All speakers are asked to bring their presentation slides (in pptx format) to the Speaker Slide Center in the Veder Room We kindly ask you to do this at least 2 hours before your session starts.

Duration of presentations

  • Plenary presentations

    20 minutes speaking time, including 5 minutes for Q&A

As speaker, arrive at your assigned meeting room at least 10 minutes before the session starts.
Speakers should take place in the front row seats to allow smooth transition from one talk to another.

Important: disclosure slide

In compliance with the EACCME (European accreditation) requirements all speakers are request to include a disclosure slide at the beginning of their presentation. In this slide you can mention whether or not you have potential conflict of interest to report and explain how it has been resolved. A conflict of interest is any situation in which a speaker or immediate family members have interests, and those may cause a conflict with the current presentation. Conflicts of interest do not preclude the delivery of the talk, but should be explicitly declared. These may include financial interests (eg. owning stocks of a related company, having received honoraria, consultancy fees), research interests (research support by grants or otherwise), organizational interests and gifts. If you have nothing to disclose, please state “I have no commercial disclosure” instead of the table.
