For over 60 years, SAIC annual meeting has been organized as an International Scientific Meeting hosting more than 1200 people. Its main activity is the dissemination and constructive discussion of original scientific work, presented as Oral Communications or Posters. It also includes Conferences and Symposia with national and international leading figures.
At the very beginning, SAIC tried to join together research work, particularly clinical, but soon after basic researchers in biomedical sciences also found in SAIC a propitious environment to discuss their results.
Today, more than 500 Abstracts (refereed) in more than 15 topics in Biomedicine are presented every year.
The scientific evaluation of Abstracts is performed by referees in an anonymous way.
The accepted abstracts are published free of charge in a special issue of the international renowned Buenos Aires Medicine Journal.
In line with its aim to foster the education and development of new scientists, SAIC offers travel grants so that young investigators are able to attend the meeting, present their results and discuss them with experts. In addition, there are special fees for young investigators, graduate and undergraduate students. Awards for outstanding scientific work at different levels are also given.

All over the year, Genetics, Ethics and Education Committees organize courses, symposia and workshops across the country with national and international guests from different fields.
