It is with great pleasure and privilege that I, in the name of the Organizing Committee of this conference, welcome you to the 13th Congresso Internacional de Optometria e Ciências da Visão (CIOCV’16).
The conference will take place in Braga at the Universidade do Minho, and it will be a great pleasure to have you all here.
We are already working on the preliminary Scientific Program. It will be a pleasure to consider and include different topics and speakers that will encompass different fields related to the Vision Sciences.
The number of scientific abstracts submitted to the CIOCV keeps increasing, making the CIOCV a perfect window to assess and present the scientific work being done in mainly in Portugal and Spain but also in other countries. This conference is then an opportunity to assess, discuss and promote the quality of the scientific work being done in the field of the Vision Sciences, fostering an encouraging and solid future to the Portuguese Optometry.
Once again I would like to say a big Thank You to all the participants that have been supporting us, increasing the importance and dimension of this event at a national and international level, making it a scientific event of reference.
Welcome to the 13th Congresso Internacional de Optometria e Ciências da Visão! To you all our greetings and our big Thank You.
With kind regards,
Madalena Lira, PhD
President of the CIOCV’16 Organizing Committee
