ORAL PRESENTATIONS:

PLEASE NOTE: IN COMPLIANCE WITH EACCME REQUIREMENTS ALL ORAL PRESENTERS ARE REQUESTED TO INCLUDE A SLIDE DISCLOSING CONFLICTS OF INTEREST (COI) AT THE BEGINNING OF THEIR PRESENTATION

Please click here to download a template of the disclosure slide.

Please note that product names should not be mentioned in presentations. Use only generic drug names. Company names are allowed but they must be disclosed on the COI slide.

If using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other format, such as PDF ), please note you need to bring it on a  Memory stick (using the USB port on the computer) and load it on one of the Congress computers in the Speakers' Ready Room, at least 1 hour before the start of the session.

Please use 16:9 slide size for your presentation.

If combining video films with PowerPoint, please make sure to check it in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during a coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session - even after checking it in the Speakers' Ready Room.

Alternatively, you may supply your own laptop computer. In such a case please confirm that it has a VGA or an HDMI socket for external signal and come to check it first in the Speakers' Ready Room as soon as you arrive and again later on in the session hall where your lecture is taking place, during the coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.

We strongly recommend not using your own computers for presentation. Please note that the time used for connecting your own computer will be deducted from the total presentation time.

Please note that the computers in the session halls are being supplied with Office 2013 or higher.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR MACINTOSH USERS

In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer please note that you need to prepare it according to the instructions below, before bringing it to the Speakers' Ready Room:

  • Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc. (special fonts might be changed to a default font on a PowerPoint based PC).
  • Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).

You may use your own Macintosh laptop computer. In such a case please confirm that it has a VGA or an HDMI socket for external signal and come to check it first in the Speakers' Ready Room as soon as you arrive and again later on in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during the coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.
