ORAL PRESENTATION GUIDELINES

Oral presenters will be allowed 12 minutes for presentation followed by a brief question period for discussion and questions from the audience. Time limits will be strictly adhered to, so please ensure that your talk fits comfortably within the 12 minutes you are allotted. If time allows, at the end of each session there will be an open question period where the audience will have a chance to address all of the speakers from that session. As a result, speakers should plan to attend the entire session in which they are speaking.

MINI REVIEW GUIDELINES

Time limits will be strictly adhered to, so please ensure that your talk fits comfortably within the 20 minutes you are allotted. If time allows, at the end of each session there will be an open question period where the audience will have a chance to address all of the speakers from that session. As a result, speakers should plan to attend the entire session in which they are speaking.

Please remember to use inclusive language and images. People-first language is the standard for respectfully addressing people with chronic disease, rather than labeling them by their illness. Because of the importance of reducing bias associated with obesity, authors should not use “obese” as an adjective or noun to describe an individual person or group of people, but instead use terms such as “people with obesity”,  this also includes language and images that could be interpreted as stereotyping, biased or prejudiced. View our Image Bank for royalty-free images you can use in your presentations (any time, not just for the Summit!).
