The word from the President
Since its formal constitution, during the first SOIE meeting in Monte Carlo, Monaco in 2006,
SOIE has almost completed 9 years of existence. Since my last report in October 2013, we have remained very active in organizing
courses and symposia as well as presenting special interest symposia (SIS) at international meetings.
In the fall of 2011, a uveitis course and symposium was given in Vilnius, Lithuania. It represented the mainstay of the program of the national congress of the Lithuanian Ophthalmological Society. In 2012, SOIE took part again in the White Nights Congress in St. Petersburg, organizing a half day session on uveitis.
