Invitation to the Oslo Aniridia Conference

Aniridi Norge logoAniridi Norge (the Norwegian aniridia association) has organised the first European scientific conference about aniridia as well as an international gathering for the aniridia community. You are invited between 8 and 10 June 2012. James and Katie from Aniridia Network UK plan to be there.

Sunday 10 June

On this day there will be a programme tailored to families and individuals with aniridia – including children and young people. It costs £73 (Norwegian Krone 650) including lunch and refreshments. There’s an opportunity for an eye examination too. Places are limited so it is primarily for the Norwegian delegates. But to request a slot, send an email conference2012@aniridi.no stating: the patient’s name, age, visual diagnosis and an explanation of why they should be offered an appointment – no later than 31 March 2012.

Friday 8 and Saturday 9 June

There will be a traditional conference for medical professionals on these days. The language will be on a rather high technical medical level. However, non-professionals who want to watch and listen (they may not get involved in discussions or ask questions), are welcome to do so. The fee for non-professionals for these two days is £146 (NOK 1300) including lunch and refreshments.

Aniridi Norge will hold their annual meeting in Oslo on the same weekend. Everyone is most warmly invited to participate in it, exchanges of experiences and social activities. They will try to be as flexible as they can and have some activities in English.

There is no cost for participating in the aniridia community gathering if you do not take part in the conference programme. Unfortunately there is no possibility of subsidising any attendance or participation by international guests.

Rooms have been reserved for members of the aniridia community on 8 and 9 June at the Rica Holberg Hotel, starting at about £108  per night. You can book these through the registration page. If you are a wheelchair user, to book email liv.torunn.berg@meeting-management.no and explain this. The conference activities will be at the neighbouring Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel.
