Use of social media at ICE/ECE 2012

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 International Congress of Endocrinology and European Congress of Endocrinology welcome 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. 


  • If you plan to blog from ICE/ECE 2012, we respectfully ask you to inform us of this prior to the conference taking place.  Please contact jennie.evans@bioscientifica.com
  • We ask that all writers attending ICE/ECE 2012 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 ICE/ECE 2012, we ask that you use the hashtag #iceece12 to allow interested parties to follow the feed of tweets about this meeting.

If you have any queries, please contact jennie.evans@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.
