The College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand (CICM) 2016 Annual Scientific Meeting will be like no other. With the theme of Minds and Machines, the College has gone beyond the focused single system conference to look at areas integral to the day to day management of patients.

While this conference has a neuro-critical care bent it will also appeal to a much wider audience. The presentations will help clinicians optimise their performance both as individuals, and through their relationships with machines and devices, by providing a critical examination of the management of ICU and oversight of the provision of ICU services.
