• Abstract Information

    The AAO 2023 online abstract submitter will open March 9.

    Paper/poster abstract status (accepted or rejected) will be sent by email to Submitting Authors by the middle of July. Final schedules, with date and time for scheduled in-person presentations, will be emailed to the Presenting Author by the end of 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 Theater and small-group Poster Discussions allowing for an interactive presentation of your work.
    • Easy online access to all accepted e-posters during the meeting (on Demand) 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 session.
