Word of the President

Dear IOIS members and esteemed Congress delegates,


I am delighted to welcome you all to the 14th meeting of the International Ocular Inflammation Society and 4th International Assembly of Ocular Inflammation Societies, which will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland, a human-sized charming European city. I am pleased to observe that with nearly 700 delegates, the 2017 edition would certainly be an unforgettable vintage. Bringing together all areas of ocular inflammation and infection respects the spirit of our Society as established by our founders. I am grateful to the Society for Ophthalmo-immunoinfectiology in Europe, its President Carl P. Herbort Jr and the local organizing committee for their tremendous efforts, great organization skills and generous hospitality, which will allow us to meet, discuss, exchange and debate on major topics of our subspecialties, in a friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere.

I would like to take this opportunity and acknowledge every member of the Assembly of Ocular Inflammation Societies for his active contribution to the success of the 2017 Congress. An outstanding scientific program has been minutely set-up by 17 IOIS sections and 33 National or international Societies to update you on aspects of our field in a rapidly evolving era. High priority was given to free papers and posters in order to encourage presentation of original data with a special attention to late breaking abstracts. All this would not have been achieved without the dedicated and invaluable help of Russell Read together with the scientific program committee.

The comprehensive course on Uveitis, organized by Quan Dong Nguyen and Carlos Pavesio, is in compliance with the educational goals of our Society and has been sponsored by the European Board of Ophthalmology.

IOIS evolves according to your expectations and our success depends on your continuous scientific support.

On behalf of the IOIS executive board, I look forward to seeing you in Lausanne, Switzerland, for another extraordinary Congress with major advances in diagnostic and therapeutic management of ocular inflammatory or infectious diseases.


Yours Sincerely,



Bahram Bodaghi MD, PhD
