General

There is no time in the conference schedule for over-running and the moderators of each session are under strict instructions to finish promptly. A queueing system is in use and if requested by the chairperson, please summarise and complete the presentation immediately.

Financial/Commercial & MHRA Declarations

All presentations should include after the title slide, a separate slide stating a declaration of any sources of commercial sponsorship, honoraria etc. If there are no relevant sources, please include a statement to that effect. If for example, the paper concerns failure of a device (but not limited to), please include a statement to confirm that this has been reported to the MHRA. In addition, please state if ‘off label’ use of a drug or device is to be discussed in your presentation.

Scientific Sessions

Please ensure that the presentation lasts 6 minutes or less, leaving 2 minutes for questions and debate. If you talk for more than 6 minutes, you will be interrupted and asked to sum up in 30 seconds to allow time for questions.

Plenary Sessions

Please note the duration of each presentation according to the programme or as indicated by the session chairperson and allow an appropriate period for questions at the end of your talk.

Workshops/Masterclasses

Please contact meeting@bsir.org for advice (if necessary) on structure.

BSIR Workshops, Masterclasses and Fundamentals – definition with text for invitations

Workshop

This session is an interactive seminar by one or two speakers. It should be power point based which is used to set the scene, allowing plenty of time for Questions & Answers and can include a table top demonstration of kit if you wish. The level for this session is ‘General’.

Masterclass

This session usually comprises several tabletop stations demonstrating kit; tips & tricks. It is meant to be a relatively unscripted “ask the experts” session, driven by audience’s needs. Phantoms can be used where possible. There will be teams of 2 per station. The level is meant to be ‘Advanced’. Once everyone who is participating in the running of the session has confirmed we will put you in touch so you can decide how exactly you want to run it and will have two leads to co-ordinate the session.

Fundamentals

This session is a video based session demonstrating best practice principles. The level it is aimed at is ‘Beginners/Refreshers’.

Level: Beginners/Refreshers
