Abstract Details

Each presentation for the congress requires an abstract to include brief details of the work. The abstract should give details of the methods used and the most important data findings. There are two types of abstracts that can be submitted for review: Research articles and case reports.

Research articles
There should be headings in bold/capitals for: AIM, METHODS, RESULTS and the important CONCLUSIONS.

  • 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 workers. Only the FDI tooth notation system must be used. The statistical methods used should be stated.
  • RESULTS: These should be clearly and succinctly presented and only related to the methods described. Where appropriate data should be given as to the reproducibility of the findings. Statistical analysis should be included in this section. Images, tables and visual data should not be submitted.
  • CONCLUSION: This should briefly outline the most important findings.

Case reports
The format for these reports should follow a similar layout to research papers. The title page, author’s address should be the same as described above. There should be an abstract briefly describing the case and treatment provided.

The headings in the abstract must be:

  • A very brief INTRODUCTION about the disease or the condition of the case report.
  • BACKGROUND: The clinical case/technique should be briefly explained.
  • CASE REPORT(S): Described in detail.
  • There must be a description of the FOLLOW-UP: Description of the clinical care carried out, which preferably should have been for two years where appropriate, this is to indicate the degree of success.
  • CONCLUSION: Briefly outline the most important findings.
