IAAD Poster Competition Awards

IAAD_Logo

If you are a student, resident, or a young researcher (within 5 years after your last degree) you can compete for one of the IAAD 2015 Poster Competition Awards. All abstracts ranging from clinical reports to clinical/laboratory research are welcome in this competition.

IAAD will host one award in the category Student Scientist and a second award in the category Junior Scientist (see eligibility below). Please indicate during submission, which category you would like to compete in. Each abstract can be entered for only one award.

If you have not indicated your participation in any of those two categories during submission, you will not compete for any award.

 

Eligibility:

To be eligible for the Student Scientist category, you must be enrolled as a student or resident in a high-school, undergraduate, BDS/DDS, or post-graduate certificate/master program at time of submission. Please submit a copy of your certificate of enrollment.

To be eligible for the Junior Scientist category, you must be enrolled in a PhD program or be a researcher within five years after your last degree at time of submission. Please submit a copy of your certificate of enrollment or state the year of your last degree.

 

The winner in the Student Scientist category will receive the “Presidential IAAD Scientist Award”, including US $1,000 and a certificate.

The winner in the Junior Scientist category will receive the “Fusayama IAAD Scientist Award”, including US $1,000 and a certificate.

The winners and awards will be presented to the presenting author during the closing ceremony on September 12th, 2015.

 

Each abstract will be judged by a panel of judges appointed by the IAAD Poster Competition Chair. During the poster sessions, the judges will review the posters and listen to a brief oral presentation (not longer than 3-4 minutes) of each presenting author. Abstracts that were not accepted for or were not presented during the poster competition, as well as abstracts violating any abstract rules and guidelines will not be considered for an award. The panel reserves the right to withhold an award in the event that there are not sufficient entries (less than three) or the quality of the entries is insufficient.

 

The judging panel will take following considerations into account for grading of the posters:

1. originality and design of the investigation;

2. quality of the data produced;

3. suitability of the methods of analysis used;

4. scientific value of the work;

5. quality of the poster presentation;

6. demonstrated mastery of the subject.
