During Palaeontological Association meetings, attendees should respect common sense rules for behaviour in public electronic communications and respect the intellectual property of presenters (please see the Code of Conduct for more information). We ask attendees not to photograph a poster or record a talk without the author’s express permission. While the default assumption is to allow open discussion of presentations on social media, attendees are expected to respect any request by an author to not disseminate the contents of their talk or poster. As such we have developed a range of visual signs that authors can use to allow or deny permission to other delegates for a range of common activities.
How to Use
If you wish to use one of our permission signs please right click on the image with your mouse, this will bring up a context menu, from this menu select "Save Image As...". Once you have the required image please display it prominently on your presentation. For oral talks we recommend placing the image on your first slide (i.e. the title slide). For posters either printed as part of the poster or as a separate sticker/printout that can be placed next to the poster. We recommend a minimum printed size of 50x50 mm, and maximum size of 100x100 mm. There is no minimum or maximum size recommend for oral talks, however please make them large enough for the audience to see.
