Eighteen finalists to compete for the two coveted EAO ‘Basic’ and ‘Clinical’ Research prizes at major implant congress

Brussels, May 25, 2011 – Eighteen abstracts have been selected for the EAO (European Association for Osseointegration) ‘Basic’ and ‘Clinical’ Research competitions, and the two coveted prizes will be awarded during the EAO Annual Congress in Athens on October 15th. The 15 reviewers of the EAO Abstract Committee made the selection from more than 500 submitted abstracts for the 2011 programme.

30 abstracts have also been selected for presenting at the Congress “Short Oral Communication” sessions and additionally, more than 400 will be presented at the Poster Exhibition covering a wide range of topics. These are organised in several categories including surgical and prosthetic aspects in implant therapy outcomes, tissue augmentation and engineering, technical and biological complications and basic and materials research. In addition, 20 submitted abstracts were selected for the “EAO Travel Grants”.

The poster display will extend for almost half a kilometre at the EAO 2011 annual dental implant congress which will take place in Athens from October 12th to 15th. The four day conference focuses on science related to oral implants and as one of the leading implant congresses in the world, it promises something for all dentists, researchers and members of the dental team. The last EAO Congress in Glasgow in 2010 was attended by more than 3,500 people from 76 countries around the world. The attendance this year in Athens is already expected to be even higher.
