Scientific Program & Awards

Dear Colleagues

On behalf of ANZSN’s Scientific Program and AwaRd Committee (SPARC), I am delighted to invite you to the 57th Annual Scientific Meeting in Sydney, New South Wales.

The meeting will be held on 17-19 October in NSW. We are sure everyone is eager in anticipation for a face-to-face meeting after two years of virtual events. We look forward to welcoming you at an iconic venue to share your experiences on life beyond COVID-19 pandemic. For those who are unable to travel, and to increase our ability to host international speakers, the ASM will still retain an online component.

The Nephrology and Transplantation Update Course will be held, prior to the ASM on 15-16 October, and we anticipate that other satellite meetings will take place the day prior, on 16 October. We will also have a range of awards on offer, and we look forward to the opportunity to present them in person this year.

We are working tirelessly to put together an exciting scientific program that will cover a breath of topics that relevant to trainees, allied health, researchers and nephrologists. We are delighted in having two expert co-Chairs for the Local organizing committee: Dr Muh Geot Wong, who brings significant experience in hosting national and international meetings, and Dr Lisa Phipps representing our fellow colleagues from the Regions.

You will also be pleased to hear that ANZSN has committed to a childcare assistance package and will provide a child-friendly venue so that you can attend the conference and still met your parenthood responsibilities.

You can keep following the progress of the 57th ASM through this website, our weekly member newsletter or on Twitter via @ANZSNASM.

Once again, we would like to welcome everyone to Sydney in October 2022.

ACCOR Stadium
The Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology recognises that urgent action is needed within the nephrology community to help minimise the impacts of climate change, sustainably manage natural resources, and reduce and manage waste.  It is committed to embedding environmental sustainability into its operations, including holding conferences in ways that maximally benefit the host community and all involved while minimising environmental harm. Toward this aim, and with the help of the Green Nephrology Action Team (GNAT), a working group of the ANZSN, convened in partnership with Renal Society of Australasia, Kidney Health Australia and Kidney Health New Zealand, a range of green initiatives were incorporated into the 2020 meeting. We thank you for your support of these and welcome feedback on improvements that might be made in future meetings.
