The Italian Society of Rheumatology (SIR) will provide 15 grants to participants selected for oral or poster presentations which have reached a high score and found to be particularly meritorious by the Referees.
Only the presenter of a selected abstract will be eligible for the grant and he/she should be a SIR member, younger than 40 years old and in good standing with the membership fees (2020 included).
The grant of € 1000,00 gross will be recognized directly by SIR to the authors of selected abstracts after the congress. The winners are bound to join the conference and pay the registration fee.
The winners will be contacted by the Organizing Secretariat at the end of January in order to give them all the instructions.
An application has been made to the EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event.
Oral presentations are limited to 7 minutes followed by 3 minutes of discussion and will be allocated in the plenary sessions.
Participants presenting in oral sessions are requested to submit their presentations to the slide centre at least 1 hour before the start of their session.
All posters will be on display for the duration of the Congress from 26 to 28 August. Each Poster has been given a number and should be fixed to the board marked with the same number. Presenters must therefore be available at their poster board during lunch time on August 27, in order to discuss their poster with interested viewers and reply to any question received. Each poster session will be guided by a chairperson.
The best posters presented by authors under 40 will receive a prize during the Closing Ceremony. The selection will be done by the Chairs during the poster discussions.
