Invited Speakers' and Oral Poster Presenters' Instructions
Please make sure that your PowerPoint presentation is in Widescreen (16:9).

Please upload the following via the Speakers' Portal by the extended deadline: Sunday, 19 May
- Your presentation slides (including your disclosure slide – click here for template) for review. You will receive an email explaining the process.
- Your conflict of interest (COI) form if you have not already submitted it
- Your completed COI resolution form if you declared a conflict of interest (you can download the form here)
