On the 25th to 27th of August 2016, our Annual Scientific Congress of Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists and College of Anaesthesiologists was held successfully at Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur with many delegates from all over the country and abroad. The Obstetric Anaesthesia Satellite Meeting, a prestigious international event preceding the 16th World Congress of Anaesthesiologists in Hong Kong was also held in conjunction with our Annual Congress. Our objective was reflected by the theme entitled ‘Back to Basics’ to enable a relook at fundamental knowledge in anaesthesia besides keeping up with advances and progress in our field. A panel of international and local speakers who were experts in their respective specialties conducted workshops, lectures, case based discussions and plenaries centred on perioperative care to a packed three-day meeting. This year, we had many non-anaesthetic multidisciplinary topics apart from the usual specialties with speakers from radiology, cardiology, surgery, nephrology and nursing to share their views and improve future collaborative efforts in our clinical work. Research ideas were presented and discussed in the poster and oral free paper sessions to compete for the coveted Best Poster, MSA Award and MSA-AZ Young Investigator Award. Their submitted abstracts now form this special edition with our deepest gratitude to the editors of JUMMEC for making this possible
