Photography and recording policy

Presenters and exhibitors should display the appropriate icon as to whether or not photography/recording of the poster, presentation, or exhibit booth and sharing/remixing of the material is permitted by participants. To aid in this process, the ASBMB provides presenters with a digital graphic to incorporate into their slides/poster or to print and display:

Camera with an X

This icon indicates that photography, recording, sharing, remixing and/or any derivative of work material are prohibited. All rights are reserved.

CCBY-NC-SA icon/Camera with a checkmark

Photography/recording of the material is permitted by participants. Sharing and remixing are permitted with appropriate attribution as stated in CCBY-NC-SA 4.0 International, subject to commercial patents and trademarks when applicable.

In the absence of a visible image/sign, photography, video and audio recording, and all other forms of recording of a presentation, poster, or exhibit booth are prohibited. This includes posting images from presentations or posters on social media without the express consent of the authors.

Presenters are expected to obtain permission from all co-authors before choosing the level of capturing and sharing allowed of the work described in the presentation. If all co-authors do not agree, the presentation must be marked as the Camera with an X. Displaying the CCBY icon will indicate that permissions have been obtained from all authors.

Attendee photography and recording of presentations and exhibits should not be disruptive. Flash photography is not permitted. Devices should be handheld. Large cameras and other equipment such as tripods, monopods, etc. are prohibited in session rooms and the exhibit hall.

All attendees will honor the request of the individual as a matter of scientific and professional courtesy. While staff may not police or actively enforce noncompliance, the ASBMB will refer reports of violations by an attendee to the ASBMB Ombudsman for review and handling.

Photography and recording will be permitted by ASBMB official staff. This waiver is included in the author agreement at the time of abstract submission and conference registration. The ASBMB reserves the right to live stream or record any presentation for later viewing by meeting attendees or ASBMB members and to publish photographs online or in printed material for marketing purposes at its sole discretion.
