Delegates must wear their badge at all times. You will be asked to swipe your badge when you visit the registration desk on arrival (once only) and into the entrance to all Congress sessions. Please assist the stewards by having your badge ready. Please note that badges will be encoded for each day so you will not be admitted if you have not registered for that day.

Congress App
RCOphth Congress is going paperless again with an app in 2017 so, as in 2016, you will no longer receive the printed programme or Congress bag. All of the content of the programme will be found within the app plus much more (for full details see the app tab on the Congress website). The app will be greatly improved from its introduction last year and can be downloaded in advance for IOS, Android or any Windows device including your laptop free of charge, even before you have registered.

The language of Congress is English
