Embargo policy for the 87th EAS congress

Results and information related to a session at the EAS Congress, cannot be presented or announced prior to presentation in the session or press conference, whichever comes first, unless otherwise instructed.

Any press and media representatives intending to attend the EAS Congress must accept this embargo policy or will not be provided with a press badge.

Breaking of the embargo policy by a reporter leads to:

  • Immediate suspension of the reporter’s media credentials
  • Immediate barring of the reporter from the meeting premises
  • Removal of reporter’s name from the EAS Press distribution list for 1 year

Media outlets that employ the reporter or who hired the freelancer to write for them will be barred from accessing next year’s EAS Congress.

Breaking of an embargo by another (non-media) party will equally be pursued.

Industry officials and their communication agents are not eligible for press registration.
