animal ophthalmology, and will offer an opportunity to learn more about
the latest developments in the field, disseminate the results of your
basic or clinical research, and meet with colleagues who share your
interests. Registration and call for papers opened January 1, 2010.
The ECVO meeting in Berlin will consist of a 2 – day scientific programme,
with short communications from attendees, selected based on abstracts
peer-reviewed by experienced ECVO Diplomates; “state of the art”
lectures given by invited, well recognized speakers, and a special
hereditary eye disease session with Frans Stades and Ellen Bjerkas as
well as a poster session and trade exhibition.
