Use of social media at ECE 2013

With the advent of social networking, an increasing number of delegates at scientific conferences are using blogs, Twitter, Facebook and other forms of social media to share interesting information discussed at the conference and to promote networking amongst delegates. 

The 15th European Congress of Endocrinology welcomes the use of social media at the meeting.   To ensure that the needs of all parties are met, we ask that delegates using social media comply with the following policy. 

Policy

  • If you plan to blog from ECE 2013, we respectfully ask you to inform us of this prior to the conference taking place.  Please contact toby.stead@bioscientifica.com
  • We ask that all writers attending ECE 2013 gain approval from a speaker/poster presenter prior to quoting or publishing that individual’s scientific results on the internet or through other forms of media.  This policy applies to both professional writers/journalists and to non-journalists blogging about the conference or otherwise sharing information among a group of individuals.
  • Please refrain from taking photos of any session/poster without prior consent of the conference organisers.
  • All speakers/poster presenters will be made aware of this policy and will have the right to ask delegates not to disseminate their research via the internet or through other forms of media.  If a speaker/presenter makes this request, delegates are asked to respect their wishes not to discuss the relevant work in this way. 

If tweeting about ECE 2013, we ask that you use the hashtag #ece13 to allow interested parties to follow the feed of tweets about this meeting.

If you have any queries, please contact toby.stead@bioscientifica.com

Please note that photographs taken at this event may be used for promotional purposes by the organisers, for example inclusion on the web and/or marketing materials.  If you have any concerns or queries about this issue, please visit the registration desk or contact the Congress Secretariat.
