ISPOR supports the promotion of research presented at its conferences, while safeguarding sensitive information, data, and research findings that are not yet available to the public. Due to the sensitive and preliminary nature of data and unpublished research findings, all filming (photos + video) and recording of sessions and research posters is prohibited during the conference. Conference attendees must gain approval from a speaker or poster presenter prior to quoting or publishing that individual's scientific results. Members of the press must identify themselves as such before questioning speakers and conference attendees if using the information in a professional capacity.
