Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) Annual Conference

The ARVO annual conference brings together thousands of PhDs, MDs, engineers, and companies interested in viewing and sharing the latest in eye research. The large attendance and laid back atmosphere allows attendees to split their time between catching up with old colleagues, setting up business meetings, and forming new collaborations while presenting their own original work and checking out the ideas of others. The conference this year was held in Orlando, Florida and three ESRs (Giovanni Ometto, Pedro Guimaraes, and myself) as well as a few supervisors had the opportunity to attend, with Pedro and I presenting posters. There was a very positive response to our work and we are looking forward to building on some of the relationships we made as well as attending next year’s conference in Denver, Colorado. I also encourage anyone interested in eye research to attend at least once. My field, image processing, is just a very small percentage of the work presented and there is truly something for everyone. I’m talking to you Sergio.  Hope to see you all next year!

  1. Definitely, Jeff. I totally agree. Two people from my department were there presenting their work, but I had not data enough to go with. Hopefully next year I will join you 🙂
