Declaration of interest

The existence of potential conflicts of interest does not necessarily indicate a bias. However, it is our ethical obligation to inform 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 relationships etc. This will allow the audience to take potential conflicts of interest into account when assessing the objectivity of the presentation.

When accepting the role(s) via the Agreement form, Speakers/ Chairpersons/ Discussant / Presenter have declared a possible conflict of interest. This information is accessible to edit and update as may be required. It is the person's responsibility to ensure the information is up to date both in the system and on the slide which will be shown at the start of the presentation.

IMPORTANT

At the congress, the Speaker must declare a possible conflict of interest regarding their current presentation - a DOI slide is automatically generated by the upload system based on the information entered in the agreement form and placed as a second slide. 
We request the DOI Slide be displayed and read out loud to give the audience sufficient time to take note of the conflicts disclosed.

Chairpersons/Discussants/Judges must declare possible conflicts of interest regarding the topics of the presentations orally at the beginning of the session.
