• Abstract Information

    The online abstract submitter for AAO 2022 papers/posters will open March 10 and close April 5, 2022.

    Paper/poster abstract status (accepted or rejected) will be sent by email to Submitting Authors by the end of June. Final schedules, with date and time for live presentations, will be emailed to the Presenting Author by mid-July.

    Scientific research submitted as a paper/poster benefits from these opportunities:

    • Expanded original paper presentations with panel discussions that include the opportunity for questions and answers with the authors.
    • Moderated poster discussions allowing for an interactive presentation of your work.
    • Easy online access to e-posters during the meeting through the Mobile Meeting Guide, and after the meeting through the online Meeting Archive.

    Note: All posters are electronic (e-poster). There are no physical posters. Additionally, some e-posters will be scheduled as a live presentation or a pre-recorded discussion session.
