Second call for abstracts for Dublin 2012

20 December 2011

The Academy has today announced an additional call for abstracts for its next annual conference in Dublin, Ireland.

Over 120 abstracts have already been received for the conference that will take place from 20-22 April 2012, and this additional time will allow more members to put forward their presentations.

Abstracts will be accepted from 20 December – 5 January 2012.

Submissions are invited for:

  • oral presentations
  • case studies
  • clinical workshops and discussion forums.

Following the first call for abstracts, we now only have very limited space for poster presentations. We recommend that anyone wishing to submit an abstract selects an alternative format for presentation.

Professor Roger Crelier, President of the Academy said: “We are incredibly impressed with the volume and calibre of abstracts already received. These presentations, alongside the planned programme, will ensure delegates from across Europe are kept up-to-date with the latest research and are able to learn from their peers.”

“Dublin 2012 will also provide a forum to disseminate and share research, information and best practice. I hope to see you there.”

As well as a range of abstracts, the conference will also feature key note speeches from Professor Pablo Artal (University of Murcia, Spain) on adaptive optics with a focus on new research; and Dr Kathryn Saunders (University of Ulster, UK) on clinical practice in relation to paediatric care.

Certificates of attendance will be awarded to all delegates and may be used as evidence in local continuing professional development schemes (CPD/CET).

Submissions can be made online by clicking here.
