If you wish to make an oral presentation at the meeting, you must indicate this at the time of registration. FDA requests that presentations focus on the recommendations identified in section II of the FR notice. You should also identify which recommendation you wish to address in your presentation. You must submit a brief statement that describes your experience and/or expertise relevant to your proposed presentation. In order to keep each open session focused on the recommendation at hand, each oral presentation should address only one discussion topic. FDA will do its best to accommodate requests to speak.
