Always hyphenate when possible (e.g., use “composite-resin restorations”, rather than “composite resin restorations”), and string together complicated phrases with hyphens.
Abbreviate extensively (i.e., introduce abbreviations quickly and use them. Do not say hybrid zone but rather introduce hybrid zone (HZ) and then use HZ from that point onward).
Always close spaces between numbers and units (e.g., instead of 30 mm, say 30-mm or 30mm; never leave spaces between numbers & standard deviations; and replace “30 ± 5” with “30±5”).
Always use tables for the presentation of information when possible. Put units in headers and omit them from the rest of the matrix.
Make sure that there is no inadvertent ‘dangling punctuation’ in the text, such as a comma or period that is not immediately adjacent to a word.
Eliminate as many “articles” (a, an, the, …) as possible.
String together all of the steps in the Materials & Methods section so that you are not starting and stopping individual sentences with separate subjects, verbs, and adjectives (e.g., “The samples (n=10/gp) were etched (37% H3POO4), washed (15s), stored (37°C, 7d), conditioned (25°C, 10m), tested (0.1mm/m), and statistically analyzed (ANOVA, Tukey’s, p < 0.05).”).
Replace statements with equations (e.g., Instead of “10 samples were tested for each group” insert “(n=10)” into an appropriate sentence).
Report all statistical differences with superscripts on results that can be attached rather than requiring separate statements.
Construct tables to minimize the number of necessary cells.
Presentations will be selected for the program on the basis of the scientific quality of the work as judged from the abstract. An impartial panel of reviewers will evaluate the content of each abstract.
The following are the evaluation criteria used in the review of abstracts. This is provided to call your attention to points that will be considered. In the final analysis, it will be the reviewers’ judgment of the value of any abstract that will determine whether the abstract should appear on the program. Since the abstracts are published and become part of the world’s scientific literature, it is important that the content be scientifically sound and grammatically correct. Each abstract is reviewed so that high standards can be ensured.
The official notifications will be emailed by the end of June, 2022 to all accepted presenters. The notifications will include presentation mode assignment (oral or poster), date and session time.
PLEASE NOTE: All communication between 45th EPA Congress and the presenter will take place via email. The email address used will be the one you supply when submitting your abstract for the PRESENTING/CORRESPONDING AUTHOR. Please make sure that you enter a valid, long-term email address so that you will receive all important notices that are sent from the 45th EPA Conference Secretariat regarding your abstract and presentation at the meeting.
Please do not call or ask the 45th EPA Congress Secretariat regarding the status of your abstract before recieving the official communication of acceptance/ rejection.
At the time of submission, you will be asked to select your preferred mode of presentation. However, not all requests can be accommodated and the final mode of your abstract will be selected by the Scientific Committee. The 45th EPA Congress will include presentations in the following modes:
The Executive Committee reserves the right to change topic title and presentation type of accepted abstracts.
