The AOA invites you to participate in our state-of-the-art ePoster (Electronic Poster) Session at Optometry's Meeting® 2019! See the schedule below for sessions.
The ePoster Sessions create a national forum for clinicians, students and faculty to communicate interesting cases and original research to their colleagues. Abstracts based on unique clinical cases and all aspects of optometric research will be reviewed, and submissions meeting required criteria will be accepted for ePoster presentation. All case reports and research must be complete and unpublished at the time of submission. Poster abstracts must be submitted electronically and be received by Feb. 6, 2019.
The ePoster format is an excellent way to present research and clinical data. The AOA will provide flat HD screen TV monitors on stands that are mounted with computers and loaded with software to display the posters.
There are many benefits of the ePoster format:
The top 5 posters will be selected to participate in an interactive education session at Optometry's Meeting on Friday, June 21 from 10am - 12pm. Each presenter will be paid a $350 honorarium to participate in this rapid-fire session featuring 15-20 minutes of presentation per author. The top 5 posters will also be featured in AOA Focus magazine.
Authors will be notified by mid-March via email if their poster has been accepted. Acceptance will be based on the following criteria:
Please note: Authors of selected posters will receive a complimentary Exhibit Hall Only registration pass to Optometry's Meeting. If an author wants to participate in events and continuing education, the author will need to register as a professional attendee. The author is also responsible for hotel and transportation costs.
Posters are peer-reviewed, and only those that meet the acceptance criteria will be selected for presentation and publication. Accepted posters will be published in an AOA digital supplement that will be promoted to AOA members and the profession. The supplement will be featured on aoa.org, optometrysmeeting.org and in an article in AOA Focus magazine following Optometry's Meeting.
