Welcome to the 43rd Annual Scientific Meeting Conference website

I commend to you the 43rd annual scientific meeting of the Australasian Division of the IAP once again to be held in the new International Convention Centre within the revitalized Darling Harbour precinct of Sydney Australia. Sydney remains one of the world’s most popular destinations and outside the meeting program there are no shortage of exciting options for you to enjoy.

Once again our meetings falls in the middle of the spectacular Vivid Sydney festival – the world’s largest event of this type whereby parts of the city are transformed from 6pm nightly by amazing light installations and projections and cutting-edge music.

As always our educational programmes are dynamic, diverse and inspirational.  A look over the meeting programme will highlight the range of topics we have curated for registrants brought to you by an outstanding array of international and Australasian speakers. In addition to practicing pathologists there is much in the programme of interest and value to pathology trainees.

I look forward to welcoming you to the preeminent educational meeting for anatomic pathologists and registrars in our region; if you are a regular attendee then welcome back, if you approaching this meeting for the first time then we are privileged to have your participation and I can assure you, without any risk of bias, you will have made an excellent choice!
