Faculty guidelines

ICNC - Nuclear Cardiology & Cardiac CT

The section “Faculty Guidelines" below is dedicated to Chairpersons & Speakers giving a lecture

Declaration of Interest

The Congress Committee requests speakers, judges and chairpersons to disclose 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.

Chairperson Guidelines

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 who will put you in contact with the team involved in your session.

Speaker Guidelines

General Information:

  • Your presentation is confirmed on your agreement form and via the reminders sent by the Scientific Programme Department.
  • Timing allotted to your presentation includes the time you need to allow for questions from chairpersons and the audience as we strongly encourage the interaction in our scientific sessions.
  • Your Declaration of interest will either be automatically inserted when you upload your presentation or you can choose to insert your own slide.
