6–8 October, Vienna, Austria

General Guidelines

1. Upload your presentation prior to the meeting

On-site Speakers have the opportunity to upload their presentations prior to the meeting. We emphasize that you take this chance to avoid the crowds onsite. You will receive a personal E-Mail with a link to upload your presentation.

During the congress, an upload will be possible on-site (see 2) and still online. If you decide to upload your presentation(s) prior to the meeting, your presentation(s) will be ready for testing in the Preview Centre on-site. Speakers are reminded to check in at the Preview Centre's welcome desk at least 2 hours prior to their scheduled presentation, even if they have already uploaded their presentation prior to the meeting.

2. Deliver your presentation onsite

Speakers are requested to hand in their presentations to the Preview Centre staff not later than 2 hours before the beginning of their session, please check in even if they have already uploaded their presentation prior to the meeting.

3. Presentation Upload

Please read the Guidelines and Technical Specifications below carefully!

Timing of Session

In order to keep the sessions running according to schedule and allow questions from the audience it is very important to keep the presentations within the allotted time: your slides will fade automatically after the allotted time, there is a stopwatch running for your control.

In this respect we strongly recommend that speakers ensure that their presentation does not exceed the allotted time as we expect the chairperson to strictly adhere to the timetable. Stopping a speaker from completing a presentation is very embarrassing for everybody concerned and hopefully will not be necessary if everyone respects this requirement.

Abstract Presentation Times:
Oral Presentation: 5 minutes
QuickFire Presentation: 3 minutes

Conflict of Interest

EUROSPINE is committed to avoid potential conflicts of interest: any financial relationship between the speaker/chairperson and a company manufacturing or distributing a product must be disclosed and openly shared. Conflicts of interest need to be disclosed for each author during the upload in the presentation and will be shown automatically for 5 seconds before your presentation. Please note that you are requested to announce any potential conflict of interest on the second slide when uploading your presentation.
Your presentation cannot be shown if this is not included. Presentations that do not follow this prerequisite cannot be shown. During the presentation/discussion open publicity or unfair and/or unsupported information for products/organisations/business should be avoided. Commercial logos or photographs should not be used (other than in the designated industry workshops).
