The Vision 2023 Denver conference is pleased to announce the call for abstracts. This conference aims to facilitate the dissemination of new research on vision impairment/blindness and best practices for low vision and blind rehabilitation services. We realize that depending on the topic, different formats may be preferred. Therefore, we are pleased to offer the submission types described below. Please read the descriptions carefully so that you submit under the correct category.

Submission Deadline: February 1, 2023 (11:59 pm - UTC−06:00)
Abstracts Selected: February 28, 2023


These presentations will be grouped by topical area to form a cohesive session and may combine more than one presentation type. Additionally, authors must choose a preference for a paper (oral) presentation or a poster presentation. Preferences will be considered, but cannot be guaranteed. Paper (oral) presentations are 12-minutes with an additional 3 minutes for questions. Only one presenter is permitted for the oral sessions, although there can be non-presenting co-authors. Posters will be displayed for a minimum of a half-day of the conference and will have a dedicated session time for the authors to discuss their poster with attendees.
  • Research
This is a scientific investigation of a problem or product.
  • Case reports
This is a detailed report of the clinical or educational care and follow-up of an individual patient/client/student.
  • Service provision
This is a description of a clinical/educational/rehabilitative program, technology or technique that has not undergone a scientific study.


These presentations are stand-alone and will not be grouped with other presentations. Due to their length, there will be fewer opportunities for presentation in these categories.
  • Workshop and lecture
This is a continuing education format presentation that may include hands-on activities designed to enhance care delivery or research activities of attendees. Workshops/lectures can be submitted for 1 or 2 hours. However, due to the length of these presentations and time/space constraints, we will be limited in the number of these sessions that can be selected for presentation. Authors are encouraged to submit an additional presentation under a short-presentation category as well.
  • Panel presentation
This is a pre-planned panel focusing on a topic that includes multiple presentations. The submitting author will be the moderator of the panel. Panel presentations will last 1 to 2 hours, including questions. Time for each presenter as well as amount of time allocated for questions will be determined by the panel, but must fit into the 1-or 2-hour format chosen during submission.

Vision 2023 Denver will be an in-person meeting. If your abstract is accepted, you and any co-presenters (for formats that permit them) should be available to present in Denver during the dates of the meeting. All presenters must register for the meeting.
