    We are very pleased to announce the 7th International Fluid Academy Day, which will take place on November 23rd 2018 at Pakhuis De Zwijger in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (Faculty: Pietro Caironi, Maurizio Cecconi, Luciano Gattinoni, Robert Hahn, Monty Mythen,...). The aim of this seventh edition is again to review recent advances in fluid management, and hemodynamic and organ function monitoring in the critical care setting in a comprehensive manner for intensivists, anaesthesiologists and emergency physicians as well as interested internists and surgeons. However the meeting will deal with any broad topic related to critical care. As always it is also a great way to promote professional interaction between faculty members, participants and delegates of the industry. On November 24th post-IFAD courses will be organised: 5th CACU (Critical and Acute Care Ultrasound) course (Faculty: Adrian Wong, Daniel Lichtenstein, Jan Poelaert, Xavier Monnet, Pieter Tuinman...); 1st Acid-Base Masterclass (Faculty: Luciano Gattinoni, Pietro Caironi, Tom Langer, Paul Elbers, Niels Van Regenmortel,...) and 2nd ECMO hands-on cannulation course (Faculty: Dinis dos Reis Miranda).
