Welcome to the 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting

Dear Colleagues,

The College of Intensive Care Medicine would like to invite you to its Annual Scientific Meeting in Sydney 26th – 28th May.

The ASM is returning to Sydney for the first time since the inaugural CICM ASM in 2010. The 2017 ASM Program is returning to single organ theme, with the theme being ‘ICU Gastroenterology: From beginning to End’. An exceptional line-up of international and national speakers will update us on the latest evidence, theories and practice, involving the GI system and its evolving importance in critically ill patients. Along with the traditional session set-up, there will be rapid-fire topic and guideline challenging sessions to stir up debate and discussion. There will also be the 2017 graduation ceremony and dinner which is to be held at the iconic Doltone House overlooking the magnificent Sydney Harbour.

The Harbour City has undergone major regeneration since the previous ASM, and Sydney welcomes you to its new look, with the bustling new developments at Barangeroo and Darling Harbour, including the newly-built Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre which is the venue for the ASM. There will be plenty of time to network with colleagues, and also spend time with your family and friends, with services specifically designed to make your attendance and stay seamless and family-friendly. Our events calendars are rapidly becoming packed with numerous meetings and conferences, however the CICM 2017 ASM is the one not to be missed, so book the date in your diaries now.

We look forward to seeing you all in Sydney. 

CICM 2017 ASM Organising Committee.
