In light of the current developments related to the coronavirus, the international ZEISS Symposium 2020 "Optics in the Medical World" has been postponed until next year. It was set to take place on 17 June 2020 in Oberkochen. However, the symposium will still focus on innovations and applications related to photonics and digitalization in medicine.
This decision was prompted by planning uncertainty, and was made above all in the interests and for the protection of the guests, keynote speakers and all others involved. ZEISS will provide you with more information about the new date for 2021 in advance.
