The International Conference on Emergency Medicine (ICEM) is the annual conference of the International Federation for Emergency Medicine, held over a four day period in the month of June. The first ICEM was held in London in 1986 as a collaborative effort between the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM), the British Association for Emergency Medicine (BAEM), and the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP). The ICEM is the peak annual global emergency medicine conference, gathering emergency physicians and emergency care stakeholders from diverse backgrounds and health systems around the world. The conference is a popular event for sharing, networking, hearing world-class speakers and providing a window into the host’s region of the world.
