Invited Speakers & Oral Abstract Presentations

IPSO scientific session speakers and oral abstract speakers will follow the live presentation guidelines for the IPSO 2024 Congress. We kindly ask that you share your presentation slides in advance of the Congress to ensure the meeting runs smoothly. All presentations must be pre-loaded to the meeting desktop in advance of your session. Speakers are welcome to test their presentations at any time the day before their scheduled session if/when the meeting room is available.

An email has been sent out with the maximum length of each presentation.

Please email with your presentation by Wednesday, March 20th, 2024. Presentations may be sent via email, Dropbox, OneDrive or another file transfer portal. If you do not share your presentation in advance of the Congress, you are required to arrive early on the day of your presentation and share your presentation via USB drive with the IPSO meeting staff.
