Distribution of Credits
Onsite Session attendance will be tracked via a barcode on each participant's badge which will track his/her attendance in the meeting rooms. Please note
each participant is responsible to ensure his/her barcode is properly scanned when entering the meeting room before the beginning of each session.
Please read the detailed programme carefully to learn when each session starts. Some sessions follow without a break immediately after the previous one finishes. Yet
the barcode needs to be re-scanned at the beginning of each Parallel or Plenary Session even though no break is scheduled in the programme. Please make sure you have your badge properly scanned at the door control.
Virtual Session attendance will be tracked within the Virtual platform.
The CME Certificate will be distributed electronically after the Congress to all participants who fill and submit online Congress Evaluation Form within one week after the Congress. The Evaluation Form will be available in the online congress portal, on the website and in the Virtual Platform. Participant who does not present the Congress Evaluation Form cannot be entitled to receive the CME Certificate.
A minimum attendance of
30 minutes per session is required. Parallel sessions with the same start time are not cumulative.
CME credits can be gained during the physical attendance, by watching the live-streamed sessions, and by watching the on-demand sessions.
