Welcome By the President of the COOC
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The 14th Congress of Ophthalmology and Optometry China (COOC2014) welcomes you the breathtaking city south of the Yangtze River at early spring! The major characteristics of COOC are clinically oriented, encouraging innovation, and promoting translational medicine，all of which centered around the clinical ophthalmology and vision science. The organizing and program committees have worked hard to developed an innovative and comprehensive scientific program which contains a variety of classic events, including cutting edge International Orthokeratology Conference, Grand Rounds in medical and surgical case management, symposiums on new technology and treatment in ophthalmology, and “What’s hot” in the field of Optometry, etc.
Moreover, the organizing committee developed two innovative programs. One is that besides from the keynote lecture from esteemed master, young clinicians who published on top international journals will be invited to give a speech at the opening ceremony, which symbolizes the waves behind rides on the ones before at the Yangtze River. The other is a seminar on how to plan and apply for clinical and research grants in ophthalmology. The invited senior experts who actively involved in grant review will give speeches on how to plan and write a grant. All the attendees are welcomed to this workshop with their own preliminary project, grant in draft or any related questions. The experts will be available for consulting and critical review. We believe that with these programs, it will be very helpful for young clinician to improve their clinical techniques and research ability.
We sincerely hope that you will find the meeting stimulating, highly informative, and personally rewarding. Thank you for joining us at the 14th COOC.
All the best wishes to you and your family,
