Network, Explore and Learn
ICCLC will provide plenty of opportunities to find out more from the experts during breaks and social functions as well as the chance to meet and catch up with colleagues. Additionally, delegates will have the opportunity to explore the exhibition area where the latest in anterior segment optical coherence tomography, axial length measurement, biometry, topography, aberrometry, advanced ocular surface imaging, MGD, tear film assessment and treatment, digital slit-lamps, imaging and more will be on display.
Hands-on opportunities will be available at the exhibition stands and in wet labs and workshops allowing you to ‘try before you buy’ with input from experienced users.
With myopia control featuring on the agenda, there will also be a number of myopia specific instruments exhibited and demonstrated during biometry and myopia workshops.
Poster sessions will run during the breaks and be displayed in the exhibition area with additional posters and images from the photo competition.
Of course, ICCLC would not be the same without some of the traditional fun for which it has become renowned. To this end the opening welcome surfin’ street party will be a perfect start with old friends, superb food, drinks, music and entertainment.
The final climactic Dark Side of the Moon Gala Dinner will be a night to remember. In this 50th year anniversary of Woodstock, ICCLC organisers have arranged a groove-licious, psychedelic night of peace, love and music with the legendary Melbourne band Superband, great food and more. The cost of the dinner has been subsidised so be sure to select the gala dinner option when registering and don’t forget to dress up in your coolest 1960s hippie outfit!
