Dear friends and colleagues,
On behalf of the ECVO, we are excited to welcome you to our first hybrid meeting in the pretty city of Salzburg, where we can meet in person and online in June for the 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting at the Salzburg Congress.
Salzburg is situated in Austria, near the German border with views of the Eastern Alps. The river Salzach runs through it and divides it into the Altstadt (Old City) on the left side and the Neustadt (New City) on the right side. The Altstadt is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site with its medieval and baroque buildings. It is well known as the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, for its world-class Salzburg Festival, a series of opera, concerts, and theatre performances, and as the place where the movie “The Sound of Music” was filmed.
Our Scientific Committee, led by its Chair, Richard McMullen, has created a 4-day meeting on ocular neoplasia.
It begins on Thursday with the Continuing Education Program on ocular neoplasia. The topics range from diagnostics to chemotherapy and histopathology to surgery. They will be presented and discussed by a group of seven speakers, all experts in their respective fields related to ocular neoplasia.
On Friday and Saturday, the Scientific meeting continues with presentations on the podium and in poster format. Saturday’s State-of-the-Art Lecture will be given Prof. Sarah Coupland, a world-renowned pathologist and first female “George Holt Chair of Pathology” at the University of Liverpool.
The final day of the conference is the Masterclass on Sunday. Lectures will be given in the morning and an exciting wetlab on histopathology and orbito-facial reconstruction will be held in the afternoon.
The interactive Hereditary Eye Diseases (HED) session will be conducted once again with advanced response technology (Kahoot). Hear what is new on the topic of HED and test your diagnostic skills.
We are very thankful to our three local organizers, Hannes Meissel, Petra Benz and Barbara Nell, for their help and the distinctive Austrian touch they have added to the meeting.
Welcome, enjoy the meeting, and all that Salzburg has to offer!
