We’re delighted to announce that we will be hosting an event again next year as part of Eyecare 2020, provided in partnership with the University of Edinburgh.

To be held in Glasgow on Monday 20 January, the theme of the symposium and workshop will be 'AI and new technologies' in ophthalmology. 

Book now for a packed day of talks and workshops on artificial intelligence and the latest technologies in ophthalmology. Delegates will improve their knowledge of the possibilities of AI in ophthalmology and its implications for diagnosis of various conditions. There will also be workshops providing hands-on experience of taking and grading anterior images using a slit lamp and automated ocular analysis, and the chance to find out more about and try out the latest assistive technologies for the visually impaired.

Book HERE, selecting 'Eye News Ophthalmology Symposium'.

Chair of the event will be Eye News editor Professor Baljean Dhillon, while co-editor Professor Tariq Aslam will give the keynote lecture 'Willarobotstealmyjob.com'.

Other presentations will include:

  • 'Demystifying AI - Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask', David Hoyle, Senior Research Data Scientist, Manchester
  • 'The SCONe Project - creating a Scottish bioresource of retinal images' ,Professor Niall Strang, Research Lead, Vision Sciences Group, Glasgow Caledonian University
