Abstract submission

We invite all participants to submit their abstracts for oral presentations or e-poster sessions.

The FACE AHEAD Scientific Committee will review all abstracts submitted. Those with the top rankings will be invited to present their findings to some of the most influential individuals in the craniomaxillofacial (CMF) community.

The six best papers will compete during the FACE AHEAD 2020 Young Surgeon Awards Competition. The authors of the three highest-scoring papers will receive the first-ever FACE AHEAD 2020 Young Surgeon Awards: the gold, silver and bronze prizes will include honorary certificates as well as a full refund of the FACE AHEAD 2020 registration fee for the submitter of the top abstract, and free two and one-year AOCMF memberships for the runners-ups.


In order to submit an abstract for the FACE AHEAD 2020 summit, please read carefully the submission guidelines (PDF) and also accept the AO data protection policy terms.

Submission Deadline: September 4, 2019, 23.59 CET
