The section “Faculty Guidelines" below is dedicated to Chairperson & Speaker 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.
The Congress Committee requests speakers, judges and chairpersons to disclose a potential conflict of interest 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.
