Final programme of the Industry Symposia
The final programme should be uploaded by April 20, 2020, using the same online procedure as the second submission; the final titles, speakers and chairs need to be provided, using the online application.
Please note that at least 25% of the speakers should be women; it is highly advisable to include young speakers in the programme, furthermore, regarding nephrological topics, it is recommended to invite speakers who are ERA-EDTA members (category A & B).
The SC might reject submissions that do not comply with the above-mentioned principles.
A digital poster, that links to the virtual symposium live streaming and the webcast, will be also made available on the industry symposium section of the congress website.
The ERA-EDTA Industry Relations Team is aware that companies involved in the organisation of an Industry Symposium are unlikely to receive confirmations from the Speakers/Chairpersons in the early stages. For this reason, the ERA-EDTA Industry Relations Team will accept the fact that Speakers/Chairpersons in the preliminary draft may differ from those in the final programme. All the information contained in the programme drafts will be handled as strictly confidential. Although the ERA-EDTA Industry Relations Team understands that some speakers may have committed to participating in an Industry Symposium, please be aware that the policy does not permit a speaker to repeat lectures given during Industry Symposium.
Furthermore, there is a strict limitation of a maximum of one/1 talk and one/1 chair per person.
If the ERA-EDTA Industry Relations Team finds out that a Speaker/Chairperson has an overlap of two parallel symposia, it will promptly inform both companies in order to resolve the matter.
