Dear Colleagues,

Greetings from APVRS‐VRSI 2011.

It gives us immense pleasure to invite you to the VI Asia Pacific Vitreoretina Society Congress in conjunction with the XX Annual Conference of the Vitreoretina Society – India from 1st to 3rd December 2011 at the HICC, Hyderabad.

The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for retinal specialists to share information, exciting updates and developments with regard to the vitreoretinal field, related surgical techniques, diagnostics, and therapies. An additional advantage would be the hands-on workshops we are specially devising for residents and fellows.

The conference is also meant to accord a great networking opportunity in facilitating direct and intensive contact between the many experts in the field who would be participating in the event. This would be of particular benefit to our growing student and fellow community in paving the road for their future career aspirations.

As the organizers of this unique conference, we are delighted to be your hosts in the historical city of Hyderabad. We will do our best to fulfill the city’s legacy of traditional hospitality by making your visit comfortable and enjoyable.

The abstract submissions will open on May 1, 2011 (www.apvrs.org/2011). We encourage you to participate actively at the conference by involving yourself in all the various sessions, talks and discussions being planned for the event.

Your visit to the APVRS-VRSI 2011 conference would not be complete without visiting the local tourist attractions! We have designed exciting pre and post conference tours for you to make your trip memorable indeed.

We hope that you will join us in making this event a grand success, and we look forward to welcoming you in December 2011.
