We live in an ever faster moving but smaller world due internet, digital innovations and social media. However acquiring knowledge is not complete without the live interactions of your teachers, colleagues and representatives of new technology. Once every two years the highlight of European ophthalmology is celebrated during the SOE Congress.
I am excited to announce Barcelona as the venue of the SOE 2017 Congress, the next European Congress of Ophthalmology on 10 -13 June, 2017. A selection of the best lecturers in the world will share every conceivable aspect of ophthalmology and the most recent state-of-art equipment and devices will be on display at the exhibition. At the SOE 2017 Congress you will be able to meet with your friends and to make new acquaintances from some of the 150 countries worldwide which will be represented in Barcelona.
The charming harbor city is easily accessible from all parts of the world.
As a former Olympic site this vibrant international city is visited by more than 8 million people every year. For four days in June 2017 we will make Barcelona the focal point of European ophthalmology and we expect nearly every tenth European ophthalmologist to attend the meeting.
There is so much more to Barcelona than Paella, Sangria and Tapas. Indeed, we will treat you with a huge buffet featuring a wide range of ophthalmology dishes. This will no doubt serve as some serious food for thought. See you in Barcelona, in June 2017!
