Presentation type: Oral presentation
Language: Your presentation and PowerPoint slides must be in English. No translation services are provided in the parallel sessions.
Livestream: Since the Congress will be in a hybrid format, all sessions will be live-streamed to virtual participants.


Contents and format:

  • Your presentation must cover the material cited in the abstract.
  • All presentations must be created using Microsoft PowerPoint. PowerPoint slides are required to be in 16:9 (widescreen) format in order for them to be displayed on the screen properly.
  • If a short video is embedded in a slide it should not be over 2 minutes. It must be submitted before the congress so that the AV team can test them before your presentation. Please embed your video in your presentation slides. 
  • Co-authors will not be listed in the program and Congress collaterals due to limited space. Presenting authors should acknowledge co-authors within their presentations.

Template: We highly encourage you to use the World Hospital Congress PPT template. You can download it below.

Slides after the event: Presentation slides will be made available online on the IHF website and event platform (in PDF format) after the event.
