“Our meeting will offer you many opportunities to expand your knowledge of the latest science produced by our specialty, and to gain knowledge and insights into the current state of business and technology applications in our field,” said Dr. Nahid Maleki, president of the AAO, in a welcome letter to attendees.
In the classrooms, offerings include lectures and hands-on courses. In the exhibit hall, many companies are offering in-booth presentations led by thought leaders.
