• 8.6. Scientific Presentations All abstracts accepted for the Scientific Programme (papers and posters) should be published. The Executive Committee should decide where these abstracts should be published and whether and where any other scientific material from the Congress should be published. This publication should be made available to Congress participants. An effort to avoid duplication of published material should be made. The working language is English. The Congress President should determine before the meeting of the Scientific Committee the absolute number of oral presentations and posters that can be accepted, given the nature of the Congress Centre, the rooms, publication requirements and the time available.
  • 8.7. Invited Speakers It is the right of the Congress President to choose the invited speakers. The Congress President should consider suggestions from the Congress Scientific Committee. The overriding consideration should be the individual scientific standing of the nominee and the appropriateness of his contribution to the theme of the meeting. Emphasis should be placed on the selection of European scientists and doctors. Only if the contribution is thought outstanding or unique, should overseas guests be invited to proffer scientific work. The Congress will, however, remain an open forum for international scientific discussion, where colleagues from all over the world are encouraged to submit their work to the Congress Scientific Committee. It is preferable not to have parallel sessions at the time of the invited speaker presentations.
  • 8.8. Session Chairs There should be a minimum of two Chairs per session. It is the right of the Congress President to appoint these taking note of recommendations by the Chairman of the Congress Scientific Committee. It is essential that the Chairs are properly briefed in writing as to their role. This is particularly true for the Chairs of the poster discussion sessions.
  • 8.9. Posters Posters should be displayed throughout the time of the Congress. The posters may be categorized into two groups. A smaller group for discussion, chosen from the higher marked abstracts and a larger group for display only. Discussion of posters should be part of the Scientific Programme.
