Technical Specifications and General Information for Presenters

We are grateful for your participation in the programme of EUROSPINE 2016!

Timing of Session

In order to keep the sessions running 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.

Regular Presentation: 5 minutes (plus discussion/change 3 min)
QuickFire Presentation: 3 minutes (plus discussion/change 2 min)

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 on the second slide. 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).
