INFORMATION FOR PRESENTERS
Uploading your presentation
All presenters (live presentations, on-demand presentations and ePoster presentations)
will receive a message with detailed information on how to present at the Virtual Congress
(including an upload link and technical details).
The material needs to be uploaded via a personalized link that will be sent to all presenters.
There will be technical support available for your upload. Details will be communicated.
Presenting at the EHMSG Virtual Conference
There will be scheduled slots for all presentations during the virtual congress. There will be a chat
function as well as a live Q&A for the live sessions. The presenters are kindly asked to be present
during the scheduled time to ensure interaction with the audience via the moderator of the session.
Session Structure for Live Presentations
All sessions include pre-recordings as well as a live component. We want to make sure to retain as much human interaction as possible.
Prior to the session, all lectures are recorded and uploaded to our system. They need to be of an exact length (as indicated in your information mailing) to ensure smooth development of the session.
Please leave time for discussion. If your recording is too long, the time for discussion will be lost, which is one major component in the meeting
At the scheduled timeslot of the session, the chairperson of the session will open the session and introduce the speakers.
Then the recording of the first lecture will be played. At all times there is a live-chat available, where all participants can contribute to the session or ask questions which will be monitored by the moderator.
After each lecture, there is some time reserved for a discussion with the chairperson. Lecturers and chairpersons therefore need to be online at the scheduled timeslot. They will discuss questions from the audience or further details of the session.
This is the same procedure for all lectures – after the last one, the chairperson has a few more minutes to close the session and address any last-minute questions.
Commercial Disclosure information
Due to EACCME regulations, authors are requested to disclose possible conflicts of interest on the first slide. An example slide can be found here.
A conflict of interest is any situation in which a speaker or immediate family members have interests, and those may cause a conflict with the current presentation. Conflicts of interest do not preclude the delivery of the talk, but should be explicitly declared. These may include financial interests (eg. owning stocks of a related company, having received honoraria, consultancy fees), research interests (research support by grants or otherwise), organisational interests and gifts.
If you have nothing to disclose, please state “I have no commercial disclosure” instead of the table.
As for the face-to-face congress the dress code is business casual. Please wear the same clothes for your presentation pre-recording as well as for the Q&A as you would have at the face-to-face meeting.
