Social Media Policy

CERF permits and encourages the use of social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and blogging as a way to summarize, highlight, excerpt, review, critique, and/or promote presentations, exhibit materials, and the conference in general, provided that the material is not shared in full, and the author or speaker is referenced and cited appropriately in each case.

We Encourage You To:

  • Stay connected and check out our Facebook and Twitter pages;
  • Blog, post, and tweet highlights of and comments on the conference;
  • Suggest sessions and workshops to attend and events to enjoy; discuss favorite speakers and posters; chat about products and services in the Exhibit Hall; post job openings and opportunities;
  • Request the permission of speakers if you would like to take their photograph before or after a session; and
  • Provide polite, constructive feedback to conference organizers (perhaps discuss topics and/or speakers of interest for the next CERF conference, make suggestions for sessions, or comment on the format.)

Please Refrain From:

  • Using photo, audio, and/or video recording devices to capture, transmit, or redistribute the bulk of the material presented in a session or presentation. Doing so infringes on the intellectual property rights of the speakers.
  • Blogging, posting, and/or tweeting about the content of a plenary lecture, scientific session, workshop, etc. when the organizer or speaker has explicitly requested that some or all of the information presented is not to be captured or shared.
