Conference embargo policy
By submitting an abstract to AIDS 2020, you agree to adhere to the conference embargo policy. The policy specifies that while authors may publish the fact that their abstract has been selected for inclusion in the conference programme, data from the abstract may NOT be shared in any form (print, broadcast or online publication, media release or conference presentation) prior to its official presentation at AIDS 2020.
As is the case with most scientific and medical conferences, abstracts from AIDS 2020 are released to delegates and media under a strict embargo policy. A detailed breakdown of the embargo policies for different types of abstracts is available below. All conference delegates, presenters and media agree to respect this policy.
- Oral abstracts
Information about oral abstracts may not be published or presented before the start of the session in which the abstract is presented. If an abstract is included in an official AIDS 2020 press conference or media roundtable, the embargo on that abstract lifts at the start of the official press conference or media roundtable in which the abstract is featured or at the start of the scientific session in which the abstract is presented – whichever is earlier.
- Oral poster discussion abstracts and poster exhibition abstracts
Information about the oral poster discussion and poster exhibition abstracts may not be published or presented before 10:00 PT (Pacific Time) on Tuesday, 7 July 2020. If a poster presentation is part of an official AIDS 2020 press conference or media roundtable that occurs before that time, the embargo on that abstract lifts at the start of the official press conference or media roundtable.
Please direct any questions or concerns about the conference media embargo policy to the AIDS 2020 Communications team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
