Florence, September 22-25, 2010: 6th International Conference on the Tear Film & Ocular Surface: Basic Science and Clinical Relevance
This Conference is designed to:
- Assess critically the current knowledge and 'state of the art' research on the structure and function of tear film-producing tissues, tears and the ocular surface in both health and disease
- Promote an international exchange of information that will be of value to basic scientists involved in eye research, to clinicians in the eye care community, and to pharmaceutical companies with an interest in the treatment of tear film or ocular surface disorders
The attendance at the last conference, which occurred in Taormina, Sicily in 2007, exceeded that of the previous Puerto Rico 2004 Conference. More than 500 scientists, physicians and industry representatives from 30 countries, including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, England, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Poland, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, United States and Uruguay, registered as active participants.
