The section “Faculty Guidelines" below is dedicated to Chairpersons & Speakers giving a lecture.
Please consult the page “Presenter guidelines” for Presenter giving an Oral Abstract Presentation (Young Investigator Award Session, Rapid Fire session, Oral abstract presentation), Moderated Poster or Poster presentation. (This page will be available at a later stage).
The Congress Committee requests speakers, judges and chairpersons to disclose a potential conflict of interests regarding the topics of the presentations during the introduction of the session for chairpersons or on the first slide of the presentation for speakers. This will allow the audience to take potential conflicts of interest into account when assessing the objectivity of the presentation. 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 existence of potential conflicts of interest does not necessarily indicate a bias. However, it is an ethical obligation to inform organisers and participants so that they are made aware of any relationship that might cause unintentional bias.
Speakers are requested to declare interest regarding their current presentation on their first slide.
Chairpersons/Panellists/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.
Chairpersons should ensure the smooth progress of the session, time management and additionally encourage discussions and interactions between faculty members and the audience by allowing sufficient time for questions from the audience. We recommend that all chairpersons liaise with the speakers presenting in their session as early as possible preferably prior to the congress. In order to contact the speakers involved in your session please contact the Scientific Programme Department of the ESC Congress Division who will put you in contact with the team involved in your session.
We also advise you to use the official EHRA 2018 Powerpoint Template.
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 2017.
In order to ensure an optimal delivery of your presentation, please stick to the following guidelines in the preparation of your presentation:
Download the EHRA 2018 Official Speaker Slide
Speakers invited to present in Mobile App Interactive sessions will be contacted before the congress by the EHRA scientific department to schedule an onsite rehearsal meeting. Speakers are asked to include " Question Slides" in their presentation
The sessions must contain a high level of interactivity with the audience and the material must be suitable for educational purposes.
