Welcome to the AAOMP Abstract Submission System

 

This site has been created to make your submission process easy and user-friendly. Once your abstract is accepted, the site will allow you to update and change your information in your presentations until the March 5, 2021 deadline for abstract submission.

Information you need to know regarding abstract submissions:

All accepted abstracts will be published on the AAOMP website. A limited number of papers will be accepted for oral platform presentation and the remainder of those accepted will be presented using a poster format. The Program Committee will determine the presentation format for each paper and notify the authors accordingly. To help with the process, you will need to indicate your preference by checking the appropriate category: Oral or Poster Presentation. Because of time constraints, it may not be possible to accommodate all requests for oral presentation. If your abstract is accepted for an Oral Presentation, it MUST be presented in a digital (PowerPoint) format.

The participant, when notified of acceptance of the abstract for presentation at the annual meeting, will receive instructions on how to upload their oral presentation and agrees to submit their final PowerPoint presentation no later than the established deadline as stated in the instructions. The presenter, by submission of the abstract, accepts the deadline and acknowledges responsibility for correctness and completeness of the PowerPoint presentation at time of submission. Failure to meet the deadline and formatting requirements may result in removal of the abstract and oral presentation from the program.

Abstracts will appear in the final program exactly as submitted. Please follow the directions carefully. Selected abstracts from the scientific sessions will be published in OOOO. Therefore, the abstract must include Introduction, Materials and Methods. Results, and Conclusions. In addition, the material presented must not have been published previously.

For further information or to clarify the information you have read, please contact AAOMP President-Elect Dr Donald Cohen at dcohen@dental.ufl.edu or AAOMP staff at info@aaomp.org.

Oral Presentation

  • Presentations must be submitted in digital format as indicated in the final acceptance letter.
  • Room assignments, including oral presentation number, will be published on the meeting web site.

AAOMP Abstract Awards

The American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology offers five abstract awards: The Gorlin Award, the Waldron Award and three Dental Student Travel Awards (see table below for easy reference information).

The Dental Student Travel Awards are for recognition of outstanding dental students who have conducted research in the field of Oral Pathology. Before you can submit your abstract online, you must present your abstract to your program director. The program director will review the abstract for content and accuracy. If they approve, the director will give you a letter that verifies your dental student status and that they have approved the abstract submission. Your submission cannot be accepted until this letter is uploaded in the appropriate place. The abstracts are judged prior to the annual meeting of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. An award of $1,000 is provided to the students who are selected as the winner. The award helps to offset expenses for these students to attend the annual meeting of the AAOMP to present their research findings. The student must present their research findings at the meeting in order to receive the award however. Within 10 days of notification of your award, you must register for the Annual Meeting.
