>Engineering the Eye II: Imaging the Retina
>June 19-21, 2006
>National University of Ireland, Galway
>Co-organized by Applied Optics, Department of Experimental Physics, 
>National University of Ireland, Galway & Center for Visual Science, 
>University of Rochester
>This conference will bring together scientists engaged in the 
>discovery of retinal function, clinical researchers engaged in the 
>understanding and treatment of retinal disease, and engineers with 
>expertise in advanced optical techniques in retinal imaging. 
>Advances in the technology of optical imaging in the eye, such as 
>optical coherence tomography (OCT), scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, 
>two-photon and fluorescence imaging, and adaptive optics have opened 
>up new opportunities to advance our understanding of retinal 
>function and disease, and allowed new diagnostic techniques to be 
>By bringing scientists working in these related fields together for 
>the first time in a concentrated workshop environment, we hope to 
>stimulate new collaborations and progress, particularly in our 
>understanding of how new technology might accelerate our scientific 
>understanding of normal retina and retinal disease. The format of 
>the conference - 3 plenary papers, 20 invited talks, Evening 
>Discussion Sessions and a poster session, with plenty of time for 
>formal and informal discussions - is designed to encourage debate at
