Presentation Preparation

In June, you will receive instructions on how to upload our slide presentation online in advance of the meeting from our A/V Company.

You must upload or review your presentation at the Speaker Ready Room at least 4 hours before the start of your presentation or the day before for an early morning presentation. Please take note of the following:

  • Your presentation must be formatted in a 16:9 format, NOT 4:3. Presenting in 4:3 format may cause your presentation to be distorted.

  • You can upload your presentation in the Speaker Ready room using a USB

  • Personal laptops cannot be used for presentations

  • Comparison slides cannot be accommodated

Presentation Format
You may upload your presentation in any version of Microsoft PowerPoint. Please remember presentations must be formatted in 16:9 format. You can download an ISTH 2023 slide template here. The ISTH 2023 slide template is optional, however, you are required to have a disclosure slide and learning objectives slide at the beginning of your slide deck.


REQUIRED: Review these tips as you prepare for your presentation:
Presentation Content
The ISTH must ensure that all content is free of commercial bias and influence. Please note the following presentation standards and ensure that your presentation is in compliance:

  • Educational materials, such as slides, abstracts and handouts cannot contain any advertising, trade name, product-group message or company logo.

  • When discussing therapeutic options, please only use generic names. If it is necessary to use a trade name, then those of several companies must be used.

  • Should your presentation include discussion of any unlabeled or investigational use of a commercial product, you are required to disclose this at the time of presentation.

Disclosure and Learning Objectives Requirements
All speakers will be required to provide a listing of their disclosures, per accreditation requirements, following their title slide. Your disclosure slide will be shown for 10 seconds prior to the beginning of your talk.


Additionally, you will be required to list learning objectives immediately following your disclosure slide, per accreditation requirements. Additional information available here:
Audio Visual Equipment
The following audio visual equipment will be provided in each session room:

  • Data projector

  • Projection screen

  • Lectern, table, and microphone

  • Laser pointer

Embargo Policy
All abstracts are governed by International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis Embargo Policy. The ISTH Embargo Policy states: The information contained in the abstracts is embargoed until the abstracts are available online. Coverage of information that goes beyond that which is contained in the four corners of the abstract (e.g., additional analysis, commentary, or updated information from those individuals and companies involved in the study) is embargoed according to the following criteria:

  • For oral presentations: the embargo time is the start time of the session in which the presentation is being made.

  • For poster presentations: the embargo lifts when the poster session containing the poster opens for viewing in the morning (i.e., when the poster hall opens that day). 

Abstract Availability
Embargoed text of abstracts will be made available on June 9 at 09:00 AM U.S. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), on the official online program. Prior to this, only abstract titles will be available online in May 2023.
Full text of Late Breaking Oral abstracts will be released on the day that they are presented.
