The existence of potential conflicts of interest does not necessarily indicate a bias. However, it is our ethical obligation to inform organisers and participants so that they are made aware of any relationship that might cause unintentional bias.
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 Congress Programme Committee requests all persons to declare a possible interest:
Oral abstract Presenters are requested to declare a potential conflict of interest regarding their current presentation on their first slide which must be shown on the screen long enough for the audience to consider the information.
Poster Presenters are requested to disclose potential conflicts of interest regarding their current poster presentation at the bottom of their poster.
This will allow the audience to take potential conflicts of interest into account when assessing the objectivity of the presentation.
All presentations should be 16:9 formatted and have a 1280 x 720 minimum resolution.
They will be displayed from a PC with Windows 7 and PowerPoint 2016.
In order to ensure an optimal delivery of your presentation, please stick to the following guidelines in the preparation of your presentation:

We suggest you design your poster as follows:
The ESC does not allow QR codes on Posters. The text should be broken up by the inclusion of drawings and/or photos. The use of colour makes the poster more attractive and effective.
The ESC proposes to use the service of Call4Posters® poster printing to enable you to have your poster professionally printed, reviewed and shipped directly to the poster assistance desk. Competitive prices available. Your poster will be waiting for you onsite – no need to worry about carrying it on the plane. More information coming soon.
Maximum dimensions for the poster: 90cm (width) x 140cm (height) portrait orientation.
Please note these dimensions and keep for when you prepare your poster.
Posters on several sheets are not advised.
Please note that the use of the official ESC logos is not allowed on your poster. This also applies to ESC Association, Working Group and Council logos.
The title should be emphasised by the use of bold-face type. When displayed the letters used should not be smaller than 15 mm.
The sub-title should be printed in the same kind of lettering, but semi-bold and not less than 10 mm high when displayed. This guarantees clear reading even from a distance of 2-3 meters.
The text should be broken up by the inclusion of drawings and/or photos. The use of colour makes the poster more attractive and effective.
Material for mounting your poster to the poster board will be supplied by the ESC.
Please note the ESC cannot be held responsible for Posters displayed or left in the Poster area or in the Congress Centre. Posters must be collected after each session.
Please note that the Final Programme Number will be the reference number for your abstract, it will be used to mark the location of your assigned board.
