JHS(E) Abstract Supplement

FESSH 2018 Congress

Working for the Future


13-16 June 2018
Copenhagen, Denmark



 

Welcome to the XXIII FESSH Congress ...
Welcome to Copenhagen!

The Organizing Committee in Copenhagen and the International Scientific Committee of the XXIII FESSH Congress had four important goals: A high standard of scientific content; an optimized E-poster presentation; the inclusion of some more unusual topics and, a focus on the younger generation of hand surgeons. We hope that we have succeeded.

A high number of invited lecturers – several coming from other parts of the world and working in other medical specialties - have unselfishly accepted to honour the Congress with their presence and presentations, despite the extremely limited financial support that we could offer.

The number of abstracts submitted was higher than ever. Regretfully, although we opened one more lecture room than planned, we were forced to limit the number of free oral presentations.

The “good old days” when we could stroll around, peacefully browsing the posters are gone; we have to adapt to a digitalized world. We have optimized the E-poster utility through careful selection and categorization with an increased number of reading stations and availability online.

There is a special session for young hand surgeons entitled “Hand Surgery at the Frontier”, as well as a session of free papers “from young hand surgeons to young hand surgeons”.

The topic for the Instructional Course is “Fractures of the Hand and Carpus”. When selecting this topic, although we were primarily thinking of our younger colleagues, we believe that senior experts will benefit from it. The course book was realized in a perfect collaboration with our publishers Thieme and with the generous contributions of many prominent experts.

Of course, all these achievements would have been impossible without the support and contributions of the medical industry.

And so, thank you to the submitters, lecturers, supporters and participants…

We hope that you will enjoy your stay in the wonderful city of Copenhagen and, when you leave, that you will feel enriched in your knowledge and passion of our fantastic medical subspecialty.

Copenhagen welcomes you!


Michel Boeckstyns
president of the congress

Information for speakers

Timing
In FESSH free paper sessions presentation time is 5 minutes + 2 minutes discussion. General discussion will be held in one block at the end of the section. Presentation time in other sessions is as discussed with the session organizer. Presentation time counter will be displayed during presentations. Please keep the assigned presentation time as there is a tight program schedule.

Projection format
16:9 (panoramic) projection will be used in the lecture halls. Please prepare your slides for 16:9 screen format.

Slides
Please prepare your presentation in MS PowerPoint format (any version is acceptable). All presentations should be uploaded to a server on-site in the slide center. A laptop will be provided at each presentation hall that should be used for presentation. Using your own computer is not allowed.

If your presentation contains videos, make sure to embed them in the presentation file or upload them also during slide check. Slides must be clear and easy to read from a distance - charts with detailed data are to be avoided.

Slide center
A fully equipped working area will be at the speakers’ disposal during the whole Congress. Please report to this room to upload your presentation not later than 2 hours before your talk. All the presentations will be uploaded by an AV staff member. The file is copied on the main server, on the backup server and immediately in the right room.
