“Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Friendly old girl of a town
'Neath her tavern light
On this merry night
Let us clink and drink one down”

For those delegates old enough to remember, the city of Copenhagen has been immortalised in Danny Kaye’s song from the 1952 musical“Hans Christian Anderson”.

It’s a beautiful song and it captures the spirit of this wonderful city, the venue for the 2013 European Society of Ophthalmology Congress.

As SOE president Stefan Seregard points out this year’s Congress presents an excellent scientific programme in close collaboration with the European subspecialty, research and educational organisations in ophthalmology.

An outstanding set of invited speakers, including internationally renowned keynote lecturers Roger Hitchings, Tony Moore and Greg Hageman will address pertinent issues and update delegates on the current approaches to clinical problems.

The SOE Congress continues to grow in popularity and this year’s meeting has representatives from 96 different countries.  

 EuroTimes, the official news magazine of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons, is produci ng a newspaper capturing  the meeting highlights on Sunday June 9 and Monday June 10.

 The newspaper is free to all delegates and will be distributed at the Bella  Centre. You can also see the latest breaking news from the meeting at
