Top 5 Reasons to Attend WOC2018

1. Comprehensive Scientific Program
The World Ophthalmology Congress® of the International Council of Ophthalmology will include a scientific program of over 350 sessions addressing all subspecialties and related interests in ophthalmology. 82 ICO Member societies (46 subspecialty, 36 national) and the four major supranational societies will participate in the scientific program, offering a global perspective on the latest scientific advances, innovations, and best practices. With over 15,000 delegates expected to register from over 130 countries, this Congress is a must-attend event.

2. Ideal Location
Travel and Leisure Magazine explains that the best time to visit Barcelona is in June and boasts, "With its cosmopolitan feel, relaxed pace of life, breathtaking architecture, fantastic gastronomy, and unbeatable climate, it really is the city that has everything."

3. Program Enhancements
New and exciting events have been added that increase your opportunities to connect, learn, and share:

  • Wetlabs New to WOC: A minimum of 10 Wetlab courses (glaucoma and cornea confirmed to date) will be offered over all four days of the Congress. These hands-on courses allow you to participate in surgical skills training utilizing the latest technology and equipment available.
  • WOC Breakfast Club - CME Eligible: Experts will lead discussions on hot topics and the latest trends in a casual and sociable environment over breakfast. The intent is to encourage participants to question assumptions and fully engage in the learning experience.
  • Interactive Poster Pods: Four Poster Pods with interactive E-Poster presentations will rotate throughout each day June 17-19. This is all in addition to 48 Free Paper sessions, 60 submitted Instruction Courses, E-Posters, and E-Videos all programmed from submitted abstracts and scheduled all four days of the Congress.

    The list of speakers and topics for the Wetlabs and WOC Breakfast Club will be set later this summer and added to the registration process.

4. CME Accredited
The WOC2018 is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and is designated for a maximum of 24 CME credits (the final number of credits to be set later once the entire program is complete). You will have the ability to gain even more CME credits by purchasing the WOC2018 OnDemand.

5. Impressive Exhibition Hall
A vital part of your WOC2018 experience can be found in the Exhibition Hall, which will feature 200+ exhibiting companies and organizations — one of the largest gatherings of innovative ophthalmology products and services shown under one roof. Don’t miss this opportunity to see and hear about the latest, cutting-edge products and services available for ophthalmologists.

Back by popular demand, the WOC Plaza inside the exhibition area will offer shopping opportunities from local artisans selling items of interest to participants visiting Barcelona. Other amenities and entertainment in the hall will enhance your experience when you’re taking a break from the scientific sessions. They include a WiFi cafe, charging stations, networking lounge, a photographer to take your complimentary professional portrait, and much more.
