As in previous years, the society intends to offer stipends to attending full members. The levels of stipend are still being considered as sponsorship is confirmed and as currency values alter. For reference, for the last meeting the levels of re-imbursement were 35%-55% of estimated costs, based on your position in the society (members, councilors and executive).

We are grateful to our confirmed sponsors for the 2015 meeting:

Alcon Laboratories, Inc
Gelest, Inc
Johnson & Johnson VisionCare
Menicon Ltd
Ophtec Ltd
Seed Co Ltd

The Wednesday is reserved for members and observers to the meeting to organize informal discussion groups and meetings.

This is the preferred accommodation as we have negotiated discounted room rates based on occupancy levels during the meeting.

The preferred room rate will be 95.00 Euros

This rate does not include government taxes of 22% (VAT 18% and city taxes 4%).

Unlike the last two meetings breakfast is not included in either the hotel room rate or provided by the ISCLR and is served in the Hotel restaurant (Peppers!) at 25 Euros.

Internet is included.

The meeting is taking place in Budapest in Hungary and you should schedule your flight to the Budapest airport (BUD):

Most major European hubs fly direct to this airport:

From the airport the best way to get to the hotel is by Taxi, a 15-20 mins ride.
