ICO WOC 2018 Detail Modern Building
WOC2018 - JUNE 16-19, 2018 - BARCELONA

Dear Colleagues:

Do you want to present your work at the World Ophthalmology Congress® next summer in Barcelona? Start preparing now to submit an abstract on a great trial you are involved in or perhaps a series of cases you evaluated. How about presenting a new technique that you have discovered or even sharing that one special case with your colleagues. Do you have anything unusual happening in your part of the world to share? We want to hear about all of your exciting discoveries!

Important Dates:

- Abstract Submission Site Opens: 21 August 2017
- Abstract Submission Deadline: 1 December 2017

WOC2018 offers a wide variety of presentation formats. Presentations can be short talks best suited for case series (free paper sessions), poster pods (discussion focused), or electronic poster presentations (great for cases with interesting photographs). If you wish, organize an instruction course with your peers! Want to try something different? You can also submit a video presentation to be considered for part of the WOC Barcelona International Film Festival.

My best advice for abstract acceptance is—FOLLOW THIS FORMAT: Introduction, Materials, Methods, Results and Conclusion. If you want to present a new technique or comparative case series, make sure to present statistics as well. Write a concise introduction, state in the conclusion why your findings are relevant and make sure you write in clear English or Spanish. And remember, wherever you are, share your data!

The extraordinary mix of international attendees is what makes the World Congress the World Congress! I hope you will be part of it.

We Want To Hear From You - Submit Your Vote!

Question: The WOC2018 Mobile App will include all session details with links to the full abstracts along with floorplans, speaker lists, etc (computer stations will also be available for those without smartphones or tablets). In addition, we will have a pocket guide. Knowing this, would you still like to receive a full printed Program Book on site?

- No, I don’t want to carry around a 400 page book
- Yes, I can’t live without it

Results from the poll will be published in next month's WOC mailing. Please note: the survey is only live for newsletters sent via email.

Last month, we asked: What do you think is the best format to learn best practices for effective patient safety that may be offered at the WOC? Oral lectures with ample audience interaction time received the most votes.
