The prices provided by Melia are guaranteed until May 2022, when rates will increase and offer you flexible booking and cancellation until early August. Given the ongoing COVID-19 situation we also encourage you to book flexible flights and accommodation rates. All hotel and travel bookings are at the delegates own risk and changes to the meeting delivery due to COVID-19 or other unforeseen factors are not the responsibility of ADEE.

A call for e-poster and FREEStage abstracts will be issued in late January 2022, so ensure your adee.org user profile and email is updated so you get news on all the deadlines.
By submitting an abstract for programme content, you and the named persons on your application are agreeing to commit to be in attendance in person in Palma for the entire meeting duration (all things being equal).
ADEE Special Interest Groups (SIG): Are our long standing proven approach to the creation and delivery of focused consensus documents such as those that ground the practice of teaching in a particular topic. SIGs can be at various stages of development but should be advancing towards the publication of a core document that will be published in the European Journal of Dental Education and adapted throughout Europe in the relevant curriculum. Examples include, Special Care Dentistry Curriculum SIG which celebrated 10 years since publication in 2021, or the recently concluded SIG that supported the delivery of the Common Education Curriculum for the European Dental Hygienist.
ADEE ‘In Focus’ Briefings: Aims to share key topical trends in academic theory and practice, in focus sessions should be short and snappy with presentations of no more than two speakers delivering in tandem on a core topic. The focus and range can be diverse as it is grounded in academic practice, examples include Gaming as an educational tool.
ADEE Workshop: Can have a focus on any topic in the academic arenas, from student recruitment to assessment and graduation with many phases in-between. However, the focus of the session should be strongly practical based, with an element of learning of core relevant skills in the topic area. An example could be, Cultural Diversity in Dental Education, Train the trainer style sessions and the Use of EBD in delivering education.
ADEE Communities of Practice (COP): Bring together an array of individuals who have a shared area of interest or expertise to share relating to current needs or issues. The aim of the COP is to improve knowledge and skills of members of COP and to bring about change. During 2022, ADEE will introduce a number of COP (please see separate news item) and a limited number of these will be provided meeting space at ADEE 2022.
