Presentation Guidelines

Podium Presentations

All speakers are asked to hand in their presentation on a USB stick to the Speaker Preview Room at the very latest two hours before the session in which the presentation is scheduled to take place. The organisers cannot guarantee projection of presentations handed in later on.

The Speaker Preview Room is located in Bernini 1 at the Rome Marriott Park Hotel & Convention Centre and will be open during the Congress hours.

Computers will be available in the Speaker Preview Room for last-minute changes. The technicians will make sure that your presentation will be visible in the correct session hall. All session halls have a technician to assist you and are equipped with a laptop (PC) for power point projection. Speakers will not be allowed to use their own laptops during their presentations.

At the beginning of their presentation, all speakers must state to the audience that they are aware of and have disclosed any potential conflicts of interest or support that might cause a bias in their presentation.

Certificates of Free Paper Presentation and Short Free Paper Presentation will be handed out upon request in the Registration Area. A certificate will be available for each presenting author and only ONE certificate will be issued per abstract. Certificates of Poster Presentation will be sent by email to the presenting author after the Congress.


The e-posters will be available during the entire Congress via computers located in the Exhibition Hall (Tiziano Room). The list of e-posters can be downloaded from the SICOT website at www.sicot.org/rome-scientific-programme.

Each video includes indications, pre- and post-operative images, references, and many include outcomes information. The videos provide you with perspective from the surgeon’s point-of-view, and from the surgeon’s side of the table.
