The photo and slide sharing policy has changed this year:

  • Attendees may not take photos, record audio, or record video in session rooms.
  • Attendees may take photos of posters unless the author opts out by printing the ASHG-supplied ‘no photo’ image on the poster.
  • When uploading their slides for presentation, oral presenters may opt in to sharing their slides with fellow meeting attendees via a secure website.
