The Principality of Monaco, the second smallest (2 km2) and the most densely populated country in the world, is located on the French Riviera. This small state (full United Nation voting member) is governed by the House of Grimaldi since 1297 and now by Prince Albert II. Monaco’s mild climate, splendid scenery, and upscale gambling facilities have contributed to the principality’s status as a premier tourist destination and recreation center for the wealthy and famous (more than 30% of the population are millionaires).

One can consider that the term «glamour» has been created for Monaco, since the Prince Rainier married the American actress Grace Kelly, the symbol of elegance, beauty and charm. All the charities or sport meetings are opportunities for stars and wealthy people to be seen on their yachts or in the sumptuous hotels of the Principality.

The Monaco Formula One Grand Prix, held annually in the streets since 1929, is widely considered to be the most prestigious automobile race in the world. This is why we selected this event to be the central theme of our congress that will be opened by His Serene Highness the Prince Albert II.

THE CONFERENCE CENTER:
THE GRIMALDI FORUM

The Grimaldi Forum Monaco is lying along the seafront of Monaco’s eastern “Larvotto” beach quarter, right next to Monaco’s beautiful Japanese Garden.

Combining elegance and sobriety, this 800-place auditorium is surprising in its adaptability. Whether you are hosting a convention or an automobile launch, it will fulfil all of your ambitions, particularly thanks to the stage’s integrated turntable.

CONGRESS TOPICS

SEARCHING FOR THE RIGHT WAY – THE RETINA GRAND PRIX

The search for truth is difficult. Different attack angles can be needed when truth refuses to  expose. This is why we try to change every year the congress format. This year it will be completely different:

During the first day, on Sunday, the qualifying rounds are dedicated to experts presentations. These 20, 40 or 60 minutes talks must explain the reasons why the expert selects a protocol, a machine or a product. Due to the restricted number of accepted talks, experts must explain clearly, in the abstract submissions, the different arguments of their presentations. The more convincing abstracts will qualify the expect to become the coach of the respecting team defending the same ideas.

On Monday and Tuesday, eight competitions, regrouping teams of contributory lecturers defending the same concept by 5 minutes talks, will take place on the stage. Each team, directed by a coach will fight other teams having different points of view, the Moderator controlling the chronometer. The audience will decide, by interactive voting, which team is the most convincing. We could then have a closer lock to the truth for the benefit of our patients.
