Guidelines & Instructions

A platform to record and upload your presentation will be available from 16 August until 26 September, an individual link will be sent along with the guidelines.

If you are the submission manager, and not the presenting author, please note that further technical communications for uploading and connecting will only be sent to the speaker.

Please be aware that all presenting authors must register for the congress; the registration fee will not be waived.

Your abstract will be published online in the supplementary issue of the ESICM official journal Intensive Care Medicine Experimental, which will be available just before the Congress through our website.


Best Oral Presentations (live Q&A session will be run*)

This would take the form of a 3-minute pre-recorded presentation of your research, followed by a 3 minute live discussion between you as speaker and a moderator. You will be asked to be connected 30 minutes before the beginning of the session. All relevant technical information will be sent in advance of the congress.

Please click here for the PowerPoint template. Keep the number of slides to a minimum - we would suggest no more than three. We recommend that you:

• start with your conclusion slide
• support your conclusions with the most relevant data
• end with a take home message

*There will be audience questions via a chat facility with questions selected by the moderator.


Oral Presentations (no live presentation & no live Q&A session will be run*)

Your 3-minute pre-recorded presentation should take the form of an audio recording accompanied by one single slide. This programme includes a zoom-in facility which allows the viewer to select the different features of the slide and hear the accompanying audio.

Please click here for the PowerPoint templates (chose one from the two available).

*There will be no live presentation and no live Q&A discussion for your abstract. However, we do ask you to be available throughout the congress to answer potential audience questions that you will receive via a chat facility.
