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.
