It gives us great pleasure to invite you to Perth, Australia for the RANZCOG 2016 Annual Scientific Meeting, 16 -19 October 2016.
The theme of the meeting is ‘East meets West’. This is graphically depicted by the taijitu, the Chinese symbol for the concept of yin yang, to reflect the commonalities and differences within our speciality. Taijitu also represents the interface between the mind and body, the individual and the team, local and global health and the opportunities this meeting presents for these to come together.
Our Organising Committee has invited renowned national and international leaders to produce a program of wide appeal, promising to satisfy all levels of scientific and clinical interest across our speciality.
Perth is the gateway to Western Australia and was christened the ‘City of Light’ by US astronauts as they passed over it in the 1960s. As an adjunct to the exciting scientific program, there will be considerable opportunity for social activities. Nestled on the banks of the beautiful Swan River, Perth blends urban sophistication with raw natural beauty. Spring is a superb time to visit the city- experience the wildflowers in Kings park, surf at Cottesloe beach, see the quokkas on Rottnest island, visit Fremantle or explore the meandering Swan River and adjacent wineries.
So come along to Perth in October 2016. We look forward to meeting all of you.
