And I trust, you all will be thrilled to know that the venue chosen for this momentous occasion is the magnificent Biswa Bangla Convention Centre (BBCC) at Newtown, Rajarhat in Kolkata.
The Annual Conference as you all know will be a scientific extravaganza where we will not only showcase the best of Bengal but also bring together the best of the best from all over India. The program will provide a unique platform for presentations and discussions on cutting edge technology and advancing scientific research. Keynote lectures delivered by leading experts will be balanced with plenary symposia addressing topics with interdisciplinary interest. Free papers and poster presentations representing varied topics will vie for the many awards to be won. This will be an exclusive opportunity to join inspiring orations by the leaders in ophthalmic science.

The meeting is designed to encourage and provide opportunities for young specialists to present their work and to network with experienced mentors.
This conference is also being tailored to address the needs and match the expectations of all sub-specialities. To balance the academic grind there will be a number of sessions to up the fun quotient like Debate, Quiz and many more new ones. The evenings in addition to being the time to relax and unwind in fellowship, will also bring out a new talent amongst us in the form of an in-house Drama. There will also be the welcome presence of a large number of our valued trade partners in the Exhibition, where the latest trends and innovations are sure to lure you away from the lecture halls.
