Which reference number should I use when I send a query to the Congress Secretariat?
The personal ID Reference Number that you received when you submitted your abstract should be mentioned in all correspondence.
I am not the first author; can I present the poster on behalf of my colleagues?
Presentation by a second author may be allowed. Once your registration has been completed, please contact email@example.com. Please note however that each author is permitted to present only once during the congress (not including invited lectures).
Can the presenting author pay one-day registration fee (for the day when the poster is displayed)?
No. Once an abstract has been approved, the presenting author must register for the entire congress for final acceptance. An abstract presenter may not register as a day delegate. Non-registered authors may be excluded from publication.
I am an invited speaker in the congress programme; do I need to submit an abstract?
Invited speakers are not required to submit abstracts to illustrate their talks.
I have been selected for a platform session but I would have preferred a poster presentation, what can I do?
During the abstract submission process you were asked if you would prefer poster or oral (platform) presentation, or if you do not have a preference.
The Abstract Review Committee (ARC) took this preference into account and did not select an abstract for platform presentation if the submitter indicated that s/he does not want a platform presentation.
However, if you indicated that you had no preference between poster and platform presentation, then the ARC has selected your work to be presented in a platform session because they felt that it was of high quality and that a large audience would be interested in knowing more about the study. It would be a shame not to use this opportunity to present your work! However if you are unable to make an oral presentation please contact the secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org for alternative arrangements.
How do I find information about posters?
All information relating to posters is available on the poster information page.
