Poster Prize

We recognise and strongly support research and innovation as one of the key roles and contributions of anaesthetists and anaesthetic trainees. Therefore, the organising committee of the Tasmanian Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) would like to invite all fellows and trainees to make submissions for the Poster Presentation session.
The session is sponsored by the Australian Society of Anaesthetists (ASA), and aims to highlight and support original research and audits in anaesthesia, perioperative medicine and pain medicine. The Tasmanian ASM represents an excellent chance to be recognised for your contributions to research in anaesthesia and to share your original work at a face-to-face conference held on the picturesque Hobart waterfront.
Electronic abstract submissions are to be submitted by email, by 5pm on Friday 21 January, 2022.
Accepted authors will present in person, with a poster and five minute presentation at the ASM on Saturday 26 February 2022.

Please see the Poster Presentation Guidelines for further details.

Social Program

The main conference cocktail event will be held at the renowned Aloft Restaurant.

Aloft sits on the top floor of the new Brooke Street Pier, and has one of Hobart’s most stunning views over the Derwent River. See dolphins and seals, spectacular sunsets and dramatic weather changes – all from the dining room.

Aloft pride themselves in providing dishes full of flavour made from Tasmanian ingredients not necessarily found anywhere else in Australia.
