Please keep in mind that this might differ from the chosen “preferred presentation format”. The final presentation format is how your abstract is selected to be presented during the congress.

Oral presentation (RPS/CTiR)

Congratulations! Your abstract has been chosen either for an oral presentation in a Research Presentation (RPS) session or for the Clinical Trials in Radiology (CTiR) session! For a better understanding please refer to the two descriptions below. The following guide was created to assist you in preparing for this commitment and to answer possible questions that you may have.  

 



A Research Presentation session (RPS)
is a classic oral presentation of 5 minutes followed by a 2-minute discussion.

A Clinical Trials in Radiology (CTiR) is is an 8-minute oral presentation, followed by a 5-minute opinion presentation by a discussant.


 

How to prepare my presentation?

  • Please use Microsoft PowerPoint format 16:9 for your presentation. Keynote presentations are not allowed. You can find the ECR-PPT templates on our website (ECR 2024 templates TBA, ECR 2023 templates for reference); however, their use is optional.
  • Bear in mind that the content of a slide should not exceed 20 seconds. We suggest spending on average one minute per 2 slides during your presentation.
  • Make sure there are NO patient names on your slides.
  • Please avoid using commercial references.
  • The second slide of your presentation should include any conflict of interest that must be disclosed. If this does not apply to you, please add the sentence "I do not have any conflict of interest to disclose".

Will my abstract be proofread?
All the abstracts accepted for RPS and CTiR are proofread. We will notify you that your abstract has been proofread; please take a moment to check if the amendments are to your liking.

When and where will my presentation take place?
You can easily find the date and time of your presentation by accessing your ESR account and clicking on the "Abstracts" section. Once the ECR 2024 programme is published, you can also access the entire congress schedule, including your presentation on ESR Connect.

How to find out if my abstract received an award?
One abstract from each topic is chosen and awarded as the "Best Research Presentation Abstract" within its respective topic.
The awards will be announced before the Congress, and only the presenters of the awarded abstracts will receive an email. The awarded abstracts can be found here shortly before the congress.
The awarded participants will be invited to an award ceremony, and further details will be communicated via email.

Where can I find the confirmation of my presentation?
After the congress, you will be notified via email that your abstract's "Confirmation of Presentation" is available in your ESR account in the "Documents" section.

Which abstracts will be included in the Book of Abstracts?
The abstracts selected for oral presentations are included in the "Book of Abstracts", which will be published in autumn 2024.

Presenter Registration

Valid congress registration is mandatory to present your abstract or to have your poster shown during the congress and/or permanently published after the congress. A reduced registration fee of EUR 380,- is available for all presenting authors of accepted oral and poster abstracts who are ESR members in good standing by August 31, 2023. The presenting authors of accepted abstracts without ESR 2023 membership can still register for ECR 2024 for the Early Fee. Important information: This offer will only be available if registration is finalised by December 19, 2023, and only applies to the presenting author (not first or any other authors). If the presenting author cannot register for the congress, they have the option to make an attending co-author or colleague the presenting author so that this person can present their work at the congress. Each abstract receives one reduced registration ticket for the presenting author. Once the reduced registration payment is completed, the ticket is not transferrable. If the presenter change occurs before the reduced registration payment is completed, the reduced registration fee benefit is transferred to the new presenting author. Please make sure to use the account with the same Personal ID for registration that was used to submit the abstract(s).
