Call for
Submissions to this conference must include the following three documents submitted as separate files:
  • 100-word text abstract (for online program)
  • 250-word text abstract (for abstract digest)
  • 2-page extended abstract (for committee review only). The extended abstract must be submitted as a separate document limited to two pages, including tables and figures. Include author names and affiliations; text; any figures, tables, or images; and sufficient data to permit peer review.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Program Committee to determine acceptance. The best extended abstracts will be nominated for the Pascal Rol Award. Extended abstracts will be used only for the purpose of peer review, and will not be published.

You are invited to submit papers to Ophthalmic Technologies XXX - the premier international meeting on therapeutic and diagnostic technology in the field of ophthalmology, which brings together engineers and scientists developing the next innovations, and clinicians and practitioners extending the technology.

Some recent topics covered include:
  • ophthalmic diagnostics
  • ophthalmic applications of OCT
  • adaptive optics
  • retinal prosthesis and bionic vision
  • wavefront sensing and wavefront-guided surgery
  • laser surgical systems
  • femto second laser applications
  • artificial cornea and keratoprostheses
  • optoacoustic monitoring
  • functional and molecular imaging of the eye
  • imaging of retinal and choroidal vasculature
  • selective retinal photocoagulation
  • optics of the eye and vision correction
  • ocular biometrics
  • ocular diagnostics of neural diseases
  • virtual reality in ophthalmology
  • optics and laser applications in ophthalmic drug delivery.

Authors who submit an abstract on a similar topic for presentation at another BiOS conference may be invited to present a short communication that should focus on ophthalmic issues.

Outstanding extended abstracts submitted to the Ophthalmic Technologies conference will be nominated for the Pascal Rol Award for Best Paper in Ophthalmic Technologies. The award and prize will be presented after the last scientific session of the conference to recognize the best paper and presentation. The 2019 recipient of the Pascal Rol Award was Furu Zhang and his colleagues from Indiana Univ. (USA) (see

SPECIAL PRESENTATION: Unmet Ophthalmic Technology Needs
This presentation series was established to promote the exchange of ideas between clinicians with a technological need and engineers interested in solving problems in ophthalmology. The invited lecture is sponsored by the Pascal Rol Foundation ( The 2020 speaker will be Prof. Cynthia Toth, from Duke University.
