June 19-24, 2022

Launched in 1992, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is one of the premier meetings exploring retinal circuitry, development, and processing. It provides a unique opportunity for retinal scientists at all levels to exchange ideas, establish collaborations, and meet new colleagues.

The conference brings together vision scientists with diverse approaches to present and discuss the latest information and technical advances in the field.

Important Dates

Abstract Deadline: May 9, 2022
Early Registration Deadline: May 19, 2022
Cancellation Deadline: May 29, 2022
Housing Deadline: June 4, 2022

The conference's main themes are: 1) How retinal circuits process visual information to generate unique outputs; 2) How knowledge of normal circuitry informs strategies for repair; 3) State-of-the-art tools to probe new functions of retinal neurons and their connections.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • Retinal development
  • Cell structure and function
  • Synaptic and circuit processing
  • Computational vision
  • Retinal dysfunction and repair

The conference features long platform talks by internationally known researchers, junior faculty, and advanced postdoctoral fellows.

Postdocs and graduate students are strongly encouraged to present posters. Selected postdoctoral poster presenters will be invited to give short talks. Selected graduate student poster presenters will be invited to feature their work in short "data blitz" talks.
