The organising committee would like to welcome you to London for the 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting of the British Oculoplastic Surgery Society. This will be held on 21st – 23rd June at the Royal Society of Medicine in Wimpole Street in the heart of London.
The meeting will start on Wednesday 21st June and run for three days. We are delighted to have many national and international first-class speakers contributing to a comprehensive programme. There will also free paper presentations, eposters, debates, symposia and a trade exhibition.
We are thrilled to announce that Dr Raymond Douglas from the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center will share with us his expertise in treating thyroid-associated eye diseases and reconstruction surgeries, and Dr Vivian Yin from the University of British Columbia will share her experiences in the treatment of periocular and orbital cancer.
The venue for the meeting and the drinks reception is the home of the Royal Society of Medicine at 1 Wimpole Street, which boasts of over 100 years of history and contains a wealth of portraits, photos and treasures. The present building, to the designs of the Edwardian Baroque architect, John Belcher, was finally completed in June 1912 and King George V and Queen Mary officially opened it the same year.
1 Wimpole Street is conveniently located for delegates travelling from within London and further afield. It is moments from the hustle and bustle of the world famous Oxford Street.
Please note that this year’s meeting is well-attended, and as a consequence we will be using an overflow lecture theatre to accommodate those who cannot stay for a full session and who want to arrive late or leave early or during mid-session and also for those who want to chat / take calls etc. Those in the second auditorium will see / hear speakers as well as the slides, and will also get the opportunity to ask questions. We ask all delegates to fill the main lecture theatre quickly, using all seats and not to reserve seats with coats or bags etc as these will be removed. All speakers especially those in the free paper sessions should sit on the front row in the main auditorium.
