General information

The scientific committee of the 4th Biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress has reserved room for free oral presentations in addition to poster sessions. Posters can be displayed for the full duration of the congress (4 days), depending on the time of arrival. Oral presentations are normally 15 minutes with 5 minutes for discussion; laptops and projectors are the standard audiovisual equipment in each oral session. All presenters must upload their Keynote - or Powerpoint presentations online to have them pre-loaded on the session computers. Individual presentations then begin with the click of a mouse.

Please check the appropriate box on the submission form to indicate whether or not your proposal should be considered for oral presentation or only for poster presentation. All poster presenters will present for a two hour period each day. The committee will accept a total of 50 oral presentations. Paper abstracts previously presented or published may not be submitted without modification. Original work must be changed or expanded, resulting in a new abstract.

Meeting registration guidelines for presenters

Oral free papers and poster presenters must register for the meeting and pay the applicable registration fee. Presenters are also responsible for all personal expenses (e.g. travel, hotel). You are encouraged to register for the meeting and to reserve hotel accomodations as early as possible to ensure that space is available.

Policy on commercial support

Presentations must avoid commercialism. Presentations that constitute promotion and advertising will not be accepted. If the cost of a presentation has been underwritten to any extent, a clear acknowledgement stating the support and identifying the source should be included in the abstract. Statements made in presentations are the sole responsibility of the author or presenter. Submissions will be reviewed and rated by members of the scientific committee who have expertise in the clinical area to which the submission belongs. Each submission will be reviewed for its scientific or clinical importance, ethical practice, and study design.
