Submission Window Closes May 31
The American Academy of Optometry would like to remind you that the abstract submission window for the Scientific Program of Academy 2017 Chicago, to be held October 11-14, 2017, will close on Wednesday, May 31 at 11:59 PM ET.
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 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
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. 

All accepted presenting authors (excluding students and residents) are also eligible to register for Academy 2017 Chicago at reduced rates. All accepted students presenting as first authors are encouraged to apply for a student travel grant to help defray the costs of attending the meeting. The student travel fellowship submission window opens July 3, 2017.
