One of the innovations in the scientific programme for EuroPerio10, which takes place in Copenhagen on June 15-18, is the creation of a series of “tracks” to enable attendees to find the sessions that are most relevant to them.
As well as grouping the 41 sessions in the main scientific programme according to their content (such as clinical practice guideline, live surgery, nightmare session, management…), the organising committee has created five tracks based on professional profiles and three based on generic topics.
Thus, sessions are identified as falling under the profiles of specialist, academic, clinician, oral hygiene and prevention, and researchers, while the topic-based tracks are periodontology, implant dentistry, and multidisciplinary.
“It has been always a challenge, in previous EuroPerios, with so many interesting things running at the same time, to decide what to attend,” said David Herrera, scientific chair of EuroPerio10. “With the tracks, and following what already started in EuroPerio9, we want to help attendees, based on their profiles and interest, to identify the most relevant sessions to attend.”
The EFP and its professional conference organiser Mondial Congress & Events are confident that organising the four-day programme into these tracks will help the thousands of attendees at EuroPerio10 find their way to the sessions that most interest them.
Even so, with multiple sessions of the main scientific programme taking place simultaneously in up to four halls, there is always the risk of wanting to be in two places at the same time.
To help overcome this, every registered participant in EuroPerio10 gets free virtual access to watch sessions remotely both live and on-demand, and the recorded sessions will be available for a limited time after the congress closes on June 18.
EuroPerio10, held at the Bella Centre in Copenhagen, takes place from June 15 to June 18. The deadline for “early bird” registration – which means savings of up to 35% compared to onsite booking – is Wednesday 2 March.
