INVITATION FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION & INFORMATION
ABOUT THE IAOP PRIZES
The International Association of Oral Pathologists is now inviting
submissions for oral and poster presentations for its biennial
congress which will be held in Cape Town, South Africa from August
Papers that will advance the concepts and practice of oral pathology
and medicine are welcome. These may represent clinical and basic
science studies or experimental work dealing with the diagnosis,
patho-physiology, pathogenesis, and management of diseases of the
head and neck region.
Abstracts will be selected by a panel of reviewers on the basis of
their content and general interest to registrants. Following
recommendations of the reviewers, the Program Committee, whose
decision will be final, will make the selection. Abstracts may be
selected for either oral or poster presentation. Accepted abstracts
will be published in the July 1998 issue of the Journal of Oral
Pathology and Medicine.
