A powerpoint presentation needs to be prepared and uploaded prior to the congress. 
The format for PowerPoint presentations is 16:9. 
Please make sure to include a slide indicating any conflict of interest. A template can be downloaded through this website (via button "COI template").

Guidelines for Presenters


For abstracts which have been accepted as a poster, a physical poster has to be prepared and brought to Basel. Posters have to be put up on the designated poster boards (please check the respective put-up times). A presentation during the poster session (Sunday-Wednesday, 09:30 - 10:30) is mandatory.

In addition to the presentation of the physical poster, all poster authors (with registration fee paid) will be invited to upload a digital version of their poster. The digital posters will be uploaded to the E-Poster terminals and can be browsed by delegates during the whole congress.

Please keep in mind that the E-Poster upload is an additional opportunity. It does not replace the presentation of the physical poster. E-Poster upload is possible between 30 June and 25 August.

Please find detailed instructions below the "E-Poster" section. 



Abstracts which have been accepted as E-Posters, need to be uploaded digitally.
