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