We live in an ever faster moving but smaller world due to internet, digital innovations and social media. However, acquiring knowledge is not complete without the live interactions of your teachers, colleagues and representatives of innovative technology. Once every two years the highlight of European ophthalmology is celebrated during the SOE Congress. I am excited to announce Prague as the destination of the SOE 2021 Congress, the next European Congress of Ophthalmology from 10–12 June 2021.
A selection of the best lecturers and teachers in the world will share their knowledge over the whole spectrum of ophthalmology and the most recent state-of-art equipment and devices will be on display at the exhibition. Whether you are looking for the latest developments in ophthalmology or updates on subspecialties, SOE 2021 offers a world class scientific programme for all Ophthalmologists.
At the SOE 2021 Congress you will be able to meet with friends and make new acquaintances from some of the 100+ countries worldwide, which will be represented at SOE 2021. Prague, “the City of a Hundred Spires,” is renowned for its historic Old Town Square, with brightly decorated baroque buildings, gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock to name just a few of its treasures.
For three days in June 2021 we will make Prague the focal point of European ophthalmology and with direct flights from its airport to 165 countries, we look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be an inspiring meeting.
President, European Society of Ophthalmology
