In the case of the 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health, as with most scientific or medical conferences, all conference abstracts are released to media under a strict embargo policy.
All oral abstracts are embargoed until the time and date of the start session in which they are delivered, or during a press conference – whichever comes first.
All poster abstracts are embargoed until 07.30 CET Wednesday, 24 October 2018.
As well as having access to the materials detailed above, the media is also given prior access to the speakers’ slides. However, access is only granted to media onsite at the conference and the same embargo rules apply – meaning the information in speaker slides cannot be referenced or published before the start of the presentation.
Breaking of the embargo policy by a reporter will lead to one or more of the following measures:
Any breaches of the embargo by media will be brought to the attention of the Media Embargo Committee. If you have questions, please contact The Union’s press team at firstname.lastname@example.org
