This year, there are two categories for the Oral Presentations: PowerPoint Presentations and Poster Presentations. Both the PowerPoint and the Poster Presentations will have the following sections: Fundamental Sciences, Clinical Sciences and Surgical Sciences.
All presentations, regardless of the category, will be held exclusively on-site on Saturday, the 26th of November 2022, starting at 4 pm UTC+2 (Eastern European Time – Bucharest).
The exact schedule and location information will be shared with the participants before the 15th of November. On-site Participants will be able to attend the presentation of the abstracts and they will also have the right to ask questions regarding the content of the presentations.
In advance, every participant that has been accepted for the Oral Presentation will have to send their visual support (.ppt/.pptx) until the 20th of November 2022, 23:59 UTC+2 (Eastern European Time – Bucharest) at the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The full time schedule will be available for the participants before the 1st of December 2021.
During presentations’ day, the order in which the sections will be presented during the PowerPoint/Poster Presentations is the following:
- Original Study
- Case Report
For each of the sections, the alphabetical order will be respected.
- The Presenters must be present 15 minutes before the start of the Oral Presentations competition.
- The Presenters cannot leave the room before the end of the last presentation from their section (Review, Original Study, Case Report); in the event in which they can not respect this rule, they will be disqualified.
- The Organising Committee of the IMSCB is not responsible if any of the conditions specified above is not met.
The official language of the Congress is English. This being given, the visual support (PowerPoint or Poster), the oral presentations and the short Q&A session for each participant will all be held in English. No other language is accepted.
As far as the visual support is concerned, please make sure you adhere to the rigours imposed here.
The presentation time for each participant will be 7 minutes for PowerPoint Presentations, and 5 minutes for Poster Presentations, followed by a 3-minute Q&A session (both the professors of the Scientific Committee and the other Presenters will be allowed to ask questions). You will be notified during the presentation when there are 3 minutes and respectively 1 minute left of the presentation time. Please note that exceeding the time limit will influence your final score!
Your speech should be clear and coherent. We kindly suggest that you speak freely, without using any supplementary support except the slides of the presentation. This is a simple manner to improve the Scientific Committee’s opinion on your public speaking abilities and to make an honest self-evaluation of your efforts. And do not forget: you are the best storyteller as far as the story of your research is concerned! Make the most of it!
