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 Congress Programme Committee requests all faculties to declare possible interest:

  1. Speakers are requested to declare interest regarding their current presentation on their first slide.
  2. Chairpersons / Discussants 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.
  3. Abstract Presenters are requested to disclose potential conflict of interests related to the Abstract presentation on the first slide of the presentation for oral Abstract presenters or on the poster for poster presenters. This will allow the audience to take potential conflicts of interest into account when assessing the objectivity of the presentation.
