Welcome from the President

Dear ESCRS Community

We welcome you to the 26th Winter Meeting of the ESCRS, taking place live in Vilamoura in a face-to-face format!

After the successful Annual Congress, which took place in Amsterdam from 8-11 October 2021, this will be a renewed opportunity to reconnect, learn, and network! Virtual seats will also be offered allowing a more global attendance.

The confirmed dates at the Centro de Congressos do Algarve are: 18-20 February 2022.

Following the tradition of the ESCRS, the Winter Meeting takes place in a special setting, allowing a unique combination of attending a high-level programme whilst making the most of the warm welcome of the host destination, Portugal.

The hybrid component of the congress format will allow you to attend face-to-face while enjoying virtual access to the sessions you would have wanted to join but did not find the time to attend. The programme will feature a Cornea Day, a selection of Symposia and Free Paper sessions, Instructional Courses and, of course, the Young Ophtalmologists Programme. Wetlabs will be available again!

Preparations are well under way to adapt the scientific programme and congress experience to accommodate the necessary space needed for you to be able to fully participate either physically or virtually.

Please save the ESCRS Winter Meeting 2022 dates to your digital calendar by making use of the link found below.

I very much look forward to welcoming you in person to Vilamoura, in the beautiful Algarve!

President Elect, ESCRS
