Closing SIYO 2022

As you know, today (November 28th) is the last day of SIYO 2022 in which we hope you have had the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and develop new scientific communication skills with optometrist colleagues from different universities in an international level.

First, from the organizing and scientific committee we want to thank all the speakers and attendees for your participation with all your contributions without which we would not have managed to carry out this beautiful project.
Secondly, we want to remember that today is the last day in which questions and comments can be made in the forums to meet the conditions to obtain the assistance certificate. Those who have not contributed to the required number of comments still have time throughout today. Access to see the answers will be available until December 15th.

Finally, you still have the Congress satisfaction questionnaire available, which is also a requirement to obtain an assistance certificate and will be useful to know your degree of satisfaction and receive your feedback with the intention of improving those aspects to guarantee an optimal operation in future editions.

We hope it was to your liking.
Thank you very much.
Best regards,
The SIYO 2022 Organizing Committee.
