Event Overview
Welcome message:

The Charing Cross Symposium (CX), first took place in 1978 at Charing Cross Hospital, Hammersmith, London and has by now become the longest running vascular and endovascular symposium in Europe and one of the largest in the world.

London (UK) has been the host city of CX ever since. Until 1998, the symposium was held at Charing Cross Hospital, and between 1999 and 2012 at Imperial College. In 2013, it moved to National Hall, Olympia, and in 2014 to Olympia Grand.

The first CX had 100 attendees. In 2015, the Charing Cross Symposium – Controversies Update had a record number of 4,367 participants, from 79 countries, making it a leading global event.

CX mission

The Charing Cross Symposium raises vascular and endovascular controversies so that a world-class faculty challenges the available evidence in order to reach a consensus after discussion with an expert audience. This forms a three-year cycle. Challenges will be discussed in 2016.

CX programme and format

All Charing Cross Symposia are distinguished by a unique and logical programme, which focuses on identifying evidence for optimal vascular disease management from head to toe, catering for all vascular specialists.

Debate and emphasis on interaction with an expert audience are key aspects of the CX’s style. Education, Innovation and Evidence are CX core values.

Short presentations and time keeping are key characteristics of the CX sessions; these enable the right time for comments and questions by the audience.

At the sessions, there is a chaiman who monitors time, encourages audience and speaker interaction and conducts the discussion; there is also a moderator who assists the chair with questions to and from the audience.

Who should attend CX?

• Vascular and endovascular surgeons

• Interventionalists

• Cardiovascular specialists

• Imaging diagnosticians

• Neurovascular interventional radiologists

• Stroke neurologists

• Vascular scientists and nurses

• Physicians in training

• Medical students

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info

CX will only accept presentations in PowerPoint (versions 2007/2010/2013/365).

Due to limited time between speakers, plugging and unplugging of personal computers at the lectern will not be allowed.

If your presentation is in PowerPoint Mac, we recommend you test it in advance, using the Windows configurations.

To avoid problems of compatibility between PCs and Mac, please use fonts common to both systems (Arial, Courier, Courier New, Geneva, Georgia, Helvetica, Times, Times New Roman).

If you have pictures, they must be in .jpg format.

If you have video files attached to your PowerPoint presentation, they must be in the following formats: mpg, mpeg, wmv or avi.

The format mov (quicktime) is NOT accepted. If you have such files, please export them in avi format.

Please bring your final presentation on a USB memory stick or DVD. Most video formats are acceptable, but please make sure that you have copied the original files from your own PC to your memory stick or DVD.

This year, we ask you to use a template for your slides. Please click here to download

It will be helpful if presentations can be e-mailed to Cathy Mowat – – no later than Tuesday, 14th April 2015.

In order to ensure compatibility of your material with our AV system, please bring a backup copy on the day on which you are speaking,

at least 2 hours in advance of your presentation, to the “Speaker Ready Room” which will be open from 7:00am each morning.

It will also be open on Monday, 27th April from 2:00pm to 6:00pm. It is situated below the Main Auditorium on the Ground Floor of Grand Hall at Olympia.

Guidance notes

Ensure you lay your slides out within the “safe area” of the screen. Do not place text and logo too close to the edge of the screen.

Place all your video clips in a separate folder before you “place & link” them in PowerPoint.

Place all your audio clips in a separate folder before you “place & link” them in PowerPoint.

Video clips play better from a DVD outside of PowerPoint. We can control them and switch seamlessly between your presentation and the videos as required.

Use PowerPoint’s facility to compress pictures for screen shows to keep file size down. This allows presentations to load and run quicker. (Save As – Tools – Compress Pictures).

If using special “fonts” either embed them (Save As – Tools – Save Options – Embed TrueType fonts) or supply them with your files in a “fonts” folder.

For safety, save your presentations in the native PPT format and the screen show PPS format.

If using 2007 ensure you save the file as a PPTX version and a PPT (2003-97) version allowing greater flexibility and compatibility with our equipment.
