Abstract Submission FAQs

Q. How do I create an account within the abstract system?
A. If you are logging in the abstract submission site for the first time to submit an abstract, choose "Create an Account" from the menu bar. You will create a User ID and Password for direct log in on future visits to the site. If you have previously been in the system related to an abstract submission please use your existing User ID and Password. When creating your account, be sure to complete all of the steps. You will have access to the submission roles for CORE, GRIT and Research Topics in GI Disease.

Q. How much time should I allow for the abstract submission process?
A. Provided you have all of your required information available, and no technical difficulties arise, the submission process should take less than an hour to complete. However, it is recommended that you do not wait until the last day (October 15) to prepare your submission in case you run into difficulties - technical support may or may not be available at that time.

Q. May I make revisions to my abstract after submission?

Plan Your Presentation

The Implementation Committee would like to thank all co-chairs and speakers for their role in making CDDW™ such a success. Below are some instructions to assist faculty.

All presentations must:

  • be prepared in PowerPoint, widescreen 16:9;
  • begin with a slide disclosing any actual/apparent/potential conflict of interest, or a statement indicating that no relevant financial relationships exist;
  • disclose any discussion of investigative use or off-label application of medicines, medical devices, or procedures;
  • ensure the description of therapeutic options utilize generic names or both generic and trade names
  • identify any slides you did not prepare yourself, and
  • identify which CanMEDS roles will be covered in the talk (for clinical talks, a requirement of the Royal College)

 

Presentation Slide Template

slide example

You may wish to use a CDDW™ 2018 Microsoft PowerPoint presentation template. This template includes the CanMEDS Roles slide and disclosure slides for you to complete. Please note that you are to choose ONE of the two disclosure slides, not both.

Presentation Deadline

Final PowerPoint slides are requested by (deadline TBD) for vetting of conflict of interest and for session co-chairs to review talks for potential overlap. Slides should be directed as follows:

  • SYMPOSIUM & WORKSHOP SPEAKERS should email their slides to their session co-chairs for vetting
  • BREAKFAST & SMALL GROUP SPEAKERS should email their slides to Lesley Marshall (CAG National Office) for vetting by Education Affairs
  • Co-chairs who are also presenting within their session should send their slides to their co-chair for vetting
  • For sessions co-developed with industry partners please send slides to Joanne Ardron (CAG National Office)

Presentation Loading

Speakers are responsible for bringing and loading in advance their presentations for the conference. Embedded video or audio files should be included as separate files.

  • For all sessions held in the main plenary rooms speakers should present themselves at the Slide Preview Room at least four (4) hours before their presentation to have their final slides loaded. If your session is early in the morning please load your slides the day before. Slide loading is NOT allowed in the main plenary rooms.
  • For Breakfasts and Small Groups, slides may be loaded in the room for the session ½ hour prior.
All session rooms will be equipped with A/V - laptop, projector and screen. Speakers are reminded to keep to their allotted time to allow for subsequent speakers and questions, and to ensure that the session ends on schedule.
