Recording by photo, film, or other means
ESWW 2023 follows the guideline for consent related to pictures of a person in a public space under the EU General Data Protection Regulations. Recording via video, photograph, or other means of participants to the ESWW 2023 is, in general, allowed as long as people are not shown in incriminatory or private situations and images are not used in a misleading or derogatory way. It is recommended that permission be sought from anyone that is identifiable on a recording.
ESWW 2023 encourages open discussion on social media, blogging platforms and channel-based messaging platforms during the conference.
The following rules aim to provide means by which ESWW 2023 participants can embrace social media while at the same time remaining respectful of presenting authors’ work.
- It is prohibited to share any presenter’s material at the conference if it has been labelled with the “no sharing” icon.
- The default assumption is to allow open discussion of ESWW 2023 oral and poster presentations on social media. However, please respect any request from authors to not disseminate the contents of their presentation if it has been marked with the “no sharing” icon.
All participants are expected to aspire and adhere to the following standards of behavior:
- Integrity: participants will act with honesty and take full responsibility for the trustworthiness of their presentations
- Honest reporting of data, results, methods and procedures.
- No fabrication, falsification, plagiarism, or misrepresentation of data
- Personal accountability in the conduct of their activity and the dissemination of the results
- Unselfish cooperation
