This will be the first emergency medicine and critical care conference that lives, eats and breathes social media. It is first and foremost a multidisciplinary critical care conference. But it will be imbued and enhanced by the power of social media and FOAM. There are world class speakers lined up (think of the likes of Scott Weingart, Joe Lex, Simon Carley, Simon Finfer, Cliff Reid, Anthony Holley and John Myburgh just for starters) but what it is really going to be about is participation, both of those who are there physically as well as those experiencing it virtually from all around the world.
For the EMCC clinical educator, involvement in this conference is an absolute must.
Because FOAM and conferences like SMACC promise to be the cornerstones of the future of medical education, and there will be no better place to share exciting ideas and put your own work on display. You’ll be mixing with like-minded people who are committed to a movement that values free open access meducation for everyone, everywhere. You will have the opportunity to present free papers and posters with a chance to win one of 3 categories: ‘best scientific’, ‘best educational initiative’ and ‘best social media/ online resource’. Get your submissions in here by 30 November 2012. Be sure to follow @smacc2013 on Twitter, and remember that you, the participant, can shape what happens on this conference… Tell us what you want to happen in Sydney on 11-13 March 2013 and we will listen.
