"Low Vision and the Brain"
4th International Symposium

24 – 26 November 2017 • Berlin, Germany

Invitation and Save the Date

Dear colleagues and friends
dear members of the Low Vision and Brain Community

It is my pleasure to cordially invite you to the 4th International Symposium “Low Vision and the Brain“, which will take place from 24–26 November 2017 in Berlin.

“4r-vision” is an international and multidisciplinary conference that will highlight diagnostic and treatment approaches that aim at modulating nervous system structure and function though rescue, regeneration, restoration and rehabilitation.  Besides the retina – with its 1 gram of tissue weight - the brain´s visual system (>100 gr) is also a target to offer new options for patient care. 4r-vison will showcase the recent paradigm shift of neuroplasticity and clinical science, clinical care, and industry innovations.

“4r-vision” is unique as it addressed the problem of low vision in an interdisciplinary manner from the perspectives of ophthalmology, neurology, molecular biology, neuropsychology, rehabilitation psychology, engineering, and technology.

We would like to invite you to actively support the congress by submitting your scientific paper on relevant topics related to the main topics next spring.

Main Topics 2017:
Neuroprotection and rescue
Brain and retina degeneration
Brain reorganisation
Neurotechnology and Drugs

Since the number of participants to this conference is limited, you may pre-register right now, initially without having to pay any fee yet.


We would welcome if you would distribute the following linked documents to others to help us raise awareness of this important conference. All documents are provided in a high quality. If you wish, ready for printing.
