Reykjavík, June 2022
Welcome to Reykjavík, the meeting place in the middle.
Here you find all the information you need about this special event, and how you can experience the unforgettable nature and bright summer nights in Iceland.
Together with the organizer of the Nordic Ophthalmology Congress 2022, we have prepared a unique experience at a parallel event in the field of ophthalmology and research.
The RIWC2022 is held at the same time and venue as NOK2022, is taking place. That makes this a very rare opportunity and a special reason to get together from 9 to 11 June in Harpa Music and Conference Hall in Reykjavík.
Being a part of a Retina International World Congress is an unique experience in optimism and inspiration – generated by bringing together some of the world’s foremost retinal scientists and clinicians along with the global leaders in patient advocacy and peer support.
On behalf of Retina Iceland and the organizing committee, we welcome you to Reykjavík and look forward to enjoying informative and interesting days together at the RIWC2022 conference.
