Dear Fellows, Trainees and Associates


On behalf of the Organising Committee, we would like to invite you to the 87th Annual Scientific Congress of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons to be held in Sydney. It will commence on Monday 7 May and run through until Friday 11 May 2018.


This is a particularly important Annual Scientific Congress as it will be held in conjunction with the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists and will also be associated with the American College of Surgeons who are providing a large number of delegates. The theme of the Congress will be “reflecting on what really matters”. As healthcare becomes ever more complicated, it is important to keep sight of the things that really matter and what needs to be measured, remembered and utilised. We have a very varied and stimulating Congress planned with a large number of invited international experts. The Section Conveners are constructing a very informative sub-speciality program, and there will be a number of combined sessions with the College of Anaesthetists as well as significant input from our American colleagues. Whatever your interest, we are confident that you will find many parts of the program informative and stimulating.


The Congress will be located at the new Sydney Convention Centre in Darling Harbour which is a state of the art facility. It has been more than ten years since the Annual Scientific Congress was held in Sydney and we will be one of the first large conferences to be held in the new Convention Centre. The Sydney Convention Centre is located in Darling Harbour with easy access to other parts of the city. Sydney is the major cultural and business centre in Australia as well as being its largest city. The Convention Centre is located right on Sydney Harbour with its distinctive views and experiences and many of the hotels associated with the ASC are within easy walking distance. Sydney has a plethora of outstanding dining opportunities as well as many cultural experiences and there is “something for everyone”. We will be offering a number of enjoyable social tours during the week of the congress and there will also be a selection of post congress tours and trips available.


Sydney’s weather in May tends to be dry and has a pleasant temperature, usually with an average temperature of approximately 16 degrees Celsius (61 F). It is an excellent time of the year to walk around the city and see the sights.


We warmly welcome you to the ASC in 2018 in Sydney and we look forward to welcoming our local Fellows, Trainees and Associates as well as our international guests and our anaesthetic colleagues.
