The 67th annual meeting of the Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists - Web conference version

The 67th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists is rescheduled, and will be held as a Web conference from July 1 to August 31, 2020. I would like to express my deep gratitude to all the speakers, related companies, and all those involved in the management of this Web conference.

Presently, I believe the most important priority is to take care of our health first and fulfill our obligations as medical professionals against COVID-19. The first Web conference is in line with the theme of the 67th annual meeting, "Anesthesiology in Futuristic Society". In the near future, it could be plausible that not only infectious diseases, but also various types of natural disasters can occur around the world. However, even under such circumstances, we will never lose the opportunity to brush up our skills and knowledges to offer high-quality medical practice and to advance medical science. Accordingly, this Web conference will be an accurate model of annual meetings in the futuristic society.

Based on time constraints on recording, safety on web distribution, and editing work, the annual meeting committee and I have selected the contents to deliver through the Website of the Web conference. All these contents are informative and valuable, and the programs can be selected at any time from the website, repeatedly.
I look forward to your attendance.

Hiroshi Morisaki MD
Chairman of the 67th JSA meeting
Professor of Anesthesiology, Keio University School of Medicine
