The 2024 Annual Meeting, presented by IARS and SOCCA, is built by the Anesthesiology Research & Critical Care community.  The annual meeting mission is to encourage, stimulate, and fund ongoing anesthesia-related research projects that will enhance and advance the specialty, and to disseminate current, state-of-the-art, basic and clinical research data in all areas of clinical anesthesia, including perioperative medicine, critical care, and pain management.

Proposals will be considered for the 2024 Annual Meeting or our Virtual Education Webinar Series.

Session Format: Proposals may be submitted for for featured symposia, concurrent panels, and problem-based learning discussions. Review the Format and guidelines for each session here.

Please note: All moderators and speakers must present live in-person in Seattle for the 2024 Annual Meeting. 

Review Process: Program proposals will be blinded and reviewed by a group of volunteer members.  The Annual Meeting Oversight Committee will make final decisions for Annual Meeting Programming.

DEI Statement: Diversity and inclusion, in all their forms, are essential to the Annual Meeting. We consider diversity comprehensively, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability and disability, age, low resource / income countries, disadvantaged socioeconomic status in high resource/income countries, and other factors that shape creative perspective and professional experience. While diverse representation is not a requirement, it will be taken into consideration in the selection of sessions.
