“Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Across the world we are dealing with extraordinary challenges to all aspects of our daily lives. As ophthalmologists, this includes how we continue to look after our patients and manage our clinics, and also how we will continue to meet in order to share our science and research.
After careful consideration, it is with great regret that the Executive and Trustees of the ESCRS, in agreement with our colleagues in EURETINA, EuCornea and WSPOS, have decided that for the safety of our members, delegates, industry partners and staff, 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 an online meeting, planned from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 October.
We are delighted to be offering an exciting and meaningful alternative which will offer ways to participate in an interactive environment. Our congresses attract delegates from over 120 countries worldwide and it is our hope that a virtual meeting will continue to offer a truly international experience in an unprecedented format for all participants, keeping up the high ESCRS scientific standards.
We will announce further details about the virtual meeting early next month. Please visit the ESCRS website and watch out for our weekly newsletter in order to stay up to date with developments. If you submitted an abstract for the Amsterdam Congress or have already been invited to participate in a session, we will contact you shortly.
I hope to see you online at our meeting in October. In the meantime, I hope you and your families stay safe and well.”
