The Scientific Program Committee invites the submission of abstracts for the Scientific Program of Academy 2019 Orlando and the 3rd World Congress of Optometry, to be held October 23-27, 2019. The abstract submission window will be open from May 1, 2019 to May 31, 2019 at 5:00 PM ET.
The Academy and WCO’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. The Scientific Program will include papers and posters on cutting edge research and clinical care.
All accepted presenting authors (excluding students and residents) are also eligible to register for Academy 2019 Orlando and the 3rd World Congress of Optometry at reduced rates. There are a variety of opportunities for accepted students to apply for funding to attend Academy 2019 Orlando and the 3rd World Congress of Optometry, as both the Academy and the WCO (for students outside of North America) offer multiple student travel fellowship grants. The student travel fellowship application window opens July 1, 2019.
