Press and Embargo Policy
WMS prefer companies not to do any press releases on site at the congress. No press passes are available. The embargo date is the presentation day, e.g. for a late breaking abstract this the last day of the congress. For general presentations that would be the beginning of the scientific programme for the congress (local time).
