The Awards Committee will be nominated by the ECG Board. This will consist of three colleagues from different countries who are members of the European College of Gerodontology.

The principal author must be a member of the ECG of good standing. Membership is not restricted to Europe and Membership Application Forms can be downloaded from the ECG website and should be submitted to Professor Anastassia Kossioni (akossion@dent.uoa.gr) and Professor Martin Schimmel (martin.schimmel@zmk.unibe.ch).

The work shall be original and must not have been published nor presented prior to submission for this. It should be submitted as a 1000 word maximum abstract to Professor Anastassia Kossioni (akossion@dent.uoa.gr).
