The learning program included scientific sessions presented by students and delegates on the 1st day which encouraged an interactive and inspiring exchange between participants. Over 100 student and delegate sessions were conducted which underlined the recent researches and technological advancement in the field of endodontics. The award for Best Paper and Best Poster Award was given at the end of each session to encourage the budding minds.
Around thirty scientific keynote sessions were showcased in the convention, which included many eminent speakers from around the globe. Dr. Cliff Ruddle instilled the young minds with immense knowledge, and his presentation highlighted a state-of-the-art file system that utilizes the most proven design features from the past, coupled with the most recent technological advances currently available.
The session by Dr. Kishore Gulabivala gave a thorough and clear insight about the current best evidence on the effect of each procedural step on the disease process and the technical (skills) and procedural facets that are likely to enhance periapical healing and patient satisfaction.

The congress also encountered the advent of new concepts and technologies. Dr. Yoshi Terauchi demonstrated a unique procedure as well as a standardized technique in combination with cone beam computed tomography for separated instrument retrieval. Where the middle third meets the remainder of the root is where the difference between a great outcome meets a mediocre outcome and the lecture by Dr. Vivek Hegde talked about the future - the obturation of the critical apical third!
