The format of the sessions is based around the idea that interaction between the speaker and the audience is important. The invited talks (sessions 1-4) will take 1 hour 15 minutes: 5 talks (10 minutes of presentation + 3 minutes for questions; 15 minutes total time per speaker), followed by 15 minutes of discussion. The last session will have a total time of 2 hours. The invited talks will take 45 minutes: 3 talks (10 minutes of presentation + 3 minutes for questions; 15 minutes total time per speaker), followed by a 1 hour long ‘Closing Keynote Lecture’ and a 15 minutes round table discussion.
Each session includes the presence of clinical investigators, mathematicians and technical researchers within the same panel. This approach reflects the interdisciplinary paradigm of the Congress and aims at providing the audience the widest viewing angle of the considered subject.
The following preliminary topics will be discussed in the different sessions:
- Age-related Macular Degeneration
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Dry Eye/Tear film
The poster session will be another important part of the congress to exchange knowledge, share ideas, get inspired and more!
