International SPECTRALIS Symposium (ISS)
Happy Birthday ISS!
15th Anniversary of the International SPECTRALIS Symposium
Let's look back together…
…and look forward to ISS 2019 in Seoul!
The 16th edition of the successful symposium and expert forum featuring leading retina and glaucoma specialists took place Oct 12-13, 2018 at the former plenary chamber of Germany's Parliament, World Conference Center Bonn. The 17th International SPECTRALIS Symposium (ISS) will take place on October 18-19, 2019 at SIGNIEL Seoul, South Korea. The focus of the meeting will be on the knowledge transfer about all applications of the SPECTRALIS product family. Scientific Course Director will be Professor Seung-Young Yu from Kyung-Hee University Hospital, Seoul.
Over the years, Heidelberg Engineering Academy events have become known for their atmosphere of vibrant scientific exchange. The scientific program includes a broad spectrum of presentations and interactive sessions from experienced users. Participants interested in the latest developments in ophthalmic imaging will be able to take home new ideas and concepts for clinical practice. Free papers are welcome! Experience high level scientific lectures in South Korea's vibrant capital city.
