Declaration 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 Scientific Programme Committee requests all persons to declare possible interest:
Chairpersons 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 ESC Asia with APSC and AFC will be available on ESC365 in several formats (slides) * when copyrights transferred to the ESC
