The presentations available at APGC2020 are oral and poster presentations. During the submission process you are able to select your preferred presentation type however please note that the APGC2020 Program Committee will endeavour to confirm the presentation type you request, however this is not guaranteed.

NEW IN 2020!

In 2020 APGC is offering a new exciting enhancement to the poster presentations. It is required that all poster presenters also submit an audio file detailing their poster presentation.

Onsite at the congress during the poster display, attendees will be able to view the poster abstract submission and listen to your audio file while looking at your poster display.

You will not be reviewed on the audio component, this is purely an opportunity to further showcase your research to delegates at the congress.


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.
