Per­for­mance coach­ing and short pre­sen­ta­tion:
It is the desire of gyné­colo­gie suisse man­ag­ing board and the sci­en­tif­ic advi­so­ry board that the free com­mu­ni­ca­tions, posters and videos are pre­dom­i­nate­ly reserved for young researchers. In order to pro­mote young tal­ent, we want to pro­vide young researchers with the oppor­tu­ni­ty to present them­selves and their work and to receive acclaim for out­stand­ing abstracts and pre­sen­ta­tions.
Abstracts that are of inter­est can be select­ed by the jury for a short pre­sen­ta­tion. For the main top­ics, we link these short pre­sen­ta­tions with a vis­it from a per­for­mance coach­ing. That coach­ing should help our young speak­ers to give their short pre­sen­ta­tions in an inter­est­ing and con­cise man­ner and should also help to build a sol­id foun­da­tion for future lec­tur­ing activ­i­ties.
These pre­sen­ta­tions are under­stood to be addi­tion­al to those giv­en dur­ing the ses­sion for posters, free com­mu­ni­ca­tions or videos.
Dur­ing a per­for­mance coach­ing, which will take place on 6 June 2019 in Zurich, the pre­sen­ters of the select­ed abstracts will receive a pro­fes­sion­al train­ing. Short pre­sen­ta­tions will only be approved if their pre­sen­ters have par­tic­i­pat­ed in per­for­mance coach­ing. The pre­sen­ters of the abstracts that have been select­ed will be informed by con­gress organ­i­sa­tion at the end of April 2019.

Should you have any ques­tions or require clar­i­fi­ca­tion, please con­tact the con­gress organ­i­sa­tion.
