To enhance the exchange of information and communication among attendees of IHV2018, the following must be adhered to by all participants:

  • All comments at sessions are off-the-record and not for attribution.
  • No coverage, reporting or publication of scientific data or presentations at IHV2018 is permitted without the written consent of the presenter(s) and Nora Samaranayake (info below). This rule applies to all forms of media, including blogging, tweeting, etc.
