Abstract submission information

Abstract submissions for the 5th Asia-Pacific Glaucoma Congress 2021 are now closed


If your submission has been identified as needing re-submission; all of these submissions are now undergoing the final round of review and we will be in touch with submitters shortly to advise the outcome.


All accepted abstracts into the program either as an oral or a poster presentation are required to submit updated content for their submission prior to the new Congress dates (5 – 8 June 2021).

We are asking all accepted submitters to revise their work and submit updated content to include any new findings, new results or late breaking content.

This re-submission will apply to all accepted submissions (oral and poster) within the program and is compulsory. 

The online submission portal will re-open in October 2020 for you to submit your revised work by no later than 9 April 2021.

Important: As recently announced, the 2021 Congress will be fully virtual. Please note that all accepted submissions are still required to update their content and re-submit for this format.


We are delighted to be able to partner with the Asian Journal of Ophthalmology and Kugler publications to publish the APGC abstracts accepted by the Scientific Committee for the congress.



As the 2021 Congress will now be held in a virtual format, travel grants will not be applicable in 2021. Instead these will be reinstated in 2022 when an in-person congress is expected.
