Declaration of interest

The existence of potential conflicts of interest does not necessarily indicate a bias. However, it is our ethical obligation to inform 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. This will allow the audience to take potential conflicts of interest into account when assessing the objectivity of the presentation.

When accepting the role(s) via the agreement form, Speakers/ Chairpersons/ Discussant / Presenter have declared possible conflict of interest.

At the congress, Speaker must declare possible conflict of interest regarding their current presentation on their first slide and Chairpersons/Discussants/Judges must declare possible conflict of interest regarding the topics of the presentations orally at the beginning of the session.
