Presentation & Research types

  • Authors can submit abstracts for Oral Presentations or Posters (e-posters format). However, the final presentation type of the accepted abstract is under the discretion of the congress scientific committee.
  • Projects being reported must be Original studies or Case reports. No literature reviews will be accepted.

Original Study Abstracts

Formatting

  • Title
    Abstract title must be less than 10 words. The initial letter of the title must be capitalized.
    It should express the research essence (concise summary) and should convince the reader that the topic is important, relevant, and innovative.
  • Aim or purpose
    In one brief sentence, provide the rational for the investigation and/or the question to be answered, with or without short citation(s). Citations should be listed and provide the name and initials of authors (max 3), title of article, title of journal, year of publication, the volume number and first and last page numbers in full. 
  • Materials and methods
    The experimental conditions should be reported briefly (i.e. age group, nature of the animals, sex, and approval from the Ethics Committee at the presenter’s institution). The clinical approach should be precise, and the period of time studied taken into account in the interpretation. The methods used should also be clearly indicated (i.e. image analysis, biochemical data, histological, immune-histological or molecular probes used for the analysis of the data, statistical significance). 
  • Results
    The results should be stated in a maximum of three sentences.
  • Conclusions
    This is any conclusion(s) that can be drawn from the presentation. This final statement is crucial because it supports the scientific value of the poster.

Evaluation criteria:

The evaluation by the reviewers is based on the following criteria:

  • Originality of research
  • Research methodology
  • Results & analyses
  • Clinical applications
  • Is the research presented clearly and legibly?

Case Report Abstracts

Formatting

  • Title
    Abstract title must be less than 10 words. The initial letter of the title must be capitalized.
    It should express the research essence (concise summary) and should convince the reader that the topic is important, relevant, and innovative. It is not necessary to describe everything about the case in the title.
  • Introduction
    The case report abstract begins with a short introduction. It describes the context of the case and demonstrates its relevance or importance.
  • Case Description
    Case Reports needs to represent treatment (new or novel) approaches to dealing with specific clinical problems. When reporting the case, comply the essential guidelines of medical/dental communication; describe in sequence the medical and/or dental history, physical examination, investigative study(studies), and the progress and outcome. Product trade names used in the case treatment must be accompanied by a generic term, and followed by the manufacturer in parentheses.
  • Discussion
    The principal objective of the discussion is to review why decisions were made and summarize the lesson from the case. Clinical Considerations should be included by a brief description of the clinical materials and techniques employed. Not uncommonly, reports from the literature, or their absence, are cited that either directly support or contradict the findings of the case. The best case report abstracts are those that give a small number of learning points in clear and concise language.
    Conclusion/clinical significance:
    In a few sentences, the clinical importance and implications of the research or clinical technique should be discussed and included, and if applicable, its relevance to clinical dentistry.

Evaluation criteria

The evaluation by the reviewers is based on the following criteria:

  • Novelty of the idea
  • Methodology of treatment
  • Treatment of results 
  • Significance in clinical practice
  • Is the work presented clearly and legibly?
