State of the Art Congress: Abstracts and ePosters

Each year the Society offers investigators and clinicians the opportunity to present their work in either a poster or oral format at our State of the Art Congress. Successful work in all categories will be published as a Journal of the Intensive Care Society (JICS) abstract (PubMed-listed) and reviewed by the Editorial Board. There is a significant conversion rate to full article publication in JICS.

How to Apply

Applications for 2023 will open ahead of our State of the Art 2023 Congress and more details will follow when available.

National Clinical Impact Award (formerly ACCEA)

Each year the Intensive Care Society is invited as a nominating organisation to support our consultant members with their national clinical impact award (formerly ACCEA). These impact awards recognise the incredible work intensive care and wider healthcare professions do to care for the nation and we are delighted to help support them through this process. 

How to apply

The next round of NCIA applications will open in line with the national governing body. Please keep an eye on the NCIA website for more information.
