Social Media and Photograph Policy

Social media offers the opportunity for attendees of the AAAR conference to engage and communicate with the broader scientific community, as well as the general public, about exciting research presented in the meeting (plenary talks, platform presentations, and poster sessions). At the same time, some presenters may prefer that their research — which may be preliminary, in progress, or under review — not be disseminated beyond the conference. This was the rational for AAAR's previous "no photography" policy, and remains an important consideration with sharing others' results. However, in many cases presenters may be happy to have their presentations photographed and/or shared on social media. In order to balance these various considerations, the AAAR policy on social media posting and photography is as follows:

photo OK

Attendees may photograph and post content from others' presentations only when they have explicit permission by the presenter to do so. This permission will be given by an "ok to photography/post" icon on the presenter's slides or poster. Video/audio recording (as well as live-streaming, etc.) is expressly prohibited.

It is assumed that the primary platform for such social media posts will be Twitter; tweets related to the conference should use the hashtag #AAAR19. Inappropriate content — e.g., material that may be viewed as libelous, defamatory, obscene, threatening, or abusive — is prohibited.
