EASDec 2018 28th Annual Meeting - Belfast, Northern Ireland

European Association for the Study of Diabetes Eye Complications Study Group 28th Annual Meeting 2018: Belfast, Northern Ireland.


We are so looking forward to welcoming you to the 28th Annual Meeting of EASDec in Belfast this year.
In order to help with your planning I would like to outline a number of guidance points for both presenters, posters presenters and delegates.
  • Moderators have been asked to introduce each free paper session setting out themes and key contexts, without giving highlights of the presentations
  • Times given for presentations in each free paper session vary, please ensure you check the timings carefully
  • Please allow a minimum of  2 minutes for questions at the end of your presentation
  • Please avoid general statements on well known facts
  • PowerPoint formats should be 16:9
  • Please forward a copy of your presentation to me as soon as possible
  • Posters can be put up on Friday morning
  • Moderators will be discussing findings, it is therefore unnecessary to develop a PowerPoint presentation
