About the Event
The congress attracted just under 500 delegates with representations of 43 countries. The 2012 ICASM scientific program addressed some major issues in current aerospace medicine practice in airlines, the military, medical retrieval, accident investigation, human factors, physiology and space. The theme of the Congress was: “Pushing the Aerospace Medicine Envelope”.
Delegates were given the opportunity to hear the opening keynote presentation from the Andre Allard Lecturer Dr. Jonathan Clark. Dr. Clark is Medical Director of the Red Bull Stratos Project, a manned stratospheric balloon freefall parachute flight test program, which in March 2012 successfully acomplished the first stratospheric freefall above 70,000 feet in the last 50 years. On the final day of the program, the John Lane Oration was delivered by Major Glenn Todhunter and the Patterson Trust Lecture by Professor Michael Bagshaw, held at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
The Welcome Reception was held at the Melbourne Convention Centre and the Congress Dinner was held at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Grounds.

The organisation throughout that the whole and rather complicated week of the event was most impressive.
Now that I am starting to be able to see over the top of my desk again after our lengthy spell in your wonderful country, I really feel I should let you know how much I appreciated and admired the work of you and your splendid team in support of the Melbourne Congress. The programme ran smoothly and apparently without a flaw, watched over by the constantly smiling, cheerful and positive team from Iceberg Events, whose quiet and friendly confidence left us in no doubt that everything was under control at all times. But I am aware, of course, that what we saw was only the tip of the ‘Iceberg’ and that a huge amount of detailed planning and hard work had preceded the event to ensure the polished and professional finish to the Congress that was achieved. The final result was certainly worth the efforts of all concerned and there can be no doubt that this most memorable Congress was a great success
I would also like to add a personal note of thanks from Helen and from me for the extremely thoughtful and efficient manner in which all our arrangements for the week were managed and communicated by you, Catherine and Kara, as well as for the friendly and helpful attitude of all concerned in the weeks running up to the Congress. Your efforts ensured that we were able to gain maximum value and enjoyment from the meeting and the social events, with the minimum of stress and concern, and we had a great time.
I wish you and the team continued success in the future.
With best wishes
Professor Tony Batchelor
President of the International Academy of Aviation and Space Medicine
