Call for Abstracts

Presentation Types

The ISCA 2022 program is made up of four Main Scientific Sessions as well as a Poster Exhibition. All sessions for the ISCA 2022 will be virtual. 

The Main Scientific Sessions will include oral presentations from invited speakers as well as from speakers selected through this call for abstracts. The poster presentations will all be selected through this call for abstracts.

Upon submission of your abstract, you will be asked for your preference between an oral or a poster presentation. This preference will be taken into consideration by the Scientific Advisory Committee. 


As suggested by the conference tagline,“a global forum to improve the lives of those with albinism”, we welcome abstracts covering topics related to health in albinism. This includes, but is not limited to, the following topics: ophthalmology, dermatology, genetics, cellular and molecular biology, syndromic forms of albinism (and related fields of hematology, pulmonology, immunology, gastroenterology), epidemiology, access to health, prevention, low vision interventions, and therapies.
