Dear colleagues and friends,
Like all people in the world we are closely monitoring the extremely complex epidemiological situation caused by Covid-19 and are very concerned over its global impact on our lives and economy. The World Health Organizations pandemic declaration, the closure of borders between countries, and constantly growing number of confirmed cases of the disease - all these clearly indicate the need to combine all efforts to resolve the crisis. The ongoing expansion of measures taken by most governments gives us hope for a successful outcome.
After much deliberation and taking into consideration your health, safety, and travel restrictions, we have decided to postpone the International Conference on Ophthalmology "East-West" to 3-4 June 2021. The Conference will be dedicated to the 95th anniversary of the Ufa Eye Research Institute and will be held in Ufa as always.
All applied reports and applications from our partners will be automatically transferred to the next year.
If you have other plans and are unable to join us, please inform our Organizing Committee.
All submitted articles will be published in Point of View. East-West Scientific Journal this year.
We are sincerely grateful to everyone who worked on planning the scientific program of the Conference "East-West-2020", "Live surgery", WetLab courses and the exhibition. We are confident that we will be able to compensate for the lost opportunities and hold even more large-scale events in the future.
We sincerely wish you, your family and all your colleagues sound health, good spirits, creative success, happiness, and fulfillment of kind intentions!
We express our sincere gratitude for your understanding and hope to strengthen existing ties and meet on the hospitable land of Bashkortostan!
Please feel free to contact our Organizing Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
Chairman of the Organizing Committee,
Director of the Ufa Eye Research Institute,
