A meeting for everyoneA scientific meeting
Each Spring the ECVO holds its annual congress in a major European city and every year it is organized over 4 days around a central topic. The starting point of each congress is the Continuing Education day, which offers the opportunity to listen to presentations from the most prestigious, world-leading researchers and clinicians, and culminates in the interactive and always stimulating ECVO Practical Slide Session of Hereditary Eye Diseases. This is followed the two-day ECVO Meeting, which is comprised of numerous abstract presentations from all over the world and poster sessions. A State of the Art Lecture is one of the main highlights of the meeting and it is delivered by a special honorary guest, normally chosen among the most brilliant in the host country. The congress reaches its end with the ECVO Master Class sessions. A series of lectures on topics delegates can choose from and that sometimes include a wet-lab. Additional congress highlights include the announcement of the winners of the ECVO Grants, which fund research in areas of Veterinary Ophthalmology through ECVO Residents and ECVO Diplomates, and the ECVO Awards, which are given to the best scientific presentation and best poster.
A social meeting
The ECVO congress offers all of its delegates a great opportunity to meet friends from all over the world, make new ones, and visit representatives from the leading industry markets within a friendly and open atmosphere. Social events include a special reception, the ECVO Gala dinner, and the local culinary, historical and natural charm of the host city chosen each year.
