Congress Policies

ALL ATTENDEES MUST RESPECT THESE POLICIES AS PART OF THE CONTRACTUAL COMMITMENT THAT THEY MADE AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION. FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN REMOVAL / DENIED ACCESS TO THE CONGRESS.

Congress Public Safety and Security

For security reasons, all delegates will be issued a badge onsite that is required to be worn at all times during the Congress and at any organized functions. Badge swapping is strictly prohibited. All individuals entering the venue may be subject to a visual and possibly a physical body search; packages and baggage may also be searched or screened before entering the venue, and at any time during the event. All physical body searches will be done professionally, in privacy, in a courteous manner, and respectful of gender.

Recording of Presentations is Strictly Prohibited

No individual or entity - including a presenting author - may electronically record or broadcast any portion of the TTS 2018 (including their own presentation) without prior written consent of TTS 2018. Please see the staff at the Congress Registration desk. Unauthorized recording (audio, video, still photography, etc.) of presentations during sessions, posters, workshops, tutorials, etc., without the express written consent of TTS 2018 and individual authors is strictly prohibited. TTS 2018 reserves the rights to any approved audio and video production of presentations. Press representatives must receive a Press Pass which implies photo/recording permission from TTS 2018.

Photo Policy

Photographing formal presentations, posters, or displays without permission of the presenter is forbidden.

Policy on Respectful Dialogue

Participants are expected to keep criticism constructive, and avoid personal attacks in sessions, in online discussion boards and in social media. Debate of ideas is encouraged, allowing delegates to enjoy a lively and stimulating congress.

Policy on Social Media Use and Congress Web App

We encourage the use of social media (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) and the congress web app. Please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Whenever possible, use the hashtag #tts2018 to discuss the congress.
  • Communicate with respect and consideration for others, keeping criticism constructive.
  • Blog, post or tweet about what you are hearing and learning, but refrain from sharing information when the speaker explicitly requests this. Talks are tweetable and shareable by default, but speakers can request that specific details or slides not be shared.
  • Provide feedback to the congress committees, we encourage participants to post and discuss topics of interest as well as ideas for future meetings.
  • Do not engage in rudeness or personal attacks.
