What will the 2022 ANZCA ASM look like?

The ROC and the events team are working to deliver an in-person meeting in Perth. The meeting will be supported by virtual elements.

What is the virtual element?

A live stream of the scientific program which will then be available to watch as catch up for 12 months post the meeting on the OnAIR virtual event platform.

This includes keynote presentations, interactive panel discussions, and concurrent sessions.

When can I view the ASM program?

The ASM program is now live, view the program here. So get ready to make your plan for the 2022 ANZCA ASM!

What does the workshop program look like?

The workshops are designed for those attending in-person. The ASM program, including this comprehensive workshop program is available to view and register now. If you register and subsequently want to add additional workshops, social events, or activities to your registration simply follow the instructions on your confirmation email.

Emergency Response Workshops
As emergency workshops are always quick to fill 50% of these workshops will be released on 26 November with the remainder released in February in line with WA’s Safe Transition Plan for those who may be feeling hesitant to register prior to borders opening.

When will registration open?

Registrations for the meeting will open from 12pm AEDT/9am AWST on 26 November, 2021. Cannot wait to have you on board!

When does the “Call for abstracts” open and close?

For full abstract submission guidelines, including prize information and eligibility, please visit the ASM website.

Please submit your abstract using the online submission form.

Abstract submissions will close at 11.59pm (AEDT), Sunday 16 January 2022.

What happens if we have a COVID lockdown?

Rest assured we continue to moderate the COVID situation with back up plans in place ready to execute if required.

What happens if I register as in-person delegate and can no longer enter WA?

We understand it’s a difficult time to plan ahead and things can change quickly. We’ve been working hard to make sure we can deliver the best ASM possible in an unpredictable environment.

If you register now as an in-person delegate and can no longer enter WA because of COVID, your registration will automatically be transferred to a virtual registration.

If you’re not comfortable with registering as an in-person delegate right now we suggest registering for a virtual ticket (which you can change to in-person later) or alternatively waiting to register until next year.

Your registration will automatically be transferred to a virtual registration if you are unable to attend in-person.

If the 2022 ANZCA ASM cannot run in-person what happens?

Regardless of the situation we have plans in place to deliver a meeting. Your registration will automatically be transferred to whatever is applicable at the time.
