On behalf of ARVO, its India Internation Chapter Affiliate — the Indian Eye Research Group (IERG-ARVO-IC) — and the Ophthalmic Research Association of the Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Science, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi (ORA-RPC), we are delighted to host Asia-ARVO 2013 at the historic city of New Delhi, the capital of India, during October 28-31, 2013.
The announcement of this meeting has already met with an enthusiastic response from all corners of the globe, as vision researchers express interest in participating in this biennial vision research event.
Asia-ARVO 2013 brings together the best in vision research, amalgamating basic and clinical science, taking bench-top work to the bedside and onwards to the community. We are arranging a comprehensive academic program in which acknowledged experts in vision sciences will interact with young innovators and researchers, the leaders of tomorrow. We have therefore chosen the theme of Asia-ARVO 2013 as “Innovating and Converging Technologies in Vision Research.”
Asia-ARVO 2013 boasts of several “firsts,” such as live surgeries, wet labs, sessions for paramedical professionals in ophthalmic care, and an “India Gate” session for posters. It will be a knowledge hub for the integration of expertise from all over Asia and around the world, with something for everyone. We hope you will seize the opportunity to be part of this prestigious event. In keeping with the tradition of encouraging scientists and ophthalmologists in training, we plan to have as many as 50 travel grant awards to young vision scientists.
We invite you to mark October 28-31, 2013 on your calendar to join us in New Delhi.
