Hybrid Conference I Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre



On behalf of ACEM, IFEM and the 21st International Conference on Emergency Medicine (ICEM) Organising Committee, I would like to extend a warm invitation to you to attend, participate in and contribute to ICEM 2022. This conference promises to be a milestone meeting, a chance to advance IFEM’s position as a leader in global emergency medicine, and an incredible opportunity to contribute to better emergency healthcare across the globe.
The conference theme is Better Care for a Better World, a goal we are all striving to achieve. This theme encapsulates why we work in emergency medicine and why we provide emergency care.
As clinicians, physicians, nurses, aid workers and disaster experts in countries across the world – developing and developed – we all share that same goal – we all work towards a better world. We see and work for a world where healthcare is accessible for all – where healthcare is a right, not a privilege.
This conference is about how we can try to achieve that goal. We will hear from experts across the globe about how emergency care – the frontline of healthcare – is demonstrating success and where we need to provide more support in research, education, training and advocacy; advocacy for rational resource stewardship, the health of our planet and equity of healthcare provision.
The conference will showcase presentations on advances in care systems, research, trauma, paediatrics, toxicology and aged care. We will have a blend of live and virtual events, embracing the technological advances we’ve experienced through the pandemic, and will discuss how we take further advantage of these innovations for improved healthcare and health systems.
But, most excitingly, we hope to have you in Melbourne, in person, or on our shared platforms, to play your part in helping us provide “Better care for a Better World”.
So, put the dates in your calendars, prepare your abstracts, update your profile photo and – maybe, hopefully – dust off your passports.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Dr Simon Judkins
ICEM 2022 Conference Convenor



ACEM would like to acknowledge the Kulin nation as the Traditional Custodians of the lands upon which ICEM 2022 will be held. We also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands upon which Australian emergency departments are located. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future, because they hold the memories, traditions, culture and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of Australia. In recognition that ACEM is a bi-national College, we also acknowledge Maori as tangata whenua and Treaty of Waitangi partners in Aotearoa New Zealand.


ACEM and the Local Organising Committee will be offering a hybrid conference model, which will consist of a in-person conference in Melbourne coupled with an online program so that both in-person and remote delegates can attend. Both options will provide delegates with keynote and invited speakers, oral presentations, workshops, panel discussions, networking opportunities as well as a in-person and virtual exhibition.

By offering a hybrid model we can be more inclusive and welcoming to a larger community who may not be able to attend in person due to travel, health, budget or other restrictions. Of course, in exploring more hybrid aspects, we aim to preserve the diversity, inclusion and accessibility of any in-person event.

Any in-person restrictions that may be in place in June 2022 will dictate how much of a in-person/online event versus entirely online event will take place, and may mean that the number of in-person conference attendees will be capped at a specified limit – we encourage you to register as early as possible to secure your place.
