It is my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 13th European Neuro-Ophthalmological Society conference. The members of the organizing committee are very proud to be hosting the conference in Budapest, the capital city of Hungary.
Undoubtedly, Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and is well known for its stunning views from the banks of the river Danube and its famous Széchenyi Chain Bridge.
The conference will be held at the Danubius Health Spa Resort Hélia, which is located on the East bank of the Danube River, and within short distances are famous attractions, such as the Hungarian Parliament and the Heroes Square.
Our aim is to provide you with the latest information in the field of brain and vision science with a focus on pathophysiology and therapy, introduced by internationally renowned experts.
Beside the scientific program and exhibition, there will be a number of exciting social activities to make your stay in Budapest pleasurable and memorable.
We look forward to hosting you in Budapest on September 10, 2017.

Randy H. Kardon, MD, PhD
Director, Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Visual Loss
He is the Director of Neuro-ophthalmology at The University of Iowa and has been an active clinician scientist for over 25 years. Additionally he is Director of the Iowa City VA Center for Prevention and Treatment of Vision Loss, funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs, which organizes a group of over 20 scientists and clinicians towards studying and researching optic nerve and retinal disorders that have relevance to the military population, especially in relation to traumatic brain injury (TBI). He has expertise in the physiology of the melanopsin containing retinal ganglion cells (MGC) in humans and in animals. Most recently, he has obtained funding and has published articles on using the pupil light reflex to measure the rod, cone, and melanopsin mediated pupil responses in humans and animals. Recently, they have extended their measurements to recording the EMG of the eye's squinting muscles and skin conductance in response to increasing intensities of red and blue light to objectively characterize photosensitivity in patients. Clinically, he also diagnose and works with patients and veterans with photophobia and headache following TBI. He has been collaborating with colleagues over the last few years on light mediated responses of the visual system. He also has a great deal of clinical expertise in photophobia and testing of visual function, including the pupil, besides my research and translational interests.

Botond Roska is the senior group leader at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Researchin Basel Switzerland, and project-leader for the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Molecular Systems Engineering, is a renowned expert in the structure and function of retinal circuits in health and disease. He is a graduate of Semmelweis University of Medicine, Budapest, and received his PhD from Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley. His work has contributed in both a fundamental and highly original manner to our understanding of the function of retinal circuits. In addition, he has used his knowledge of retinal processing and the newly available optogenetic tools to reactivate retinal function, at least partially, in mouse models of blinding retinal diseases. Together with scientist from around the world, but particularly the Vision Institute in Paris, he currently tries to bring this method of vision restoration to patients with retinitis pigmentosa, and other late-onset adult blindness diseases. Professor Roska is the recipient of the prestigious 2016 Cogan Award from the Association of Research in Vision and Ophthalmology .
