We welcome you to join the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ECVO) at our Annual Scientific Meeting in
Berlin, 28th-29th May, 2010. This is a meeting open to everyone interested in animal ophthalmology, and will offer an opportunity to learn more about the latest developments in the field, disseminate the results of your basic or clinical research, and meet with colleagues who share your interests. Registration and call for papers opened January 1, 2010.

The ECVO meeting in Berlin will consist of a 2 – day scientific programme, with short communications from attendees, selected based on abstracts peer-reviewed by experienced ECVO Diplomates; “state of the art” lectures given by invited, well recognized speakers, and a special hereditary eye disease session with Frans Stades and Ellen Bjerkas as well as a poster session and trade exhibition.

The scientific meeting will be preceded by ECVO committee meetings and the ECVO Annual General Meeting (AGM). These business meetings will constitute the only part of the Annual Meeting that will be restricted to ECVO Diplomates. More information will be posted at as it is developed.

While you are in Berlin, plan to immerse yourself in its charms. Whether you visit the
Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag Building, the Berlin Victory Column, Television Tower or any of the numerous museums you are bound to see Berlin as one of Europe’s most exciting cities. Over the last several years Berlin has grown into a cosmopolitan hub that conference attendee’s relish. You may also wish to extend your trip to visit the romantic Heidelberg or the medieval Nuremberg, the lively port cities of Bremen and Hamburg, the financial center of Frankfurt, or the scenic lakes and atmospheric castles in the Black Forest

We expect that you will leave this ECVO event educationally satiated; curiosity gratified. This will be an excellent meeting and we encourage you to attend. As a departure from previous years, the ECVO will hold our meeting separate from the Society (ESVO). We apologize that you may need to make a choice this year. However, we are excited by the possibilities offered by our new meeting format, and we are all convinced that it will be an enjoyable meeting, of the highest scientific standard! See you in Berlin!
