2010 (Edinburgh)

The organising committee of the Annual Meeting of the British Oculoplastic Surgery Society (BOPSS) 2010 warmly welcomes you to the exciting city of Edinburgh. The meeting will be held from the 16th to 18th June at the historic Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh in the heart of the city.

We start off the meeting on the 16th June with the BOPSS Update Day for Consultants, Trainees and Non-Consultant career grade doctors. Topics discussed will fall into 3 categories; ‘The Challenging Eyelid’, ‘The Anophthalmic Socket’ and ‘Difficult Ptosis’. Invited experts will present their perspectives on topics related to these themes.

The Scientific Meeting on the 17th and 18th June will be a mix of free papers, posters, and round-table discussion with a new session of interactive debates which promises to be highly entertaining. We are pleased to announce that Professor Dinesh Selva from Adelaide, Australia is the invited keynote speaker.

Edinburgh, a UNESCO world heritage site is a city of elegant streets, cobbled alleys and spectacular views. The meeting venue, the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (www.rcpe.ac.uk), is a unique blend of the historic and modern with some parts dating back to the 1770s. It is located in the city centre, and is easily accessible by foot from both train and bus stations.

The welcome reception for all delegates will be held on the evening of Wednesday 16th June, at the Weston Link in the National Galleries of Scotland complex (www.nationalgalleries.org) This venue is located just off Princes Street, overlooking Princes’ Street Gardens and is a short walk from the College of Physicians.

The Gala Dinner on Thursday, 17th June will be held at The Hub (www.thehub-edinburgh.com), an Edinburgh landmark situated at the top of the Royal Mile close to Edinburgh Castle. This venue boasts a stunning combination of award winning contemporary design and classic Victorian architecture and will provide a dramatic environment for the dinner and ceilidh. We would advise you to book early as the event is likely to be oversubscribed.

We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh!
