11th - 14th September 2018,Caird Hall, Dundee.

Undergraduate Poster Prize

Undergraduate students are invited to submit a clinical case, clinical governance project or research project for consideration as a Poster Presentation at the National BSPD Conference. Successful entrants will present their poster on Tuesday 11th September at the Conference Study Day, hosted by Teachers Branch. Prizes will be available to those posters judged to be the best entrants on the day. Eligible applicants include any student registered to study dentistry, dental nursing, or dental hygiene and/or therapy, at time of submission.

Delegates may only submit one abstract on which they are the presenting (first) author but it is permissible to be a co-author on multiple abstracts. It is expected that, in keeping with normal publication protocol, the first author (the presenting author) has made the greatest contribution to the work described. All co-authors must have approved the abstract submission. Furthermore, no abstract should have been presented previously at a National or International scientific meeting or have been published.  The presenter must register for the Study Day (Tuesday 11th September 2018).  Failure to do so, after acceptance of an abstract, may result in the abstract being withdrawn.

Acknowledgement of receipt of abstracts will be made by email to the presenting author.  Therefore it is essential that a complete e-mail address is provided on the abstract submission form.

The deadline date for abstract submission has been extended to - 30th June 2018.

Withdrawal of abstracts
Abstracts for the Undergraduate Poster Prize must be withdrawn informing the conference secretariat via e-mail before 31st July.

Presenter changes
If the presenting author is unable to attend the meeting, the conference organiser must be informed in writing and given the reason for this. Failure to do this may result in the presenter not being allowed to present at the following year’s meeting.

Poster preparation
Participants will give a 3-minute oral presentation at their poster. This will be followed by 2 minutes of questions. Posters will be displayed on a standard display board and should be A0 portrait (841 mm width by 1189 mm height).
