The health and safety of our attendees and communities is our top priority. With the current situation in mind, we are working on a backup plan for a virtual congress. Whatever the final decision, we will ensure there is plenty of time for our community and partners to plan accordingly. Thank you for your continued patience and support while we plan the congress.

Program

The 2021 World Congress of Intensive and Critical Care is committed to deliver high-quality scientific content that adapted to the needs of critical care professionals during these unprecedented times. 

 

OUR COMMITMENT

We are committed to the principles of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. We are aiming for 50% of the speakers as females or other genders aside from males. We will make every effort to assure each session represents at least 2 different health professionals from 2 different continents. To improve the inclusive nature of the meeting we are exploring the ability to many of the scientific sessions.
