The Congress Committee requests, abstract presenters to disclose potential conflict of interests related to the Abstract presentation on the first slide of the presentation for oral Abstract presenters or on the poster for poster presenters. This will allow the audience to take potential conflicts of interest into account when assessing the objectivity of the presentation. A potential conflict of interest may arise from various relationships, past or present, such as employment, consultancy, investments and stock ownership, funding for research, family relationship, etc.
The existence of potential conflicts of interest does not necessarily indicate a bias. However it is an ethical obligation to inform organisers and participants so that they are made aware of any relationship that might cause unintentional bias.
In order to ensure an optimal delivery of your presentation, please stick to the following guidelines in the preparation of your presentation:
All presentations should be 16:9 formated and have a 1280 x 720 minimun resolution.
They will be displayed from a PC with Windows 7 and PowerPoint 2016.
We kindly ask you to use the official ACCA 2018 powerpoint template for your presentation – available soon.
We strongly recommend that you upload your presentation in advance.
The Online Upload Service will open one week before the congress (the date will be confirmed at a later stage).

The title should be emphasised by the use of bold-face type. When displayed the letters used should not be smaller than 15mm.
The subtitle should be printed in the same kind of lettering, but semi-bold and not less than 10mm high when displayed.
This guarantees clear reading even from a distance of 2-3 meters.

The use of colour makes the poster more attractive and effective.
