Oral Presentations as Free Paper

Abstracts accepted as Free Papers will be presented orally within scientific sessions embedded in the core Congress programme. Very high scientific quality is expected from these presentations which should correspond to complete studies with outstanding results and innovative conclusions. To ensure that sessions run smoothly, please refer to the Free Paper Presentation Guidelines available online.

The best-rated Free Papers under both Orthopaedics and Trauma main categories will be selected to compete in the Free Paper Award competition and will receive specific guidelines.

Oral Presentations as Clinical Report

Clinical Reports will be presented orally during the Congress, in a few dedicated Clinical Reports sessions. They should refer to ONE SINGLE clinical case presenting scientific value for the use of a specific treatment or technique.

To ensure that sessions run smoothly, please refer to the Clinical Report Presentation Guidelines.

Poster Presentations

All abstracts accepted as Posters will be presented at the Congress as print wall paper posters. Authors are welcome to add images, tables and detailed data to better document their work. A large display area will be dedicated to poster presentations and Poster Walks will be organised during the Congress to have posters evaluated by experts in the corresponding fields. To ensure that posters are under the correct format for display, please refer to the Poster Presentation Guidelines available online.

Best-rated Posters will compete for the Jacques Duparc Award and will receive specific guidelines.
