The organisation of the XIV Congress of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB2013) permits and encourages the use of social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and blogging during all poster and oral presentations, including presentations during the plenary sessions, symposia sessions and technical workshops as a way to summarize, highlight, excerpt, review, critique, and/or promote the presented materials and the event in general, provided that:
- copyright law is observed
- verbatim information is limited to a few quotes
- the author or speaker does not openly state that reporting on the content presented is not allowed
- the author or speaker is referenced and cited appropriately.
Please keep in mind that our presenters have invested many hours in the development of this material and copyright laws apply
Out of respect for the other participants, we ask that noise-making electronic devices be silenced, though they need not be turned off, so that they may be used to follow along in the programme, tweet, or take notes in accordance with the above stated social media policy.
We encourage congress attendants to:
- Follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/eseb2013

- Follow us on LinkedIn at linkedin.com/company/eseb-2013
- Send us a tweet @eseb2013 for general information or use the hashtag #eseb2013 for ESEB2013 related tweets.
- Blog, post, and tweet about what you are hearing and seeing during the congress
- Take and share photographs, but request the permission of speakers if you would like to take their photograph (please take photographs only before a session starts, or after it concludes).
- Provide feedback to ESEB2013 staff, symposia organisers and chairs.
- Keep criticism constructive.
We request that congress attendants refrain from:
- Using audio and/or video recording devices. These are strictly prohibited during the plenary sessions, symposia and poster sessions, unless by prior written agreement from the ESEB2013 organisation and consent from the speakers and poster authors.
- Infringing on the intellectual property rights of the ESEB2013 organisation and other delegates.
