Bando Mario Martignoni


L’AIOP istituisce ogni anno, in occasione del Congresso Internazionale, la sessione di ricerca intitolata dal 2006 al Prof. Mario Martignoni.
La sessione di ricerca viene sviluppata in sinergia con la Società di Odontostomatologia Protesica ed Implantoprotesi (SIOPI), in rappresentanza della componente Universitaria, per stimolare e promuovere la ricerca in tema di Protesi e delle materie ad essa affini.
Il presentatore del poster accettato per la Sessione di Ricerca dovrà essere regolarmente iscritto al Congresso, con quota ridotta (iscrizione per i non soci che presentino un poster € 150 anziché € 450) e pagare un contributo di partecipazione di € 50,00. Per favorire la partecipazione dei giovani ricercatori l'AIOP ha deliberato di eliminare il contributo poster di 50 € per gli autori che abbiano meno di 30 anni al momento del congresso. La data di chiusura è il 20 Ottobre 2017. La Commissione Scientifica informerà entro il giorno 31 Ottobre 2017 sull'avvenuta accettazione o meno dei rispettivi abstracts.
Gli abstract relativi ai primi tre poster classificati verranno pubblicati sull'edizione inglese dell'International Journal of Prosthodontics. Gli abstract ed i poster dei primi cinque classificati verranno pubblicati sul sito web dell’AIOP in formato pdf.

Il miglior poster verrà selezionato da un'apposita giuria e al vincitore verrà assegnato un premio di € 5.000,00.
Inoltre, anche quest'anno, i PRIMI 5 CLASSIFICATI tra i giovani sotto i 30 anni riceveranno in omaggio l'iscrizione all'AIOP 2018.


Do not use a font size smaller than 10. Proofread your abstract carefully.
Be absolutely certain that all names are correct. Put an asterisk (*) after the name of the person presenting the paper. Asterisk only one name per abstract.
Institutions must follow the last author’s name and should be enclosed in parenthesis, followed by a period. Addresses may be abbreviated, omitting state or country where obvious. Do not include illustrations. It is not acceptable to say that results will be presented and/or discussed.
An individual may submit only one abstract as first name and may present only one poster at the Meeting. His/her name, however, may appear as co-author on other posters.
Submission of an abstract carries with it the responsibility for the presenter to present the contents of the abstract in person. Requests to withdraw papers must be made in writing BY THE PRESENTER (requests from anyone else will not be accepted) and submitted to the Chairman of the Research Forum. After the program is printed, the paper may not be withdrawn. However, if, after this date, the presenter finds it impossible to present the paper, the presenter must send written notification with an explanation and the name of a substitute presenter. The substitute should not already be presenting a paper on the program, and he/she should be a co-author listed on the abstract.
The abstract and the poster should be original (not previously presented or published).
All presenters must register for the meeting and pay the registration fee as AIOP Affiliated Member.


The maximum format of the poster or equivalent area within which to create a bristol board-supported presentation is 70 cm in width and 100 cm in height (2,5’ x 3,5’). Horizontal posters are not acceptable.

Authors and co-authors should adhere to the following procedure:


08:00 - 09:00 Poster mounting in the selected area for poster exhibition
11:10 – 11:40 / 15:50 – 16:30 Authors and co-authors must stand near their posters ready to answer the questions submitted by participants or members of the Scientific Committee (failure to comply will result in disqualification for the best poster presentation award)


10:10 – 11:20 Mario Martignoni Prize Award Ceremony for the Best Scientific Poster
13:30 – 14:00 End of session and disassembly of posters


1. At the top of the poster, place the title and the authors’ names. The letters for this section should be at least 2.5 cm (1”) in height.
2. Since the poster will be viewed from a distance, the height of the letters for the text should be at least 1.3 cm (1/2”).
3. Charts and drawings should be heavily drawn, simple to understand, and illustrated by concise captions.
4. The poster should be self-explanatory so that all you have to do is answer questions on specific aspects of your topic rather than explaining what the poster is about to a succession of visitors.
5. The viewer is facilitated in understanding your material if you indicate (by letters, numbers or arrows) a preferred sequence that should be followed.
