In order to give you more visibility, we propose that you update your Speaker Profile; your information will be available in connection with your presentation(s).
Please access or re-access your Speaker Profile, as some mandatory consents have been added to allow us to display the information you shared.
Doing so now, you will save time onsite or at the time of online upload. You can do this at any time - update your Speaker Profile.
Speakers can come to the Speaker Service Centre to upload their presentation or review their previously uploaded version as well as for technical assistance from the dedicated team.
There are dedicated areas for Speakers uploading presentations with Question Slides for the audience (no online upload possible) and for Session Briefings (when organised)
A faculty lounge will allow you to relax, meet with colleagues and discuss your presentations. Desk and power plugs are also available in the lounge if you need to finalise your presentation before uploading.
The Practice Stage: we have recreated a lecture room stage for you to test the functionalities available and the Presentation Management System at the lectern. Please note that the Presentation Management System available in the lecture room now offers additional functionalities such as Preview Next Slides, Timer and Notes. Come and test it.
Upon arrival at the SSC, your badge will be scanned by the hostess
You will also have the option to take a new picture at the Photo booth should you wish to update your picture.
The presentation management screen for the speaker in the lecture room provides options designed to enhance and facilitate your intervention on stage.
The audience does not see the full eLectern view. ONLY the slide shown at the time on the main window of the eLectern is visible to the audience. We advise you to come and test the eLectern on the Practice Stage in the Speaker Service Centre.
We remind you that if you have granted the ESC copyright to your presentation, it will be referenced on ESC 365. If you have not granted ESC copyrights but wish to do so, you can change this by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or do so at the speaker service centre by signing a copyright transfer statement.

In order to comply with some sessions with specific content and technology requirements (Mobile App Voting functionality), session briefings will be organised for some special sessions.
The briefing room is located in Speaker Service Centre.
This is the opportunity for chairpersons and discussants to familiarise themselves with the cases to be presented and coordinate the discussions which should ensue during the dedicated discussion time in the session. An email with instructions and schedule will be sent to the faculty involved in the session.
If you are involved in a special format session, please consult the session instructions shown in your 'Agreement form' which detail specific information for the session. Additional information will be communicated by email.

Speakers invited to present in a Interactive Voting session are asked to include "Question Slides" in their presentation.
A demonstration video will be played at the start of the session.
As Speaker, before you ask your question to the audience, please warn the audience to get the device out and start the vote.
Specific instructions: How to insert a Question Slide
The session must contain a high level of interactivity with the audience and the material must be suitable for educational purposes.
Your presentation and question slide(s) must be uploaded and tested at the Speaker Service Centre (SSC) so that they can be tagged with a "Vote" button.
You can test the functionality during the session briefing at the Speaker Service Centre and on the Practice Stage.
All presentations should be 16:9 formatted and have a 1280 x 720 minimum resolution.

We recommend that you use the Heart Failure 2020 Slide Template for your presentation.
In order to ensure optimal delivery of your presentation, please stick to the following guidelines in the preparation of your presentation:
Personal laptop computers cannot be connected to the projectors in lecture rooms and presentations cannot be loaded directly onto the computer in the lecture rooms. Presentations must be uploaded via our service (online or at the Speaker Service Centre)
If your presentation is on a Mac computer, we recommend you ONLY provide a Windows compatible file and meet with the technician in the Speaker Service Centre to either make sure that your presentation will run properly on the PC’s or to anticipate a backup solution.
If you have technical questions regarding your presentation before the congress, you may contact the audiovisual service: contact us
The Online Upload Service will be available one week before the congress and we advise you to use this service to upload your presentation(s) in advance.
The Online Upload Service is fast and easy to use. To upload your presentation sign in to your My ESC Account on My ESC/My Agreements.
Once connected, you will see under the presentation title a link to upload.
Presentations can be uploaded online until midnight (GMT+1) the night before the presentation is scheduled to take place. So even whilst at the congress, you can use this service.
Please note that some Special Session requiring prior slide coordination or technical assistance at upload (insert question) may not be open for ONLINE UPLOAD. You can upload presentations for which you see the Online Upload Link under Presentation Title, otherwise, it means you should go to the Speaker Service Center.
It is important to remind the audience that the presentations given in the sessions will be available on ESC365 within a few hours of the session. ESC 365 has been recently upgraded with improved features and search functionality.
