Presentation and publication of accepted abstracts

  • Presidential Symposium – Oral presentations by authors of the very best submitted abstracts containing cutting-edge and significant clinical practice-changing studies, followed by expert discussion and perspectives.
  • Proffered Paper – Oral presentations by authors presenting original data of superior quality, followed by expert discussion and perspectives.
  • Poster Discussion – Presentation and analysis by an invited speaker highlighting important findings within a disease type or about a common theme plus interactive audience discussion. Poster Discussion posters will be displayed for the duration of the Congress, subject to the embargo policy, ie Late-Breaking Abstracts may only be displayed from the embargo time detailed in the schedule below.
  • Poster – Display sessions for review, discussion and questions. Rotated by category, posters will be displayed for one day of the Congress and the presenting authors must be available for Q&A for one hour to represent their work.
