Abstracts & Prizes
Poster viewing and presentation
Poster viewing session: Presenters should prepare a poster in A0 format (portrait, ca. 90 cm wide, 120 cm high). All posters must be mounted on pre-numbered poster boards before the start of the first poster viewing session. Double-sided tape will be provided for mounting of posters. All posters will be mounted Thursday 07:00-08:50 in Salón Bolívar middle room.
Poster presentation session: Presentations will take place immediately after the poster viewing session in a designated room. Two chairpersons will have responsibility for each session, making sure that the Power Point presentations are ready and that the presentations are given in the order shown in the program book. Presenters can use a maximum of two Power Point slides to support their presentation that should last no longer than 2 min. This will be followed by a question/discussion session lasting about 3-5 min depending on the number of presentations in the session. Professor David Beighton will be asking for the two slides in advance.
Yngve Ericsson Prize
The Yngve Ericsson Prize is awarded once every three years in acknowledgement of outstanding contributions to prevention of oral diseases.
Established in 1963, The Swedish Patent Revenue Fund for Research in Preventive Odontology was originally founded on royalties from patents, primarily patents for addition of fluoride to dentifrices to prevent or arrest dental caries. The Fund is the largest non-public granting source for dental research in Sweden through its continued support of research into prevention of dental and oral diseases. This international Prize is named after its founder.
The prize awardees are selected by a five-member Prize Committee appointed by the Patent Revenue Fund and ORCA. The Prize will be presented at the 66th ORCA Congress in Cartagena, Colombia, at the Opening Ceremony (Thursday 4th July 2019).
ORCA Nathan Cochrane Young Scientist’s Award
The ORCA Junior Scientist Award was inaugurated in 2007 as the Young Investigator’s Award, and was renamed the "ORCA Nathan Cochrane Young Scientists' Award" at the General Assembly of July 4, 2014 in Greifswald, Germany. This prize is aimed at encouraging young researchers, and is awarded each year at the Closing ceremony of the ORCA meeting. The prize winner receives a certificate and is entitled to receive reimbursement of the congress fees for a future ORCA Congress. This year candidates will be presenting their posters in the Thursday afternoon session. The winner will be announced at the Closing Ceremony (Saturday 6th July).
