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 pre­do­mi­nant­ly 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 coach. 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 per­for­mance coa­ching, which will take place on Thurs­day 19 May 2022 in Zurich, the pre­sen­ters of the selec­ted abs­tracts will recei­ve 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 2022.

Should you have any ques­ti­ons or requi­re cla­ri­fi­ca­ti­on, plea­se con­ta­ct the Con­gress Organisation.
