Rules of conduct

I. General

  • Authors are asked during the abstract submission process whether or not they agree to their oral presentation being recorded; in case they agree, they accept that the meeting organizers will provide a link to a video of their presentation to all registered participants.
  • Participants taking part actively in discussions during oral sessions will also be included in the recorded videos which are provided to all registered participants; if participants do not agree to being recorded, they have to clearly state this when starting to speak; in this case, their appearance in the video will be cut out by the meeting organizers.
  • Online Participants: Participants have to use their correct full name (given name, surname) and affiliation when logging in to the oral session via Zoom; nicknames are not allowed.
  • On-site Participants: Smoking is prohibited in the entire building and due to the very high forest fire risk smoking in or near the forest areas is also prohibited. Please use the marked Smoking Areas in front of building H. Please switch off any mobile phones in the lecture hall.
