International Conference of Behavioral Optometry
BOAF report on the 7th ICBO 2014, by Stefan Collier
Theme: Vision is the Brain’s way of touching.
Unfortunately this wonderful event is already past. OEP foundation and BABO did a wonderful job. This event will always remain in my memory. So many colleaugues from all over the world shared Behavioral Optometry with each other. The organisation supprised the attendees with a Conference App. So before the Conference already started the attendees could already share with each other. Really, it was amazing. We saw old friends again and made new friends. Very young and dynamic delegations from Greece and Spain brought bright energy into the meeting. A very big and heart warming family feeling was spread. CSO organised a Syntonic dinner event where our dear colleagues Ulli Daszkiewicz and Hartmut Wander received their CSO-Fellowship. Also new collaborations between different association were made (example: BOAF and SIODEC). BOAF also presented their new upcoming BOAF-Family App, which soon will be available for the BOAF-members.
There are so many things that should and could be said about ICBO, but I will not continue, because I surely will forget some. The only thing that I can say is: "Who did not attend this 7th ICBO, really has missed something."
I must say, congratulations to OEP and BABO for everything what you have achieved. You served us a high cuisine menu with wonderful behavioral optometric ingredients.
All BOAF members express their gratitude to OEP and BABO and they just want to say one thing:"WELL DONE, THANK YOU"!
If you want to get an impression of the Conference just click on the ICBO image and you see a video made by Optometrytoday.
So now we have to wait another 4 years for the next ICBO wich will be in Australia in 2018. Looking forward!
