Important Information for abstract submissions:

  • Each category and subcategory of presentation and the associated submission have specific and unique requirements – please read the instructions carefully before submission.
  • For example, abstracts for posters that cover Clinical Research (trials, outcome studies) should be submitted to the Original Scientific Research poster section NOT the Clinical Poster section, which is about describing clinical case reports and clinical techniques.
  • If you enter your abstract into the wrong category/subcategory of presentation it will automatically be entered into the General Endodontic Poster section.
  • Only those abstracts accepted for the Research Prize Competition, Education Prize Competition and Original Scientific Research Poster subcategories will be published in the International Endodontic Journal.


Submissions are accepted OR rejected based on:

  • Submission to the correct category;
  • Adherence to the guidelines for submission to the correct category and subcategory;
  • Quality of the submission.
  • Decisions on acceptance or rejection of submissions will be made by the end of March 2024.

Submitters will receive an acceptance/rejection email in April 2024. Please check your Junk/SPAM folders before querying the status of your submission. Presentation details, e.g. room, day, time and moderator will be informed via email once these have been decided.  Authors will be invited to present their work only when the submission has been accepted. Abstracts not accepted for the Original Scientific Research posters, Clinical Posters and Oral Presentations on Freely Chosen Subject categories will be invited to be included in the General Endodontic Poster section. Authors will have an opportunity to select whether they wish their submission to be withdrawn or considered for this section. Please note General Endodontic posters will NOT be formally presented, moderated or included in the International Endodontic Journal.
