Deadline extended to 27 April

In order to give as many people as possible the opportunity to submit an abstract, we have decided to extend the deadline to Wednesday 27 April. During this period abstracts submitted before the first deadline may also be edited and updated.

We would like to thank all of you who have already submitted an abstract and hope that you further encourage your colleagues and students to be part of VPO 2016.

OSA student awards

We are very happy to announce that the Optical Society of America has generously agreed to sponsor two 250 USD student awards: one for the best oral presentation and one for the best poster presentation.

The organisers of VPO 2016 kindly thank OSA for their generosity.


VPO 2016 – Paper submission is now open

The paper submission procedure for the VPO 2016 Meeting is now open!

VPO meetings bring together researchers, students, and clinical professionals from around the world to present their latest innovations in the fields of optics, optometry and vision sciences. This edition will also see a special issue of Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, which will give presenters the opportunity to have their contributions published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract of up to 3 pages of content (including figures and references) before April 15, 2016. These submissions will be assessed by our Scientific Committee, which will assign oral and poster presentation slots.

More details can be found on the conference website, where you can also download the Call For Papers (PDF).
