2020 IADR/AADR/CADR General SessionThe 98th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 44th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from March 18-21, 2020 in Washington, D.C., USA. Due to COVID 19 and the world pandemic, the meeting had to be canceled, but we were able to collect some of the science that was planned for presentation to be available to our members as part of an on demand meeting.
The recordings in this library are a selection of the science that was to be presented onsite at the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, IADR Centennial Plenaries and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.
This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles
Session DescriptionAs we celebrate the centennial of IADR, it is strategic to reconsider the roles of IADR scientific groups. There are three important points for discussion:(1) How do we foster substantial cross-collaboration among Groups in planning meetings and promoting overlapping science? How do we collaborate to embrace new cross-cutting areas of science such as artificial intelligence and genetic engineering? (2) How do we more effectively communicate the science presented in abstracts and symposia during annual meetings? Whether or not meeting content is formally published, how do we convey the valuable details from actual presentations to other IADR scientists? (3) How do we engage and help develop early- and mid-career scientists who are the future? How do we grow the membership of the IADR at the same time? This symposium is intended to present an array of options for future roles of Groups and provide an interesting list of experimental meeting goals for future. This is intended to be a thought-provoking symposium with substantial time for audience participation in discussion of the presentations.

- Participants will discover potential new meeting designs to enhance inter-Group coordination. Participants will be able to point out new scientific areas that need adoption within current SRGs.
- Participants will be exposed to new methods of communicating the details of the meeting science beyond the publication of abstracts and symposium titles. Participants will be able identify new presentation methods of future symposia.
- Participants will help to evaluate potential mentoring opportunities during meetings for new and mid-career scientists that could substantially enhance the value of membership. Participants will be able to identify personal and Group roles in increasing IADR membership.
