Conference Policies

Accessibility

GSA is committed to assisting attendees with special needs. If you have accessibility questions or requests please e-mail mahoney@genetics-gsa.org. If you have difficulty in walking long distances, consider renting a scooter from Scoot Around. They will deliver your scooter to your hotel and pick it up when you no longer need it. For more details, visit www.scootaround.com or call (888) 441-7575.

Children at the Meeting

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Under no circumstances are children under the age of 18 allowed in the poster area during set-up or dismantle times.

Nursing Mothers Room

A Nursing Mothers Room will be available at the conference. Details will be available in January 2019.

Diversity and Inclusion

GSA is committed to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion to create greater opportunity for any individual to fulfil their scientific potential, irrespective of their background, gender, or circumstances. This diversity leads to innovation by attracting the widest possible talent to the community and fostering a greater diversity of ideas, approaches, and perspectives. The Organizing Committee aims to select speakers and session chairs that represent the breadth and diversity of the discipline and conference participants. GSA especially encourages the Committee to select excellent speakers from groups traditionally underrepresented in science, for example: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-18-129.html

Code of Conduct

GSA expects attendees and exhibitors to respect each other, GSA staff, and hotel staff, and to behave in a courteous fashion. Attendees should adhere to common sense rules for public behavior, personal interaction, common courtesy, and respect for private property. Abusive, harassing, or threatening behavior towards any other attendee, GSA staff, or hotel staff will not be tolerated. When at the meeting, immediately report any incidents in which you feel a meeting attendee is abusive, insulting, intimidating, bothersome, or acting in an unsafe or illegal manner at the meeting registration desk or to Anne Marie Mahoney at mahoney@genetics-gsa.org. Please contact: society@genetics-gsa.org if you need to file a formal complaint. The Code of Conduct is under review and will be updated in 2019.
 

 

Social Media/Photo/Video Policy

Live tweeting of presentations is allowed unless the speaker explicitly opts out by stating so at the start of his or her talk. Taking or sharing photos or videos of posters is permitted only with the presenter’s consent during the assigned poster session. Taking photos of posters while the presenter is not present is strictly prohibited. By attending a GSA conference, you grant GSA the right to use your photograph, name, and likeness for use in GSA educational, news, or promotional materials.
