Dear Friends,

On behalf of ISCCM [Indian Society of Critical Care Medicine] Pune Branch, we are pleased to invite you for the 8th Annual "BEST OF BRUSSELS" Symposium on Intensive Care & Emergency Medicine to be held on 17th - 19th July 2020, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Pune INDIA.

ISCCM Pune Branch and The Department of Intensive Care Medicine, Erasme University Hospital, Brussels have come together to conduct this symposium, consisting of a select set of presentations made at the preceding ISICEM, Brussels. Eminent faculties who will have participated in ISICEM at Brussels in March 2020 have been invited, & this symposium will only contain exclusively selected presentations made at Brussels.

The 24th Annual Mechanical Ventilation Workshop, Hemodymanic Monitoring Workshop, Ultrasound in ICU Workshop & an ENLS workshop will be held on 15th & 16th July 2020.

This year we invite you to participate & present your case during the symposium, and exchange ideas at this year's case presentation session on sunday 19th July. The day promises to be filled with thought-provoking, absorbing and (perhaps) controversial presentations and discussions.

The Symposium will contain Plenary Sessions, Pro-Con Debates, Keynote Addresses, Industry Sessions & a JAMA Session, where in JAMA simply means Just Ask Me Anything. It will be a truly interactive open live forum with all international faculty members on the dais, wherein there will be No Presentations, No talks, No debates, just an hour-long Q&A session with world renowned professors.

Join us in Pune in 2020, for the "Best of Brussels", the very best in the world of Critical Care.
