The AAE/Dentsply Sirona Resident Awards provide prizes of $1,000 to the ten highest scoring endodontic post-graduate student presenters in each category. In order to be eligible to present in this category, presenters and co-presenters must be endodontic residents at a CODA accredited institution and Resident Members of the AAE (or Active 1st Year Members if presenting research completed during residency and graduated prior year). Postgraduate endodontic presentations will be judged, unless the presenter indicates he/she does not wish to participate in the competition. There is only one award per presentation. The abstract represents 25 percent of the total score and the presentation represents 75 percent. Abstracts are scored by the Research and Scientific Affairs Committee, and presentations are scored by AAE members selected by the committee chair.

Abstracts for oral and poster presentations must be written in English and approximately 250 words long. Abstracts must include: 1) objectives; 2) concise description of the experimental design, and materials and methods; 3) results of the data and statistical analysis; 4) conclusions (underlined); and 5) funding source(s).
Abstracts for table clinics must contain: 1) objectives or rationale; 2) concise description of the technique or interesting phenomenon; and 3) conclusions.
Abstract headings are not required; any headings included in the abstract will be counted towards the 250 maximum word count.
No figures, photos or illustrations are allowed in the abstract. Upon submission, applicants will receive an electronic confirmation that their abstract has been received. Changes to the abstract can be made until the deadline date. Unfinished abstracts will be automatically withdrawn. Notification regarding the abstract's acceptance will be sent electronically.
Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are published in the online pages of the Journal of Endodontics and become part of the scientific literature. Selections for presentation are made by the Research and Scientific Affairs Committee based on the scientific merit and the quality of the writing. The committee reserves the right to place the abstract in a different and more appropriate category based on its topic and content. The presenter may withdraw the abstract if the requested mode of presentation has not been granted.
Residents, who are the presenting authors, must indicate whether or not they would like their abstract included in the judged competition.
Oral presentations: A 10-minute presentation on clinical or basic science research. An additional five minutes are allowed for questions. An abstract of the presentation must be submitted. The AAE provides a speaker ready room to drop off a copy of your PowerPoint® or Keynote® presentation at least 24-hours prior to the presentation date and time. Presentations must be given from the AAE-supplied computer, not your own. The location of the speaker ready room will be provided via email in January prior to the annual meeting.
Poster presentations: Presenter(s) use a poster board format to present their research. Text, illustrations, tables and graphs may be included. Five to ten minutes are allocated for the presentation. A presenter must remain at the poster throughout the entire session. Session date and time will be provided via email prior to the annual meeting. A written abstract of the research must be submitted.
Presenter(s) demonstrate a simple, time-saving clinical procedure or technique, or an interesting scientific phenomenon. Five to ten minutes are allocated for the presentation. An abstract must be submitted. The presenter/s must remain at the table throughout the entire session.
