    Because of the severe time constraints of the Congress, only a small number of selected Oral Presentation slots will be available. Presenting authors will be informed and offered an alternative presentation category (e.g. poster) if their abstract is not selected for oral presentation. All oral presentations will have a scheduled day and time, which will be shared with the presenting authors once the program has been finalized. Oral presentations will consist of a 8-minute presentation with 6 minutes discussion between every 3 presentations.


    There will be several ePoster viewing sessions throughout the duration of the Congress. Each ePoster will have a specified time during which the judges will review the presentation. Please be sure that that the presenting author is present at the poster for the judging process during these times. Be prepared to provide a 5 minute oral summary of your poster, followed by a 3 minute review and discussion.

    ePoster development guidelines and templates will be sent to submitters with abstracts accepted for ePoster presentation, by June 23, 2017.

    ePosters will be displayed electronically for the duration of the conference.


    Presentations of videos will be followed by a short discussion. The film duration should not exceed 7 minutes. This will be followed by 5 minutes of facilitated discussion. The author should be present to narrate (in clear English).

    Video guidelines
    Formats – Video Presentations will be allowed in the following format:  WMV files only (up to 100Mb). Slide shows using Microsoft Power Point are accepted though strongly discouraged.
    Video Length – It is your responsibility to prepare your presentation to fit within the allowed time frame of 7 minutes for video presentations before a panel of experts, which will be followed by a 5-minute review and discussion. It is important to keep to the allotted time – for logistical reasons, as well as out of respect for co-presenters. Time keeping will be strict.

    Video Submission – WMV files only (up to 100Mb). Upload available in the online submission form.



    All presentations will be adjudicated, and an award will be granted to 3 best presentations in each category (oral, poster and video).
