36th Annual Scientific Sessions 2020

Dear Colleagues,

It gives me immense pleasure in announcing the 36th annual academic sessions of the College of Anaesthesiologists & Intensivists of Sri Lanka.  The main sessions will be held on the 18th and the 19th of January 2020 at Hotel Galadari, Colombo, Sri Lanka. This will be held in collaboration with the Colleges of Anaesthesiologists of Singapore and Malaysia and with the participation of many members from the Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA), UK. Our chief guest is Prof Ravi Mahajan, President of the RCoA.

The number of the international guest speakers participating in our congress has gradually increased over the years. This year we have an exclusive foreign faculty. Specialists from many countries including UK, Australia, India, Singapore, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Malaysia will participate. We have lined up many pre and post congress workshops and simulation programmes in addition to the two days of congress. I wish to thank Dr. Kanishka Indraratna, the chairman of the academic congress for recruiting the overseas faculty and helping the college organize an international congress.

There will be ample opportunity to update and to share your knowledge on recent developments in the fields of Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine. We would like you to experience the Sri Lankan hospitality, cultural heritage and the spicy culinary.

Asoka Gunaratne
