EuCornea President Jesper Hjortdal
Announcement of Virtual Meeting
First and foremost, I hope you and your families are safe and well in these extreme times.
Across the world, we are dealing with unprecedented challenges to all aspects of our daily lives. As ophthalmologists, this includes how we continue to look after our patients, manage our clinics, and also how we will continue to meet in order to share our scientific knowledge and research.
After careful consideration, it is with great regret that the Executive Committee of EuCornea have decided that for the health and safety of all involved, it will not be possible to hold our Annual Congress as a live event in Amsterdam in October. However, we are pleased to announce that we will instead hold a virtual congress on Saturday 26th September 2020.
We are delighted to host an exciting and meaningful virtual event that will offer alternative ways to participate in an interactive environment. Our annual congress attracts approximately 1,000 delegates worldwide and it is our hope that the virtual meeting will offer a truly outstanding experience for all participants and the opportunity for more colleagues to join us.
We will announce further details about the virtual meeting early next month.
If you submitted an abstract for the Amsterdam Congress, we will contact you over the coming weeks. We will continue to update the EuCornea website so you can stay informed!
I looking forward to welcoming you to our 2020 virtual congress.
