Dear friends and colleagues,
2020 is a sacred number for us, ophthalmologists and ophthalmic practitioners, and so is the year. By the year 2020, all people in the world, particularly the millions of needlessly blind, have the right to sight, and the main causes of avoidable blindness are eliminated.
One of the main elements for Vision 2020 is human resources development through education and training. As one of the most notable centers of ophthalmology and eye care in Indonesia, we fully support this element to achieve Vision 2020. It has been our tradition to continuously provide education and new insights in patient care as well as research in ophthalmology. Therefore, we have dedicated our extensive effort to deliver a great and memorable congress for the year 2020.
As the chairman of the 4th JECIM, I am very pleased to announce that this event will be held in February 6-8, 2020. Being the region’s preeminent meeting for ophthalmologists, JECIM 2020 will feature more than 50 international speakers to share knowledge and present the latest discoveries in various ophthalmic subspecialties. An attendance figure is anticipated to reach 1,000 delegates.
World-renowned experts and respective speakers from four continents and more than ten countries will gather at the 4th JECIM 2020 to share their knowledge and experience. From scientific sessions, didactic courses and hands-on workshops, to plenary sessions, we have prepared a comprehensive program for our delegates.The 4th JECIM 2020 also provides delegates with an excellent occasion to establish network and collaborate with peers and friends.
Moreover, JECIM 2020 is also held in conjunction with the 4th World Congress of Ophthalmic Anesthesia (WCOA), the largest and leading event in this field. This event will feature proficient and skillful experts from all around the world. We believe this event will benefit both anesthesiologist and ophthalmologist.
On behalf of JECIM committee, I would like to knowledge ASEAN Association of Eye Hospitals (AAEH) for their cooperation thus have made this meeting possible. We wish to extend our highest appreciation to Indonesian Ophthalmology Association (IOA) and ARSAMI for their substantial and generous support.
Once again, I am beyond delighted to welcome you to this congress. So, be prepared and be captivated with everything that we have organized. Let’s bring science andfriendship to the 4th JECIM 2020 and celebrate the year of vision!
With warmest regards,
Setiyo Budi Riyanto, MD
