SYDNEY, Australia: The Australian Dental Association and FDI have announced that they will present a completely virtual special edition of the World Dental Congress (WDC) from 26 to 29 September. Owing to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the congress has been moved fully online for the first time.

This virtual congress, broadcast from International Convention Centre Sydney, will offer streamed live sessions as well as pre-recorded on-demand presentations. The latter will be available for 60 days after the congress.

WDC 2021 programme and exhibition

Congress participants will have more than 200 continuing education scientific sessions to choose from, and speakers will come from Africa, America, Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and New Zealand. Participants will be able to interact with the speakers and ask questions in real time. The industry exhibition will be held through the same virtual event platform, ensuring a seamless experience that will enable participants to engage with exhibitors and view product demonstrations. All regular FDI business meetings and the General Assembly will also be held on this virtual platform.

“This special edition of the FDI World Dental Congress 2021 Sydney offers us a unique opportunity to showcase the value of our wide-ranging list of speakers and unparalleled continuing education offerings. Although this will be a 100% virtual event, the quality will reflect the high calibre we expect from every FDI World Dental Congress. Attendees will be able to navigate between scientific sessions and the industry exhibition with ease and connect with colleagues in real time. Because the event is no longer limited to a strict time schedule, participants will have the flexibility to attend as many sessions as they would like,” the organisation stated.

Abstract submissions

The time window for abstract submission is scheduled to run for a slightly shorter period this year and will only be open until 15 April. Authors are advised to carefully review the submission guidelines and may submit abstracts for oral presentations and posters in the following categories: general dentistry; preventive dentistry; dental treatment and restorative dentistry; and oral surgery, medicine and cancer. Abstracts can be submitted here.
