Welcome to 6th World Congress of SIVA-TCI 2018

Welcome to 6th World Congress of SIVA-TCI 2018

Dear Colleagues

Just over a few days have passed since the Timisoara meeting. The success of the meeting exceeded all our expectations and I think we can truly consider this to have been an exceptional congress, with more than 1300 participants.

It is an honour and a great pleasure for me to invite and welcome you to the next 6th World Congress of Intravenous Anaesthesia and Target Controlled Infusion, that will be held in Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia, from the 15th to 18th of August 2018.

I am sure you are aware that the scientific society, World SIVA, was constituted by the Faculty of the Congress during the meeting in Venice, on 29th September 2007, which acted as the voting Assembling. The coming together of a non-profit scientific society can only but enhance the future of TIVA-TCI. The Board of Directors reflects the international aspect of the Society, confirming the scientific collaboration we encourage. I am confident that they will continue to make outstanding contributions to our Scientific Society also in this important meeting in collaboration with the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists, the College of Anaesthesiologists and the Academy of Medicine of Malaysia.

During the Congress, we will explore the scientific application of anaesthesia, intensive care management, looking ahead and highlighting how best we can apply these techniques in the future.

We have an excellent, broad-based Scientific Programme Committee. The SPC is working on an attractive and ambitious programme, which will cover all the different multi-disciplinary aspects of research and medical practice in our field. Refresher Courses, Plenary Lectures, workshops and poster presentations will both encourage interaction and inspire exchange between participants.

A comprehensive Industrial Exhibition, and sponsored Satellite Symposia, will perfectly complement the scientific content.

Finally, and certainly not least, may I thank all the Faculty for the exceptional support to the next groundbreaking meeting. The results I have just outlined, together with the high number of scientific contributions could never come together without the kind of scientific support all the speakers will give. I think we can agree that the next event will be a success for all involved.

In this new age of scientific and technological advancements, the field of Anaesthesiology is also rapidly evolving, and to keep abreast, the theme for this Congress is aptly titled “Journey to the Future.”  The Congress has been designed to provide a crucial opportunity for clinicians, researchers and scientists to discover new technology and safer techniques in intravenous anaesthesia and target controlled infusion in areas of general anaesthesiology, intensive care, perioperative medicine and pain medicine.

With projected attendance of over 1000 delegates and more than 100 exhibitors to the Congress, there is no better place to be than at the World Congress of SIVA-TCI 2018 for delegates and exhibitors to explore and share their experiences and innovations specifically in total intravenous anaesthesia and target controlled infusion...
