2024 Call for OrthoDome Applications

OrthoDome applications are being accepted now through July 17 as part of the AAOS 2024 Annual Meeting Call for Abstracts.

  • A video is not required to submit an application, although we strongly encourage you to provide one.
  • Acceptance and rejection notifications will be sent in late-August 2023.

Submissions should meet the following design guidelines:

Video Specifications

  • Videos should be 7-12 minutes in length with a maximum file size of 45 GB.
  • AAOS is seeking high quality non-3D content. Videos should be recorded in either HD or UHD (4K). Please see specs below.
