On Friday, June 7, 2024, the Scientific Programme of RIWC24 is taking place and we have been accepting abstracts to be considered for poster display as well as short talk presentations (more information on each of these below). We’ve been highly impressed so far with the submissions.

On-going efforts in the area of vision and the wide spectrum of retinal disease can be submitted under the categories:

  • Laboratory-based Research
  • Clinical Research
  • Case Studies

  • Public and Patient Involvement (PPI)

We will be accepting submissions until Wednesday, March 13, 2024, at 5 pm GMT.

  • Short talk presentations- approx. 10-minute oral presentations on the day. Please note if not selected for a talk you will still be considered for a poster
