Call for Abstracts for Academy 2018 San Antonio Scientific Program

The Scientific Program Committee of the American Academy of Optometry invites the submission of abstracts for Academy 2018 San Antonio, to be held Wednesday, November 7 through Saturday, November 10. The Academy's Scientific Program offers scientists, educators, and clinicians the opportunity to exchange the latest information in optometry and vision science in two formats, research paper presentations and scientific posters.

"The annual meeting of the Academy is a great forum to showcase your recent scientific and clinical findings in optometry and vision science, and we encourage authors to submit abstracts for both oral and poster presentations," says Suresh Viswanathan, MS, PhD, FAAO, Chair of the Scientific Program Committee.

The abstract submission window will be open from May 1 through May 31, 2018. This year, the Scientific Program Committee will present focused sessions on special topics that will include extended discussion, integration of clinical topics, and debate on current controversies. As a new feature this year, images can be uploaded along with abstracts (1 MB limit).

The Scientific Program Committee will consider all presentations including those from students and residents. Abstracts will be judged on the following criteria:

  *   Adherence to submission guidelines
  *   Scientific or clinical novelty
  *   Methodologically sound
  *   Quantitative description of the results
  *   Conclusions that are substantiated by the results
  *   Submissions of previously published copyrighted material (e.g. ARVO abstracts or journal articles) will not be accepted.

First authors (excluding students and residents) of accepted papers/posters are also eligible to register for Academy 2018 San Antonio at reduced rates. To read more about the submission guidelines or to submit an abstract, visit http://bit.ly/2HHgIic.
