AV Guidelines for E-Poster Presentations

CME Accreditation Policies

Abstract presentations will be CME accredited, and it is therefore essential that they be free from commercial influence. References to particular commercial products must use their generic name or be balanced by referring to other similar products.


Please note that an additional slide including all authors' financial disclosures will be shown on the screen opposite of the presenter during the presentation. If speakers have any corrections to make to their disclosure statement, please send them to by May 1, 2019.

Product Name Use Policy

SRS strongly prefers that pharmaceuticals and proprietary software/databases as well as surgical approaches or specific instrumentation such as “Surgimap, MIMICS, EOS Imaging, ROTEM, Isola, TSRH, CD, XLIF, DLIF, AxiaLIF, Solera, Vertex, Expedium, Mountaineer, Shilla, VEPTR etc.,” are not used in presentations. These terms should be replaced by a generic term or description of the drug, software/database and/or instrumentation or technique unless the use of the term directly impacts learners’ understanding of the presentation or data. Instrumentation may also be referred to when the device name is a landmark system that is no longer sold (i.e. Harrington, Cotrel-Dubousset, Luque).

Company names and logos must never be used in a presentation (including in images.)

It is recognized that studies evaluating a device or devices or comparing different devices or techniques may require the use of product or technique names. If a device trade name or industry developed technique using a trademarked name are used in an abstract or presentation, it will be specifically reviewed by the CME Committee for evaluation of any potential conflict of interest.When there is a known potential conflict of interest, an expanded verbal disclosure will be necessary at the time of presentation. Furthermore, if a product name is mentioned, the audience should be informed of why it is necessary to give the name.

Please notify us at if you plan to use a product name in your presentation.

Invitation and Confirmation

All E-Poster presenters must confirm their participation by accepting their invitation(s) in the Dekon Speaker Management site by May 1, 2019.
