Letter of the Presidents

From September 5th to 8th this year, we will hold the 36th Brazilian Ophthalmology Conference at the modern and comfortable facilities of the Federation of Industries of Rio Grande do Sul State (Fiergs) in Porto Alegre. We are programming a Conference with a dynamic format that will promote debate, exchange of experiences and updating in the most advanced areas of ophthalmology with the participation of the main Brazilian experts and outstanding foreign speakers. Porto Alegre, the capital city of Rio Grande do Sul state, is located at the geographical center of Mercosur, the common market of southern South America, thus leading to intense participation of colleagues from neighboring countries, particularly Argentina, Uruguay and Chile, thus making sure there will be a productive continental exchange.

Porto Alegre has excellent hotels and restaurants and is an attractive shopping hub. In early September the mild late winter days will be an irresistible invitation to visit the mountain area where the main attractions are the cities of Gramado and Canela with their German and Italian cuisine, clothes and typical handcraft and Caxias do Sul and Bento Gonçalves, which produce (and invite you to taste) the best wines in Brazil.

This is the Brazilian Ophthalmology Conference we are offering you: scientifically outstanding and as busy and attractive as its social program.

Italo M. Marcon and Jacó Lavinsky
