Welcome Note

– Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organising Committee I am delighted to invite you and your team to join us in Dublin as we host Vision2020 the 13th International Conference by the International Society for Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation, to be held from the Sunday 12th – Thursday 16th July 2020 in The Convention Centre Dublin – Ireland.

This is going to be a truly unique conference where the leading practitioners in Low Vision Research, Rehabilitation and Vision Impairment will meet to share current thinking and introduce future thinking in order to achieve the best practice for Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation throughout the world.

We endeavour to create a programme which reflects innovation in current practice and encourages reflection and shared learning.

Through this programme we hope to achieve a greater sharing of knowledge internationally to move Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation practice onto the next level.

An international faculty of practitioners, researchers and educators will ensure that this will be an outstanding conference that will meet the needs of all delegates.

Finally, I warmly welcome you to a wonderful city and excellent venue, where there will be several opportunities to network and discuss Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation.

Yours Sincerely
