September 2017


Dear Colleagues:

The ICO is excited to share that we are expecting more than 15,000 delegates from over 130 countries to attend the 2018 World Ophthalmology Congress® (WOC2018) on 16–19 June 2018, in Barcelona, Spain. The Congress will offer ophthalmologists a scientific program with over 350 sessions addressing all subspecialties and related interests in ophthalmology. We will have 45 subspecialty, 39 national, 5 regional and 4 supranational societies contributing to the program and greatly appreciate your participation.

The following information is requested of your Society:


  1. ICO Member societies are asked to appoint an ICO Representative to attend the General Assembly. Your society’s Representative is eligible to receive one complimentary registration. The Representative should be a leader of your society, preferably the society president, who will attend the ICO General Assembly in Barcelona and provide a report back to your society members. Important note: Please remember that if your society’s representative is also a WOC2018 invited speaker, they must register by 1 November 2017.
  2. Because your society is an ICO Member, each of your individual members will receive a discounted registration rate.
  3. Ophthalmologists will save €90 by registering for WOC2018 before 13 December.
  4. Click here to book your hotel or view available hotels.
