The Annual Scientific Congress:
The ASC consists of plenary and concurrent sessions for sections. Each participating section invites an eminent authority as a distinguished visitor, around whom the specialty program is built. Distinguished visitors are selected from overseas or within Australia.
The ASC is held over four days and provides ample opportunity for inter-disciplinary as well as specialised discussion.
The first general scientific meeting of the College was held in Canberra in 1928. Since then, meetings have been held annually, with the venue rotating through the main cities of Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
