5 reasons to attend the 8th OCT & RETINA FORUM 2024
1 Networking for future collaborations
Attending the 8th OCT & RETINA FORUM is an opportunity to build networks with other experts in the same or similar field of studies all around the world and to share thoughts on recent advances and technological breakthroughs. It is an opportunity to expand the knowledge that one has and upgrade performance in accomplishing institutional objectives. Conferences bring together people who share a common discipline from different parts of the world, bringing different forms of ideas which build into something greater.
2 Find out what’s new
It is vital to find out what’s new in your field of study to survive in an academic discipline. Congresses will keep you updated on new findings that have taken place. This is in fact one of the major reasons why one should attend an academic conference.
To have the possibility to submit an abstract that is an opportunity to make your work known, inform practice and/or education, and to establish connections with others in your field of interest. It should tell readers what you are going to present and interest them in learning more about your work — they may decide to attend your presentation, visit your poster or contact you based on it.
4 For people to meet you
It may not seem like a notable thing, but conferences are also a good way for people to meet you. Regardless if you are Head of an Ophthalmology Department or a second year grad student, or even presenting for the first time, you may meet someone at a meal, in the exhibit hall or wherever and within a few minutes, you can make a connection with someone that could dramatically impact your professional career. Conferences are another way to get your name and your work out there as you begin to establish yourself in your field of study. After almost 2 years of virtual meetings, this could be the first opportunity to start again to meet each other in a “face to face” congress.
