Guidelines for presentations

ORAL PRESENTATIONS

ORAL PRESENTATIONS

The best 40 abstracts will be presented as an oral presentation during the Scientific Programme of the 16th Congress of ECCO in the Plenary hall.

Note: Oral presentations will not be displayed as hard copy posters. 

Guidelines for Oral Presentations

ECCO invites the authors of the top 40 abstracts to present their studies as Oral Presentations (OP) as part of the Scientific Programme at the 16th Congress of ECCO. The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation values your careful attention to the presentation guidelines below.

Preparing Your Presentation 

Immediately inform the ECCO Office of any changes in title, presenting author or mailing address

General Format

  • Title
  • Conflicts of interest (CoI): The ECCO Office prepares this CoI slide based on your ICMJE Form for Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest. Add this as the 2nd slide to your presentation.
  • Background
  • Methods
  • Results
  • Conclusion

Compose a PowerPoint presentation that covers the background, method, result and conclusion of your abstract. Keep data on every slide simple.

Time Frame

ECCO allots 10 minutes for every Oral Presentation. However, authors should limit their presentations to 7-8 minutes, to allow 2-3 minutes for questions from the audience and chairpersons. Abide by the general principle of 1 slide/minute. Should your presentation exceed the allotted time, chairpersons of the Scientific Programme are granted the liberty to interrupt and discontinue your presentation.

PowerPoint Template

The ECCO Office strongly encourages the use of the ECCO PowerPoint presentation template for all Oral Presentations. Do not alter the slide size of the template (Standard 16:9 format) - only this format can be correctly displayed in the session rooms.

Content
Sources of presented data, especially sources from industry, must be specified at all times. Follow standard scientific principles on all slides, including industry-provided slides (i.e. protect patient confidentiality, cite all references, etc.). Industry logos and the advertising of products on slides are strictly prohibited.

Consider contrast when adding radiographs to your presentation because dark slides are difficult to view in a large, dimmed auditorium. Consider readability in the composition of your presentation (i.e. observe colour contrast on data slides, avoid the use of red font on a dark background).

Language

All presentations must be in English. Discuss only the major points of your work that support the conclusions of your abstract. Keep details brief and apportion your ideas appropriately.

NEW: PRE-RECORDINGS

Please note that for the first time all sessions will be pre-recorded for ECCO’21. This pre-recording is not an alternative for holding your talk in person. In the unfortunate case that due to an ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions you are not able to hold your talk, the pre-recordings will be shown onsite and/or online on the ECCO Website. All accepted speakers will be asked to reserve a time slot to pre-record the talk. Further instructions how to do so will be sent out via e-mail.

Speakers’ Centre

Upload your Oral Presentation to the congress venue server by visiting the Speakers’ Centre onsite (no private computers may be used in the Plenary Hall). Should you choose to bring your PowerPoint presentation saved on a USB drive, please make sure that it holds all presentation elements (e.g. embedded video files, extra fonts, and special graphs/images).

Once uploaded, speakers can preview their presentations. Your presentation will be automatically transmitted from the Speakers’ Centre to the Plenary Hall at the time of your presentation. The Speakers’ Centre is staffed by specially trained personnel who will gladly address any questions or concerns onsite.

Kindly upload your presentation to the Speakers’ Centre at least 3 hours before your presentation in the Scientific Programme.

Onsite Schedule                                      

Prepare ample time between your arrival and the time of presentation. The Scientific Programme follows a strict schedule, leaving little to no room for delay. Plan your arrival to the Plenary Hall at the very latest 10 minutes prior to start of the session in which you speak, remembering that your presentation must be uploaded at the Speakers’ Center 3 hours prior. Introduce yourself to the session chairpersons and strictly observe their instructions as they may reiterate adherence to the time allotted for your talk.

DIGITAL ORAL PRESENTATIONS

DIGITAL ORAL PRESENTATIONS

Abstracts have been selected from the ranking by taking 90 abstracts after those 40 selected for oral presentation in the Scientific Programme. These abstracts will be presented as a digital oral presentation, with a 5 minute oral presentation in a room on Thursday, July 8, 2021 or on Friday, July 9, 2021.

There will be five rooms, each equipped with power point AV and podium for speaker and two chairpersons, and chairs for audience. Each room will host 9 digital oral presentations around a common theme per day, with each presentation limited to 6 slides and 5 minutes duration (followed by 1-2 minutes discussion).

Note: Digital oral presentations will not be displayed as hard copy posters.

Guidelines for Digital Oral Presentations

Every year, ECCO invites the authors of 90 abstracts to present their studies as digital oral presentations (DOP). DOPs are 5 minute oral presentations held on either Thursday, July 8, 2021 at 17:30-18:30 or Friday, July 9, 2021 at 17:25-18:25. The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation values your careful attention to the presentation guidelines below.

Preparing Your Presentation

General Format

Summarize your study in no more than 7 slides and keep each slide simple:

  • Title
  • Conflicts of interest (CoI): The ECCO Office prepares this CoI slide based on your ICMJE Form for Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest. Add this as the 2nd slide to your presentation.
  • Background
  • Methods
  • Results
  • Conclusion

DOP Session Format

5 DOP Sessions run parallel on the dates listed above. Each session is categorised thematically. One session holds 9 individual digital oral presentations and the schedule is strict. Allotted time slots cannot be extended.

Time Frame

Your presentation is limited to 5 minutes, followed by 1-2 minutes for questions from the session’s chairpersons and the audience. Should your presentation exceed the allotted time, DOP chairpersons are granted the liberty to interrupt and discontinue your presentation.

PowerPoint Template

The ECCO Office strongly encourages the use of the ECCO PowerPoint presentation template for all Digital Oral Presentations. Do not alter the slide size of the template (Standard 16:9 format) - only this format can be correctly displayed in the session rooms.

Content

Follow standard scientific principles on every slide (i.e. protect patient confidentiality, cite all references, etc.). Industry logos are strictly prohibited on Digital Oral Presentation slides. Consider readability in the composition of your presentation (i.e. observe colour contrast on data slides, avoid the use of red font on a dark background).

All presentations must be held in English. Discuss only the major points of your work that support the conclusions of your abstract. Keep details brief and apportion your ideas appropriately.

Kindly upload your presentation to the Speakers’ Centre at least 3 hours before beginning of the DOP Session.

Onsite Schedule                                      

Prepare ample time between your arrival and the time of presentation. Because one speaker may have multiple presentations in parallel sessions, the DOP programme observes a strict schedule, leaving no room for delay. Plan your arrival to the lecture hall 10 minutes prior to the start of the DOP Session, remembering that your presentation must be uploaded at the Speakers’ Centre 3 hours prior. Introduce yourself to the DOP Session chairpersons and strictly observe their instructions as they may reiterate adherence to the time allotted for your talk.
