Your Brand Ambassador should be able to advise you on whom to ask.

At least, the presenting author must be registered at the conference.
The intention of EDTNA/ERCA is to present original work during the conference. Previously presented or published abstracts cannot therefore be accepted.
• Disclosure of Interest
The intention of EDTNA/ERCA is to provide high-quality sessions focused on educational content that is free from commercial influence or bias. We request all presenters to co-operate with this by:
• Declaring any potential conflict of interest on a Disclosure section of the abstract submission.
• Not including company or product names within the abstract. In the presentation the logo of the organization could be shown, but commercial products cannot be promoted
