Оur highly-honored maculalogists and MACULAphiles!
Dearest retinologists and partners feeling sympathy to them!
Our dear colleagues!
With a deep sorrow and hopeless frustration, the organizing committee of "MACULA-2021" is regret to inform you that the meeting is postponed again due to circumstances that are beyond our control and due to growing(!) Covid-cordon restrictions.
Since a long time ago we have made an agreement, that on-line format is not about "MAKULA~on the Don", and we always have it "live", "eye to eye" and with open smiles towards each other, our pleasant meeting at round tables in Rostov (August 20) are to be postponed again (((
The delay is until spring 2022 (May 20-22) – if God wills!
We are returning the registration fees! We are saving the program (at least for 70-75%).
In case you would like to supplement your report with "up-to-date" data – you are welcome! In case you decide to change the subject, please send us the new report – according the ordinary rules – for “blind” evaluation of the organizing committee.
All this is until February 13, 2022.
Other details you will find on our website (interyuna.ru) no later than in autumn 2021.
=Yuriy and a disappointed organizing committee
But we are not discouraged! We’ll anyway survive!!!

The network of 7 Round Tables supposes to discuss more than 30 reports of leading scientists.
More than a third of these are reports and microlectures by our colleagues from Western
Europe and Northern America.
Abstracts of the reports are admitted until February 25
(The program of round tables for ¾ have been formed by May 2020, but the admission of new
reports is still open - until February 25)
Requirements for the articles:
An article can be written in a relatively free style, and preferably certified by signature of the scientific supervisor and the seal of institution. Be sure to provide digital media (CD, DVD) or sent it by e-mail in Microsoft Word format with the extension of DOC or RTF. Volume is up to 3 pages A4 (including references). The text should be typed with one font (Times New Roman, size 14) without equalization
and transfers of words and printed at 1,5 line interval and 2 cm fields from each side. List of literature and References – "petit".
The article should contain a summary in English of up to 1.5 thousand signs.
The article should be accompanied by photos arranged electronically: 1) a portrait of the speaker; 2) photos of all the co-authors together – for the presentation in the conference room before the report.
The photo style is free, (resolution of the photos is at least 1024 x 768)
Presentation of reports is to be standard (multimedia format: Power Point 2007, 2010, 2013, PDF), but all the inscriptions on the slides should have a translation into English, filled with other color (eg. the entire English text in yellow). Poor quality translation of the summary can be the basis of law rating in
"blindly" expert evaluation of reports by the organizing committee.
Besides, the organizing committee does not exclude, that a part of the reports (no more than 30), which were not ranked by the organizing committee into those discussed during the round tables, and having the ‘random’ points close to the passing level, could be presented as a stand presentation, and the best of them can be presented and discussed at the last day of MACULA seminar. Apart from everything, any seminar participant has an opportunity to express in advance his/her preference between a public and stand report, leaving the right for final choice to the organizing committee.
