Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Greetings! It gives me great pleasure to extend a warm welcome to the Annual Scientific Congress of the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists and the College of Anaesthesiologists (ASC of the MSA/CoA) to be held from the 25th to the 27th of August 2016 at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. The Obstetric Anaesthesia Satellite Meeting, an international event preceding the 16th World Congress of Anaesthesiologists in Hong Kong, will be held in conjunction with our Annual Congress. It is a great honour for us to welcome eminent speakers from all over the world to share with us their knowledge and experience before some of them head to Hong Kong.
The theme for the ASC of the MSA/CoA is titled ‘Back to Basics’ which we hope will be able to meet the expectations of delegates in covering a wide range of topics in the Obstetrics and non-Obstetrics sessions. The Organising and Scientific Committees have been hard at work to ensure an enjoyable academic congress. The Scientific Committee has drawn up a stimulating programme consisting of pre-congress workshops with hands-on workshops, plenaries and concurrent symposium sessions.
The congress will see distinguished and renowned speakers who are experts in their respective fields sharing their knowledge and expertise on a wide variety of topics, representing the latest developments and future trends. This is definitely a congress not to be missed!
Please do come and join us for the ever popular Gala Dinner which promises to be an entertaining affair to ensure that the delegates will have time to catch up with other delegates in an informal setting.
We look forward to meeting you and to share a pleasant, interesting and fruitful congress.
Professor Marzida Mansor
and CoA Annual Scientific Congress
& Obstetric Anaesthesia Satellite Meeting
