Symposium Guidelines

Set-up Onsite:

A laptop will be provided for your symposium. It is mandatory that all speakers upload their presentation to this laptop in advance of their talk, as this creates a smoother transition from speaker to speaker and wastes less time in-between talks. To ensure that there aren’t any unforeseen formatting issues, speakers are required to report to their designated breakout at the following times to set up with our AV technician. You are welcome to upload and test your presentation at any time the day before your session if/when your meeting room is free:

Social Media Policy

The use of social media on conferences is on the rise, and this may create some opportunities, but may also be considered by some as a threat. We propose to emphasize the opportunities; increased exposure, openness, and inclusiveness, while also providing opportunity to those that see social media exposure as a threat with some ways to prevent unwanted exposure.

ISPGR encourages communication between members and the use of social media. Please note the following guidelines:

  • Members are encouraged to explicitly indicate their wishes
  • ISPGR provides icons for permission and prohibition of photo recording, video recording and sharing in social media. These icons are available online (please click on the icons to the right to download) and as stickers onsite at the conference
  • Respect presenters’ wishes if they indicate the information presented is not to be captured or shared
  • If there’s no explicit indication of intention, please ask presenters their wishes and take into consideration the possibility that presenters do not want their presentation to be recorded or shared
