Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 13th EURETINA Congress, which will take place at the CCH
Hamburg, from 26-29 September 2013.

To build on the enormous success of the 12th EURETINA Congress in Milan the Programme Committee of
EURETINA has compiled an exciting scientific programme for Hamburg. The meeting will once again host
many of the popular traditional features of the EURETINA programme, such as the EURETINA Lecture,
the Kreissig Lecture, Amsterdam Retina Debate and Fan Club.

Furthermore, the 13th Congress will see the introduction of the World Retina Day, scheduled to take place on
Saturday 28 September. With the input of leading National Societies from around the globe, the World Retina
Day will offer delegates a thoroughly international insight into medical and surgical retina. Societies already
enlisted in the World Retina Day include ESCRS, ASRS, the Asia Pacific Vitreoretinal Society, Club Jules
Gonin, the US Macula Society, Retinaws , EuroLam, the Vitreoretinal Society of India, the German Retina
Society, the Spanish Vitreoretinal Society, EVER, the French Israeli Society and the International Congress of
Ocular Oncology. I personally feel that this unprecedented level of international involvement will enhance the
EURETINA programme and bring to the next Congress an extraordinary opportunity for global networking.
As usual the latest developments in retina will be presented at 10 Main Sessions, while 27 Instructional
Courses and two days of Surgical Skills will accompany the all-day Uveitis and Retinal Detachment Courses
for delegates who prefer a more didactic approach to learning.

Free Paper sessions will be prioritised due to the high volume of abstracts received and the standard of
those reviewed. Electronic Posters and Video Presentations will once again feature with awards for the latter
being presented at the Opening Ceremony.

Finally, for the third year running, the EURETINA Innovation Award will showcase this year’s final shortlist of
innovative and creative applications to be reviewed and graded for their market potential. The overall winner
will be announced at the Innovation Award Main Session at the 13th Congress and further information is
available on the EURETINA website.

On behalf of the Board and Programme Committee of EURETINA I encourage you to join us in Hamburg for
what promises to be our most stimulating and memorable Congress yet.

Gisbert Richard
President of EURETINA and Chairman of the Programme Committee
