Live Talks

Live means that the session will be streamed live via the virtual platform at the date and time indicated above. The “live” element only refers to the live Q&A / discussion. The presentation itself needs to be pre-record by the speaker and uploaded to the virtual platform ahead of the meeting. Detailed technical instructions on how to prepare and upload your pre-recorded presentation are included in this email.

To make the virtual meeting more interactive and exciting for participants, you are kindly asked to be present during the live session in which your talk is scheduled and to answer questions from the audience.

Participants are asked to ask questions through the chat function within the virtual meeting platform. Questions will be monitored by the session moderators in the session chat and will be directed to you after your pre-recorded presentation has been played. Further information on how to access the speakers/moderators section of the virtual conference platform will follow by beginning of October.

All live presentations will be available on the virtual platform on the day of the conference and then moved to the on-demand section after the virtual conference on October 22, 2021 and remain available there for review (for registered participants only) until one month after the conference. In case you do not agree to leave your talk for an on-demand review after October 22, 2021, please inform us immediately.

On-Demand / Recording of your talk

On behalf of the EATCB, we would like to ask you for your permission to make the presentation you will be giving during the conference available for an on-demand review to registered participants after the conference.

Presentations will be available for registered participants only. After this period, the whole channel + all presentations will be permanently deleted.

  • As the presentation will be available online, please ensure that all compliances are stated within the presentation and that all imprints are indicated.

Please kindly inform us if you do not agree so that we can plan accordingly.

Commercial Disclosure information

The conference has applied for CME accreditation. Due to EACCME regulations, authors are requested to disclose possible conflicts of interest on the first slide. An example slide can be found here (pptx file).

A conflict of interest is any situation in which a speaker or immediate family members have interests, that may cause a conflict with the current presentation. Conflicts of interest do not preclude the delivery of the talk but should be explicitly declared. These may include financial interests (e.g., owning stocks of a related company, having received honoraria, consultancy fees), research interests (research support by grants or otherwise), organizational interests and gifts.

If you have nothing to disclose, please state “I have no commercial disclosure” instead of the table.
