• YIRF aims to encourage further discussion and collaboration between people interested in questions of Dental and Oral Health.
  • This retreat is aimed at providing guidance, tactics, and strategies to better position young investigators for a successful career in the field of Dental & Oral Health
  • The Forum will provide an opportunity for collegial interaction with other young investigators and established senior investigators across the broad spectrum of Dental research as well as with NIH scientific and program officers
  • Young Researcher Sessions are organized at the Dental 2016, to provide an exclusive platform for Investigators for presenting latest research projects with an in-depth analysis.
  • Scient cordially invites Young Researchers from Universities/Institutes/Industries to present a short oral presentation during the forum. These oral presentations ought to be of 10-15 minutes length in connected scientific track followed by five minutes question hour. Therefore, presenters are offered to give comprehensive and dynamic talks.
  • Participants should be below the age of 33 years.
  • Open to young investigators (clinical fellows, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty).
  • The Forum process begins by inviting researchers to submit abstracts of their work, which is then reviewed and rated by a select panel of Dental Experts. The panel then awards the top scoring authors the opportunity to give an oral presentation of their work at the Forum.
  • Topics must fit into the general theme of Dental and Oral Health, for example as outlined in the call for GCD papers.
  • At least one of the authors must be a young researcher.
  • We will employ a two-phase screening process. After the first review phase, there will be a notification of either rejection, or conditional acceptance, accompanied with a description of required changes to be made (either with respect to content or format)
  • The screening process is intended to ensure the technical quality of the presented work.
  • All submissions must be in English.
  • The Young Investigator Researchers Forum organised by Scient within the framework of the Dental and Oral Health Conference as a unique opportunity for the researchers to present their work to a select audience of peers and key representatives in the field of Dental & Oral Health.
  • This medium will give pertinent and timely information and can discuss latest research tools and technologies in your field.
  • Though this medium, Interact and share ideas with both peer and mentor, can develop collegial interaction among young researchers and networking with senior investigators across the globe.
  • An award, funded by Scient, is presented to the researcher’s that provided the best oral presentations, with a possibility of their work being published in the International Journal of Dental & Oral Health.
