Presentations by the invited speakers, Dr. K. Padmavathy and Dr. Krithika Datta on Clinical research in Microbiology and Clinical research methodology respectively gave a new insight into these subjects. They are bound to motivate and involve many youngsters into clinical research. It also dispelled the impression that clinical research is time-consuming, and expensive to undertake. We are immensely pleased with overwhelming response and the resounding success of the convention. As compared to last year there were more participants with increase in oral and poster presentations. The papers were not merely quantitatively more but also qualitatively very impressive. The fact that those papers were submitted by post-graduate students and young faculties augurs well for a bright future in clinical research.

At the end of the convention it was decided to encourage cross-sectional studies of regional population, randomized control trial with proper guidelines such as CONSORT guidelines, intervention studies, studies of screening and diagnostic test, outcome studies, case-control series, and surveys with high response rate. Regarding case reports, cases with high clinical significance or implications with proper documentation, high quality images, proper post-endodontic restoration with 12-18 months follow up will be given priority.
