Abstract and Special Interest Groups (SIG) submission is now closed.

The Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC) seeks high-quality abstracts describing original, unpublished research results that contain a clear statement of hypothesis, an explanation of methods, a report of data that unequivocally test the hypothesis, and a brief discussion of the implications.

The abstract must be work that has not been submitted for publication or preprint before the abstract submission deadline. After the abstract submission deadline of Dec. 6, an author is at liberty to submit their abstract to a journal or a preprint for publication consideration. 

ARVO membership for 2020 is required to submit an abstract. You may still join or renew online. The deadline for paper applications was Dec. 2. Membership dues are non-refundable and non-transferable, and do not include registration fees for meetings.
