On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Nordic Congress of Ophthalmology (NOK) we would like to welcome you to Reykjavik June 9th -11th 2022.
The congress will be held in Harpa, Reykjavik´s spectacular conference and concert hall, located by the harbor in Reykjavik center.
The program overview is available on this website. Iceland’s unique location between Scandinavia / Europe and America will join together leading ophthalmologist from both sides of the Atlantic ocean. Retina International World Congrees (RIWC2022) will be held at the same time and venue as NOK2022, making this a unique opportunity in ophthalmology and research.
Reykjavik Arts Festival will take place in the first two weeks of June. The festival is a biannual multidisciplinary festival with a special focus on new commissions and the creative intersection of the arts. It presents, to the widest possible audience, exhibitions and performances of contemporary and classical works in major cultural venues and unconventional spaces throughout the city.
Last but not least, the unspoiled nature of Iceland is here to welcome you. Currently, there is a volcanic eruption on the Reykjanes peninsula, creating a spectacular scenery only 60 minutes away from Reykjavik. This volcanic activity has very different characteristics from the flight disturbing Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 and does not affect travel or pose any danger to any infrastructure.
We look very much forward seeing you at NOK meeting in Reykjavik, 2022.
With best regards
Gunnar Már Zoega, Jóhann Ragnar Guðmundsson, Þóra Gunnarsdóttir
