Editor's Blog: Posters more than piece of paper
As part of Ophthalmology Times’ coverage of the 2014 meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, Group Content Director Mark L. Dlugoss writes this blog with his observations of the meeting.
Orlando—The digital world is always moving into our lives in some form and fashion. So it should not surprise anyone that the traditional poster sessions at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) meeting would one day deliver clinical research with a digital component. That day has arrived!
The basic digital concept is not really that new. The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) have already made their poster presentations available for on-demand viewing at computer kiosks. ASCRS has even moved its film festival to that format.
At this year's ARVO meeting here in Orlando, one research organization has added video to one of its posters to emphasize the data and findings.
