The IADR, AADOCR, and all Group/Network Communities will not be accessible from October 18-21, 2021 as IADR goes through site improvements. Thank you for your understanding. 

The prize for 2021 will be confirmed at later date. 

DEADLINE: March 1, 2021



For the best student abstract presented at a Diagnostic Systems oral or poster session at the IADR General Session.


All abstracts submitted by a student presenter are eligible and automatically considered.


Student presenters should follow the general guidelines for submitting an abstract for an IADR General Session. The "student" status must be noted at the time the abstract is submitted.

Review & Selection Process:

The student abstracts are reviewed as a matter of course during the general review process for all abstracts submitted for an IADR General Session. The student abstract with the highest score is the winning abstract. In the case of a tie or multiple ties, the Group Program Chair forms an ad hoc committee to re-review the subset of abstracts and determine the winner.

The IADR Global Headquarters has no role or responsibility in granting this award.


The award consists of a $1,000 cash prize. (prize subject to change for 2021)
