Due to the number of attendees, there will be an attendee signup for the wetlab for specific devices.  Please be thinking of which device you will want to trial.  Signups will be available at the beginning of the conference.  

In addition, attendees will have the ability to have a hands on trial of the HelpMeSee MSICS simulator.  This exciting development has the potential to change the learning curve for the mastery of manual small incision cataract surgery for surgeons who are wanting to become involved in developing world cataract surgery.  Special one on one sessions are being scheduled now for those with experience in MSICS, to give valuable feedback for future development.  In addition, those interested in the use of hi fidelity simulation in education will want to be involved in a discussion on the future of this simulation at universities and other training centers.
