These are but a few of the thousands of pieces of information which will be presented when the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) holds its 82nd General Session & Exhibition, March 10-13, 2004, at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. It will also be the 33rd Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 28th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research.
This year, over 4,100 scientific presentations will be made, divided among plenary/oral/poster/poster discussion sessions and symposia/workshops. (For releases on selected topics, please see the white section of this Press Kit.) Estimates are that nearly 6,000 dental scientists, educators, students, and practicing dentists from around the world will convene, representing the latest thinking in dental research.
In addition to the individual presentations, there will be plenary sessions, symposia, and workshops during the four-day meeting, dealing with special-interest topics ranging from aspiration pneumonia to "dentists on Mars" to a dental caries vaccine. (For a complete listing, please see the green section of this Press Kit.)
Featured during Meeting Week will be both the IADR/Unilever Hatton Awards Competitions (40 competitors from 19 countries) and the AADR/Pfizer Hatton Awards Competition (27 competitors) for student investigators. The presentations, in poster format, will be judged by top-level scientists. Winners will receive cash prizes and plaques.
The Opening Ceremonies and Welcome Reception, from 4:15 to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 10, will provide an exciting kick-off for the week's activities.
