Presentation guidelines

Oral Presentations

All speakers are asked to hand in their presentation on a USB stick to the speaker preview room, at the very latest one hour before the session in which the presentation is scheduled to take place. The organisers cannot guarantee projection of presentations handed in later on.


The speaker preview room is located opposite the registration desk in the Congress Lobby at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre (Svenska Mässan).


Computers will be available in the room for last-minute changes. The technicians will make sure that your presentation will be visible in the correct session hall. All session halls have a technician to assist you and are equipped with a laptop (PC) for power point projection. Speakers will not be allowed to bring their own laptops into the session halls.


At the beginning of their presentation, all speakers must state to the audience that they are aware of and have disclosed any potential conflicts of interest or support that might cause a bias in their presentation.


Put your poster number (abstract number) in the upper left corner of the poster. The title of the poster should be in bold, and the author´s name, institute, city and country should be placed across the width of the whole poster. The abstract body should contain an introduction, material(s) and method(s), results, discussion and conclusion(s). Feel free to use colours and photos or drawings to catch the eye!

The poster exhibition will be located directly between the session halls and the exhibition area. You are kindly asked to mount your poster on Tuesday, 31 August from 10.00 onwards. The posters will be on display throughout the Conference.

The size of the poster boards is 120 x 90 cm (height x width). Please mount your poster on the assigned poster board marked with your poster number (abstract number). Poster-mounting material for the poster boards will be provided in the exhibition area.  

Please make sure you remove all poster-mounting material from the board after the Conference. The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre will dispose of all posters that have been left behind. The Conference organisers decline any responsibility for the condition of posters not removed by the presenters and no poster will be forwarded to presenters after the Conference.
