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.

Poster presentation session: Presentations will take place immediately after the poster viewing session in a designated auditorium. Two chairpersons will have responsibility for each session, making sure that the powerpoint presentations are ready and that the presentations are given in the order shown in the program book. Presenters can use a maximum of two powerpoint 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.


ORCA Prize

This prestigious prize is given in recognition of outstanding contributions to the field of dental caries research. Although only ORCA members can make nominations for the prize, nominees do need not be ORCA members. The main qualification is a body of original published work in caries research, but this may be supported by a record of active promotion of caries research in other ways. The ORCA prize is awarded every third year, and will be awarded in 2017 at the Opening ceremony of the ORCA meeting in Oslo. See ORCA website for more information (http://www.orca-caries-research.org/about/orca_prize.html),
