The ICS State of the Art Meeting (10.12.18 – 12.12.18)




“There is always something more to learn, even for a master” – Kung Fu Panda 3


State of the Art (SOA) is back, and this year it’s happening right in the heart of London, at the award-winning QEII Centre. There’s a jam packed three-day programme with ninety of the very best speakers, over thirty concurrent sessions, opening and closing plenary’s, and so much more!

Wait there’s more: SOAp Box with relaxed mini-talks in the Exhibition Hall, Cauldron, Pecha Kucha, e-posters, and our 
BRAND NEW Learning Suite, including immersive simulation, echo and POCUS live demonstrations. And, there are also FIVE different opportunities to present your work to peers. Phew! 

Who would want to miss this!?

SOA is the UK’s largest multi-professional critical care conference, and 2018 will definitely live up this prestigious title. You’ll witness science, technology, core topics, pro-con debates, roundtable discussions, latest updates in the literature, medico-legal issues, and more. More importantly, the practical applications and what you can take back to your own departments underpin the aims of SOA.

It’s not just work though. We want you to have a great time so have scheduled social events in the evenings as well as a fun run for those early morning adrenaline junkies! 

Learn, share knowledge, network, and return to your departments feeling inspired, reinvigorated and ready to face the challenges and many rewards of critical care.


I look forward to seeing you in London in December.  Register HERE
