The Programme Committee welcomes abstract submissions for presentations at the 10th General Assembly. 10GA is a great opportunity for ophthalmologists, optometrists and eye care professionals with an interest in presenting and sharing high-quality research with the wider community. The previous Assembly saw more than 250 papers presented as both as oral and poster presentations.

Abstract submissions are open from 12th October 2015 to 25th March 2016 25th April 2016.

Presentations will be divided in to 5-minute Free Papers (oral) and Poster presentations; while submissions are invited for both, the 10GA Programme Committee will invite you to choose one option (preference can however be stated on submission).

All submissions will be reviewed by the 10GA Programme Committee and primary authors will be notified by May 2016 on the status of their submission. There is no limit to the number of papers that can be submitted; but papers must be of finalised/complete research only. Papers that are methodologically sound, properly written and add to the sector’s knowledge are welcome. Once accepted, your paper will also appear on Scientific Programme.

Please review the Abstract submission guidelines carefully, before proceeding to the Abstract Submission form.

Submissions are now closed
