Presentation & Abstract Publishing

For this conference, a select number of abstracts from each category will be chosen for publication in an on-line supplement of the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (IJOMS) which will be published three- six months following the conference. There will be no presentations and no posters collected. Authors of accepted abstracts may voluntarily submit a pre-recorded video presentation which will appear on the IAOMS website. All abstracts accepted by the Journal must abide by their guidelines and editorial requests. This may include shortening of abstracts before they are published. IAOMS will make the final determination on which pre-recorded video sessions will be posted on the IAOMS website.

Abstracts that have been previously published or presented at other conferences will not be considered for publication. Please email kshadle@iaoms.org  if you are unsure about submitting previously presented work.
