The AOA wants you to participate in our state-of-the-art ePoster (Electronic Poster) Session at Optometry's Meeting®!
The ePoster Sessions create a national forum for clinicians, students, and faculty to communicate interesting cases and unique 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 All case reports and research must be complete and unpublished at the time of submission.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 February 6, 2017.
The new 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 each of the posters throughout the conference. The ePosters will be uploaded to the computers attached to the monitors prior to the start of the conference.
There are many benefits of the new ePoster format:
