetists. The Congress will be held in the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from Saturday 7th to Tuesday 10th October 2017, which marks 10 years since the last Congress was held in Perth.
The logo and theme of the Congress –“Bridging the Elements”- are inspired by the newly developed Elizabeth Quay and its iconic footbridge, located next to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Quay was built to bring the Swan River and Perth City together again and our Congress once again aims to bring together the many different elements of Anaesthesia.
The highly enthusiastic Local Organising Committee from Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital’s Anaesthetic Department has worked hard to produce a Congress with an outstanding scientific program and an exciting social program.
Our invited speakers are Professor Michael Avidan from Washington University of St Louis Missouri, Dr Philipp Lirk from Harvard University, Associate Professor Marjorie Stiegler from the University of North Carolina and Professor David Story from the University of Melbourne. Along with local speakers and facilitators, they will bridge the many elements of pre-, intra- and post-operative care in anaesthesia through an extensive scientific program consisting of concurrent lectures, special interest group sessions, refresher courses, workshops, small group discussions and research and poster sessions.
Our social program will open with a Welcome Reception on Friday evening where you will be able to catch up with old friends and meet new colleagues. Saturday evening will be an Exhibitors function that will give our sponsors and delegates a chance to mingle in a more relaxed setting. A new social element of this Congress is the appropriately themed Gala dinner – A Song of Ice and Fire on Sunday night, which for the first time will enable our weekend delegates to join in a festive night of food, wine and dance. Finally “A Night in The Park” on Monday evening at the State Reception Centre (Fraser’s) in Kings Park will allow you to experience the wild flowers in full bloom and the breathtaking views of the Swan River and Elizabeth Quay.
Clear blue skies with balmy weather are the norm during springtime in Perth. I would highly recommend coming to Perth earlier or staying longer afterwards to enjoy and explore what our vast and amazing state of Western Australia has to offer – food, wine, natural attractions and a wide variety of outdoor activities.
We look forward to hosting you in Perth in October for a most memorable and educational meeting.
