By your online submission it is understood that the Society holds copyright on all abstracts printed in the preliminary and final programmes and the material presented at the conference and that you permit the Society to copy & reproduce the material in any form for distribution & sale if felt necessary.

PERMISSION TO RECORD

The Society will record presentations and discussions at the Annual Meeting. By your submission it is understood that you give the Society permission to record your presentation. Videos may be copied in toto and become the property of the APOS and may be made available for purchase.

ACADEMIC PIRACY

The concerned defaulter will be suspended for 3 years and again if piracy is reported for a second time he or she will be suspended for 10 years. Apart from this the name of the defaulter will also be published in the circular of the general secretary, APOS website and abstract book

ABSENCE WITHOUT INTIMATION

After accepting to be a Chairman, Cochairman, Convenor, Moderator, Judge or speaker in a particular session absenting yourself without valid reason and intimation to the scientific committee will be viewed most seriously. This causes the greatest disruption & dissatisfaction among the delegates. So please do not commit yourself to any involvement unless you are certain to adhere to it.

PRESENCE AT SESSIONS FOR THE COMPLETE DURATION

It is often noticed that the faculty tend to walk away in the middle of the session once their presentation is over. This may be because of commitments in some other session. We do our best to avoid involvement of the same person in more than one place at the same time, though this may not be entirely possible considering the number of sessions & delegates involved. However every speaker & faculty member is expected to be present throughout the duration of their session for any interaction with the audience. If there is any unavoidable commitment they are expected to leave only with the permission of the Chairperson of that session.

MOBILE PHONES

Please switch-off your mobile phone when you are entering any halls or attending a session. Kindly keep your mobile in silent mode once you enter the Conference venue.
