This year, there are two sections for the Oral Presentations: PowerPoint Presentations and Poster Presentations. Both the PowerPoint and the Poster Presentations will have the following categories: Fundamental Sciences, Clinical Sciences and Surgical Sciences.
You may submit as many abstracts as you would like, but if more than one of your abstracts are accepted, please note that you will be contacted by our team to select which one of them will be presented, given that you can not present more than one abstract, regardless if they:
- are in different contests (Poster versus PowerPoint Presentations)
- are in different sections (Fundamental/Clinical/Surgical Sciences)
- are in different categories (Review/Original Study/Case Report).
All Poster Presentations will be held exclusively on-site on Friday, the 8th of December 2023. The PowerPoint Presentations will be held exclusively on-site on Saturday, the 9th of December 2023. The exact schedule and location information will be shared with the participants before the 25th of November. When submitting the abstract, every On-site Presenter gives their consent to have their name mentioned in the final ranking of the scientific papers. All participants will be able to attend the presentation of the abstracts and they will also have the right to ask questions to the On-Site Presenter. However, these are not mandatory events and cannot be booked by following the standard booking procedure. One can attend by simply coming to the auditorium at the mentioned presentation date and time. On-site places will be limited in accordance with the room capacity, health regulations and administrative decisions.
In advance, every participant that has been accepted for the Oral Presentations will have to send their visual support (.ppt/.pptx for the PowerPoint presentations or the electronic format of the Poster for the Poster Presentations) until the 28th of November 2023, 23:59 GMT+2 (Romanian time zone) at the e-mail address:firstname.lastname@example.org. Moreover, participants accepted for the Poster Presentations must ensure they hand over their poster to the Organising Committee during the check-in process.
The full time schedule will be available for the participants before the 25th of November 2023.
