Guidelines for presenting an accepted abstract

IMPORTANT: To ensure the proper execution of this onsite conference, please pay special attention to the instructions below. If you have any questions or difficulties following the guidelines, please contact the Weinstein 2024 Secretariat ([email protected]). They will be happy to help.

"My abstract was accepted. Now what?"

The conference will take place in Montréal, Québec, at the Bonaventure Hotel. All presenting authors are expected to register before April 10, 2024.

All onsite presentations (keynote, oral and poster presentations) will be presented live as scheduled in the online conference program. Speakers will be present for their entire session in order to answer questions and participate in any discussions.

Presentation guidelines for oral presentations


All Contributed Oral presentations will be 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions.

All Keynote Session Oral presentations will be 45 minutes total, including 5 minutes for questions.


We recommend that presentations be in a WIDESCREEN format as it is the optimized format, but other options will be accepted. To take full advantage of the widescreen format, we recommend that you build or convert your presentation to 16:9. We recommend using Microsoft Office PowerPoint for your presentation. 

It is possible, though not mandatory, to use Weinstein's presentation template to prepare your presentation.


All speakers are required to check in their presentation room to upload their presentation from your USB memory stick at least 15 minutes before the start of their session. A Speaker Test Desk will be available at the registration office if you want to test your presentation, and the staff will be available to answer your questions and help. 

Presentation guidelines for poster presentations


The Weinstein conference poster sessions will be held in the Exhibition Hall. 
Poster sessions provide an opportunity for informal, interactive presentations and discussions. 

Each presenting author will receive a schedule and a poster code by email. Each author will have access to 1 side of a poster board, and each will have a useable area measuring a maximum of 48" (122 cm) high and 36" (91 cm) wide. Poster materials should not extend outside the assigned area. A label indicating your poster number will be placed on the top of your board space. Technical equipment will be available for the mounting of posters. 


Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors as stated on the submitted abstract. Simple "Introduction" and "Conclusion" sections are helpful. When feasible, use graphs for depicting qualitative relationships and tables for precise numerical values.


Presenters are required to be at their posters during the scheduled session.

Presenters are responsible for the setting up and the removal of their posters according to the schedule:
Setup: May 15 between 12 pm and 3 pm.
Removal: May 17 from 9 am to 2 pm.

Posters not removed by that time will be discarded. The Weinstein Conference cannot accept liability for lost or damaged posters.
