Instructions for 2007 Turner Award Participants


1.      Your abstract has been approved for competition in the 2007 Turner Award Competition at the NC-AADR Dental Research in Review Day program.

2.      The competition is divided into these three categories:

1) DDS/DH/DA/predoctoral
2) MS
3) PhD

It is your responsibility to make sure you are being judged in the appropriate category, corresponding to your student status.

3.      Poster presenters:

a.       Set up in the 3rd floor lobby of Tarrson / Brauer Hall from 7:00-8:00 AM.

b.      Poster size is 4x8 feet. Posters will be on CORK boards, so please, no Velcro. Pins will be provided (although you can plan on bringing some).

c.       Judging will begin promptly as scheduled (see file attached for schedule and poster number, or schedule on Website), and will continue on the quarter-hour until all the posters have been judged. (note that the general public will be viewing your poster during that time also, so you will need to be there for the entire poster session, from 8:00 to 10:00 AM).

d.      You will have no more than 10 minutes to present, and an additional 5 minutes will be allotted to the judges for questions. 

e.       Poster break-down time is from 1:30 to 1:45 PM.

4.      Oral presenters:

a.       There are 6 oral presentation sessions: 3 in the morning between 10:15 and 11:45 AM, and 3 in the afternoon between 1:30 and 4:00 PM, taking place in rooms Brauer 030, Brauer 464, or Old Dental 3180. Please, check the attached file or the schedule on the Website for the time and location of your presentation.

b.      The electronic file for your presentation should be loaded onto the shared drive prior to February 21st, at the following link: \\dentistryfnp2\Share\DRR  
Save the file for your presentation with your assigned presentation number followed by a space and your last name (Example: 80 Pimenta.ppt). Save a backup copy in the subfolder labeled “Backup - DRRD Oral Presentations 2007”. Also bring a file of your presentation on a USB-compatible device or a disc on February 21st in case of a shared drive failure.

d.      You will have no more than 10 minutes to present, and an additional 5 minutes will be allotted to the judges for questions. The oral session chair will be monitoring time and you will be asked to end your presentation after 10 minutes. As a courtesy for other speakers in your session, you should plan on being in the room of your oral presentation session for the entire length of the session.
