We are pleased to welcome you in Alicante for the fourth edition of the European Retina Meeting.
The ERM is a biannual meeting held in different European countries every edition. The goal of ERM is to bring together retina specialists from all over the world to facilitate a wider exchange of ideas and concepts and to evoke stimulating discussions about the complex mechanisms that underlie retinal processing and diseases.
This year, the meeting venue is the Meliá Hotel in Alicante Spain, located between Postiguet Beach and Alicante marina, near the well-known Paseo de la Explanada, the historic and commercial centre of the city and Santa Bárbara Castle.
The conference dinner will take place in the beautiful Santa Barbara Castle. It’s one of the largest medieval fortresses in Europe and covers the complete summit of the Benacantil Mountain. Originally built by the Moors in the 9th century, the castle received its name from the conquest of King Alfonse the Wise that took place on 4th December 1248: Saint Barbara’s day. Over the following centuries it was developed and extended leaving it with three main areas all dating from different eras.
The province of Alicante hosts as many as six festivals declared to be of International Tourist Interest: the bonfires of San Juan on midsummer night in Alicante; the International Habaneras and Polyphony Competition in Torrevieja; the Moors and Christians festival in Villajoyosa and Alcoy; and the Elche Mystery Plays and the Palm Sunday Procession in the city of Elche. The town of Elche is also the site of the Palmeral de Elche palm grove, awarded the World Heritage designation by the UNESCO.
As in the previous editions of ERM, the response to the call for abstracts was overwhelming: 180 retina researchers from 22 countries registered for the meeting. Apart from the 9 keynote lectures, 22 abstracts were selected for an oral presentation and 95 poster presentations were programmed. A total of 30 posters were selected also for a short oral presentation.
We are very grateful for the generosity of our sponsors, without whom this meeting would not be possible.
We are looking forward to an exciting meeting, with lively and stimulating discussions and we hope you will enjoy the meeting.
