English will be the official language of the Congress. There will be no simultaneous translation.
Computer projection facilities (for PowerPoint presentations) will be available in the meeting rooms. Presenting authors will receive all technical information and instructions prior to the Congress in order to ensure the smooth running of sessions.
Authors of the most highly ranked abstracts assessed by a selected panel of abstract reviewers may be invited to provide a short oral presentation during the appropriate thematic sessions. The authors will have 7 minutes for presentation + 2 minutes for discussion. A short PowerPoint presentation may be used, with the first slide disclosing any conflict of interest. Presenting authors will receive all technical information and details prior to the Congress.
Registration Note: At least one author (the first or the presenting author) must register for the Congress within one month of having received notification of acceptance. The abstract will otherwise be withdrawn from the programme.
Abstracts selected for e-posters will be available for viewing during the Congress in the e-Poster area. Approximately 40 computers will be provided and exclusively reserved for e-Poster consultation. Posters can be read sequentially by number, submission topic or searched individually by title, keyword or author.
All e-Posters must be submitted electronically through the M-Events website. Authors will receive an e-mail from M-Events (our service provider) with all technical information and details prior to the event.
