Presenter guidelines



Conflict of interest

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.
