ASCRS promises comprehensive educational agenda

March 1, 2006

All films and posters will be available on-demand electronically at 40 kiosks during the meeting.

San Francisco is a popular meeting venue. It offers many great restaurants, a temperate climate, lovely scenery, and lots of shopping, and ASCRS promises this year's event will be the "most educational and professionally fulfilling event ever." The symposium and congress will feature the latest techniques and innovations, hands-on skills training, extensive practice management educational opportunities, and diverse clinical and surgical staff offerings.

In what ASCRS is calling a major innovation, all films and posters will be available on-demand electronically at 40 kiosks during the meeting. This system replaces the previous film theater and poster display boards. The entries will be searchable by title, subject, and author/producer or item number. They will also be available after the meeting at http://www.ascrs.org/.

Friday, March 17

Two special educational programs will be offered on Friday-one on cornea and one on glaucoma (See sidebar). Registration is required to attend these events.

Shuttle bus service from all major hotels begins at 6:45 p.m. Tickets for the event need to be picked up ahead of time at the Moscone Center South Lobby Special Events Counter.
