Information for speakers

1. Declaration of Conflict of Interest

EULAR has decided to follow increased regulatory requirements by providing a standard presentation template (PowerPoint) to all speakers in 16:9 which is the size request for congress presentations. We encourage you to use this standard template to declare your conflicts of interest related to your lecture / presentation. This slide should be included at the very beginning of your presentation slide set as requested by UEMS (European Union of Medical Specialists).

2. Technical Specifications for your Presentations

- Format: The presentation slides must be provided in PowerPoint for PC (.pptx, .ppt) on a USB drive. Presentations in Keynote, Prezi or other format will not be supported - Aspect ratio: Please format your slides in 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio for best result - Media: Any media must be embedded within the presentation file(s) - Fonts: We recommend that you use standard Windows PC font types such as Arial or Calibri. In case you have a specific font type that you would like to use, please make it available to the technical staff in the Speaker Preview Room

3. Technical Equipment for the Presentations

We would like to remind you of the available presentation equipment in the session rooms, so that you can best prepare your slides for an optimal performance. Please also keep in mind to check-in your presentation at least 60 minutes before the start of your session in the Speaker Preview Room in room K101/K102, near Hall 2, where our staff will also perform a technical check to ensure smooth running of the presentation.

4. Recording of Sessions

At EULAR 2018 in Amsterdam, we will continue the recording of sessions which we started at EULAR 2013 in Madrid. The recording includes the slides, the voice as well as a video of the speaker. These recordings will be available shortly after the congress for various access groups under various terms and conditions. The "Recording Agreement" will be presented to you for signature when you check in your presentation in the congress Speaker Preview Room in room K101/K102, near Hall 2. Of course you are at that point free to declare exclusion of your lecture (or part of it) from the recording. Please let us know if you want a copy of the agreement beforehand for information.
