Words of the President

Invitation to the 15th Congress of the SEEOS to Szeged, Hungary, May 31 – June 02, 2018

Dear Friends, Dear Colleagues,


It is the greatest honour and pleasure for me to invite the SEEOS members to participate in the next congress of the South-East European Ophthalmological Society which will be held between May 31 – June 02, 2018 in Szeged, Hungary. This will be the 15th SEEOS Congress, so it will be a great anniversary, as well.

We are inviting all SEEOS members to hold lectures, present posters or videos in the 15th SEEOS Congress which will be a joint Congress with the Hungarian Ophthalmological Society. It will be an excellent occasion to meet again and also to meet other Hungarian colleagues and furthermore with some worldwide well known experts from Germany.

The 15th SEEOS Congress will start on Thursday evening May 31 with a welcome party. The scientific program will start next day morning (Friday June 1) and will finish Saturday afternoon (June 2).

Lectures, posters, videos are invited to present on any aspects of modern ophthalmology. There will be sessions dedicated to cornea and anterior segment diseases, medical and surgical retina, cataract, glaucoma, pediatric ophthalmology, neuroophthalmology, SEEARVO, HARVO and VISION2020 Symposium. The abstract submission will be early next year and we will let you know the deadline in due time. The abstracts will be published in the congress abstract book in printed form and also in electronic form in the www.seeos.eu website.

Besides the intensive scientific program, there will be several excellent social events due to the warm and friendly atmosphere of Szeged.

Szeged is a large university town. It is situated South in Hungary, and as it is very close to the Serbian border, it provides an easy access by car from many of the Balkan countries. Szeged is only 220 km from Belgrade and it takes around 2 hours by car on the highway A1 to reach from there. Szeged is around 170 km distance from Budapest, Liszt Ferenc Airport, and it takes less than 2 hours by car or less than 2 and a half hour by train.

On behalf of the organizing committee of the Joint Congress, I warmly invite you to participate and visit Szeged in Hungary next year.

Yours sincerely

Prof. János Németh
President of SEEOS
