I am a speaker in the Congress programme; do I need to submit an abstract?

Speakers are not required to submit abstracts to illustrate their talks.


How do I find out information about the posters?

All information relating to poster and platform sessions will be available on the Congress website from May 2014.

More information will be available in May 2014.


Can I include videos beside my poster?

AV equipment is not provided by the congress. Should you wish to order any specific equipment to complement your poster, please contact the Congress Secretariat in order to receive a quotation.


How can I make my poster more attractive?

Please note that the colourful posters are more effective and attractive. When choosing a background, remember that neutral or grey colours will be easier on the eyes than a bright colour. Colour photos also look best when mounted on a grey background. Poster dimensions will be specified in April 2014.


I have been selected for a platform session but I would have preferred a poster presentation, what can I do?

The SAC has selected your work to be presented in a platform session because they felt that it was of high quality and that a large audience would be interested in knowing more about the study. It would be a shame not to use this opportunity to present your work! However if you are unable to make an oral presentation please contact the secretariat at abstracts@epilepsycongress.org for alternative arrangements.
