PowerPoint Template – Download (pptx)
Please put your surname in the filename of your presentation. e.g. ASCpresJohnSmith.pptx Do not use a generic filename such as ASC2013.pptx
Submit your presentation using the form at the bottom of this page.
To ensure that every speaker is presented in the most professional way, the following guidelines should apply:
- It is essential that all speakers check-in at the Speaker Support Centre at your soonest convenience and in any case not less than two sessions prior to your presentation. This is to ensure that the correct version of your presentation is transferred to the session room in good time, and to check that any embedded media such as video or audio files are working correctly on the Congress systems.
- ‘Last minute’ submissions hamper the speaker support operation, impacting negatively on your fellow presenters and significantly increasing the risk of there being a problem with your presentation.
- A PowerPoint template is available for downloading here: RACS_2013_Speaker_Template. The template reflects the theme for the Congress and provides examples of suggested text sizes and fonts. For guidelines on using the template, click here.
- Only presentations in PowerPoint are supported. Any variation to this format should be advised by Monday 15th April. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Presentations should be submitted for review at least two weeks in advance of the Congress: by Friday 19th April 2013. Presentations can be uploaded using the upload form at the bottom of this page.
- Please ensure that any media files (embedded movies and/or audio clips) are included when uploading your presentation.
- PC or Mac based PowerPoint formats are accepted.
- If you require assistance converting your presentation from print, photos, video etc. please contact Kojo not later than Monday 15h April 2013.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING DISCLOSURE OF POTENTIAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST
- RACS policy requires disclosure of all financial relationships between a speaker and the commercial supporter (if applicable) or with the manufacturer of any product or class of products they plan to discuss. This policy is designed to provide the audience with an opportunity to review any affiliations between a speaker and supporting organisations for the purpose of determining the potential presence of bias or influence over content.
- This policy is not intended to prevent a speaker with such an affiliation or relationship from participating.
- Disclosure should be made using a slide at the beginning of your presentation.
- Examples of relationships which should be disclosed include but are not limited to:
- any direct financial interest in a company whose interests are in the area(s) covered by the educational material
- investments held by the speaker in a relevant company
- membership on a relevant company’s advisory board or similar committee
- current or recent participation in a clinical trial sponsored by a relevant company
- assisting in the design of clinical studies concerning the use of products manufactured by a relevant company.
- participating in clinical studies using products produced by a relevant company.
- research by the speaker sponsored by a relevant company
- paid speaker by a relevant company.
- the speaker holds a patent for a product referred to in the presentation or marketed by a relevant company
- To ensure that audiences receive complete information, speakers who have no involvement with industry should inform the audience that they have nothing to disclose, i.e., cannot identify any potential conflict of interest.
