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 possible interest:
Speakers are requested to declare 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.
Chairpersons/Discussants/Judges are requested to declare interest regarding the topics of the presentations during the session on their first slide (if applicable) or orally at the beginning of the session.
This will allow the audience to take potential conflicts of interest into account when assessing the objectivity of the presentation.
We remind you that all presentations given and panel discussion in sessions at EuroPrevent 2018* in Ljubljana will be available on the Scientific Programme & Planner in several formats (slides & VOD)* when copyrights transferred to the ESC
Chairpersons should ensure the smooth progress of the session, time management as well as encourage discussions and interactions between faculty members and the audience by allowing sufficient time for questions from the audience.
We recommend to all chairpersons to liaise with the speakers presenting in their session as early as possible preferably prior to the congress.
