Academy calls for abstracts for 2013 Seattle scientific program

May 2, 2013

The Scientific Program Committee of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO) invites the submission of abstracts for Academy 2013 Seattle, to be held Oct. 23-26. The AAO’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 abstract submission window will be open from May 1-31. This year, the Scientific Program Committee will present focused sessions on special topics including extended discussion, integration of clinical topics, and debate on current controversies.

The Scientific Program Committee is soliciting original research and clinical case report submissions on the following special topics:
1. Controversies in corneal inflammation and infection
2. Myopia: mechanisms and methods of control
3. Glaucoma: insights on vascular, structural and other disease mechanisms

The Scientific Program Committee will consider all presentations including those from students and residents. Abstracts will be judged for originality, quality of writing, organization and delivery of the presentation. First authors (excluding students and residents) of accepted papers/posters are also eligible to register for Academy 2013 Seattle at reduced rates.
