CALL FOR POSTER ABSTRACTS - deadline extended

Due to a high level of interest in poster submissions this year, we have decided to extend the closing date for submissions to Monday 6th March 2017 at 9am. 

This year BASCD would like to increase the emphasis on poster presentation at the conference.

Posters will be set up at the start of the conference and available for viewing throughout the conference.

Due to the growing quality and number of BASCD posters we have decided to set aside some time in the programme with poster session Chairs (Thursday 6th April in the morning), where a presenter will host a discussion around their poster, to maximise its impact.

We are holding two poster competitions AND have a general category of presentation:

The Roger Anderson Poster Prize: This covers any relevant area of community dentistry/public health involving an evidence-based approach to address population health, service development or oral health inequalities.

An Oral Health Promotion Research Prize: The prize aims to facilitate collaboration between academics and oral health promoters, and encourage the dissemination of good oral health promotion practise and evaluation among the BASCD membership.

Dissemination Poster: These are posters not entered for a prize but which are of interest to BASCD members. 


Full guidance on poster preparation and competitions, with instructions for submission of abstracts can be accessed here (link).
