Lecture Contest is a peer-reviewed competition that takes place during the IADS meetings either annually or semiannually. Its scope is to synthesize a real academic competitive environment for students and young dentists who are enthusiastic about research to present their work at a global scale and challenge their presentation skills in front of an experienced jury.
Admission requirements, jury appointment and awards regulations are set by the SCORE in conjunction with the Local Organizing Committee (LOC). Participation right is exclusively granted to the meeting attendees.

In August 2008, the first Lecture Contest had been introduced to the IADS during the 55th Annualย Congress in Sharm Elsheikh – Egypt. It was one of early fruits of the newly formed Standing Committee on Research and Education (SCORE) which managed to organize and conduct the contest among all IADS member countries, of whom 4 students were qualified to the finalists.ย Paula Moraru was the winner of this edition.
“.. and over all, it has been a great platform where students from different countries presented their knowledge and experience with their friends, experiencing the differences in approaches and techniques presented between different countries in clinical dentistry which was enriching experience for all who attended it, and this is aย tradition that will be kept and repeated in every annual meeting from now on.” said Zeyad Salem – IADS Editor and Chairman of SCORE 2008/09
In August 2013, the 9th Lecture Contest took place at the Turkish historic municipal of Istanbul where the 60th IADS Annual Congress took place alongside 101st FDI Annual Meeting. It’s remarked as the largest and most competitive edition of this competition so far, with active of participation of 20 students (11 oral presentation, 9 poster session) who presented their prestigious work which merely dealt with each discipline of clinical dentistry. A booklet of all participants abstracts had been published in order to commemorate this contest. “Such an event is of a big importance for the young dental student researchers as it doesn’t only serve as a competition, but also as an educational tool through which they grow and acquire more experience” said Pavel Scarlat – IADS President 2012/13
