With the exception of justified cases, no communication may be presented using a computer that is not provided by the conference organization. TIPS ON ORAL PRESENTATION Considering the limited presentation time available, adhere to the aims of the communication, avoiding unnecessary introductions or recaps. Structure the communication and do not forget that the average Congress participant  has, at the very least, sufficient knowledge. Present the important data in the communication clearly and concisely. Remove anything of less substance so that attention is not distracted from the essential points of the communication. The duration of the presentation will be 8 minutes + 2 minutes discussion. Due to schedule requirements, this presentation duration must be strictly respected. Every minute is precious in a public presentation, so do not waste time on issues already known to most of the audience. The keys to a good communication are: a limited number of concepts, explained clearly and with a good structure. It is not easy to speak succinctly but well.   This is a difficult exercise of synthesis, but it is essential for good communication For any questions concerning submissions, please send an email to,
