Official Statement from The SOE Executive Committee
SOE 2021 Congress – Cancellation and Announcement of SOE Webinar series
Due to the on-going pandemic and considering the changing travel restrictions across Europe and the world, the Executive Committee have come to the very difficult decision to cancel the SOE 2021 Congress as a face-to-face meeting. SOE propose instead to hold a series of webinars later in 2021 and will announce the full planned programme shortly.
Our next live meeting will be SOE 2023 from, Thursday 15 – Saturday 17th June 2023 and will remain in Prague at the Congress Centre. We look forward to seeing you all in person and sharing our common goals of bringing together European and International ophthalmologists in the continued education of general ophthalmology through live sessions and discussion.
The SOE Congress not only offers an excellent scientific programme but also significant networking opportunities and our priority is to hold a live event where we can all meet once again in safety and share our learning through live sessions and discussion.
We look forward to welcoming you to Prague in June 2023.
With very best wishes
Wagih Aclimandos, SOE President
And the SOE Executive Committee
