Abstract details

Each presentation for the Seminar requires an abstract to include brief details of the work.

The abstract should give details of the methods used and also the most important data findings.

There are two types of abstracts that can be submitted for review: Research articles and Case(s) Report

Research Articles

They should include the following sections with headings in bold/capitals, describing the research undertaken and the revealed outcome: AIM: Usually one short simple sentence stating the objective of doing the study. METHODS: This section must be clearly written and in sufficient detail for the work to be repeated by other scientists. The statistical methods used should be stated. Where needed, the FDI tooth notation system must be used. RESULTS: These should be clearly and succinctly presented and only related to the methods described. Where needed, appropriate data should be given as to the reproducibility of the findings. Statistical analysis should be also included in this section. Images, tables and visual data should not be submitted. CONCLUSION: This should briefly outline the most important findings.

Case(s) Report

They should include the following sections with headings in bold/capitals, describing the case(s) and treatment provided: INTRODUCTION: In this section briefly describe the background for the case report, introducing the topic that the case/technique addresses. Explain why this case is worthy of note. CASE(ES) REPORT: This section should be the longest and most detailed part of the abstract. Relevant information should include patient(s) basic demographics, clinical findings, treatment plan and techniques used and the final outcomes. FOLLOW-UP: Includes a description of the follow-up care carried out, which preferably should have been for two years where appropriate, to indicate the degree of success. CONCLUSION: Includes the main “take-home” message from the report, indicating its significance and explaining the implications for clinical practice or future research.
