CONFERENCE ADMISSIONS POLICY

Only name badge-carrying pre-registered conference delegates and delegates who register on-site will be able to attend the oral and poster conference sessions and take part in the coffee breaks and in the conference dinner.

All participants are asked to wear their badges at all times throughout the conference.

Badge holders must not allow their badges to be worn by anyone else. Any failure is likely to lead to the badge holder and the person wearing the badge being removed from conference.

Anyone obtaining a conference delegate badge by theft, deception or other illegal means will be asked to leave conference.

Anyone attending the conference must not take part in any demonstrations, objectionable behavior or wear offensive apparel or be involved in any activity which may disrupt conference.

The Organizers reserve the right to exclude or remove anyone from the conference and venue who does not comply with this policy or who they reasonably consider is likely to break these rules or who is prohibited from attending under any applicable sanctions, laws or regulations.

Press badges at conference are restricted to publishers, editors, journalists, photographers, broadcasters and web bloggers associated with the conference subject area. Members of the press may be required to complete an application form and produce accreditation in the form of a photocopy of a recognized press or media card, business card, a letter from the editor or an official web address linking to a press release in order to verify their position. Press applications from advertising personnel and media sales representatives will not be accepted.

Members of the conference organizing team may be taking photographs and filming videos at the conference. Anyone attending the conference consents to such photography and filming without compensation and confirms that the Organizers shall be entitled to use such photographs and videos, which may include photographs and videos of visitors, for the purpose of marketing conference in future, for exploitation in any and all media, without liability. No other photography or filming will be permitted during the POC-16 conference, without the prior written approval of the Organizers. All photos or videos taken during the POC-16 conference will be uploaded to the conference web site. Password-based access will be granted to all conference attendees to freely view and download these at their will.
