Announcement

Due to Covid-19 pandemic, NOK 2020 – The Nordic Congress of Ophthalmology has been postponed until 2022

New dates are:   8 – 11 June 2022

Reykjavík, 2 April 2020

Dear Colleagues,

We regret to inform you that the Nordic Congress of Ophthalmology will not take place this year but has been postponed until 8-11 June 2022 and the location will be the same, HARPA Concert Hall and Conference Centre.  

As you are aware, the coronavirus pandemic has made it impossible to have an international congress. The health and safety of all our participants is of utmost importance. The NOK Committee has therefore concluded that the best option is to reschedule the congress to 8-11 June 2022.

There will be continued collaboration with RIWCthe 21st Retina International World Congress, so both congresses are planned on June 8-11, 2022.

We are very grateful to all who committed time to planning this year ‘s congress, the keynote speakers, moderators and authors of the free papers.
We are as well very thankful for the support of all our Sponsors and Exhibitors and hope to see you all in 2022.  

To all of you and your families, take care and stay safe.

We look forward to welcoming you in Iceland in June 2022.

On behalf of the organizing committee,
Gunnar Már Zoega & Jóhann Ragnar Guðmundsson

Please save the date for NOK 2022, 8 – 11 June in Reykjavík!
