Embargo includes all published abstracts in the abstract books of an EAU, EBU or ESU congress, meeting or course. The embargo runs out on the day the congress, meeting or course starts. Precise embargo dates accompany all advanced materials. Embargoed information is not to be made public in any format, including print, television, radio or via the Internet, before the embargo date.
Advanced material is for background research only. Journalists may not redistribute the information within or outside their news organisation with the following exception: journalists may share embargoed papers with experts in the field for the purpose of obtaining relevant commentary. The embargo date and time must be clearly indicated on the embargoed materials. Journalists are responsible for ensuring that all third parties honour the embargo date.
Journalists should credit the EAU as the source of the information. Please note that the articles in EAU publications report original research by independent authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the European Association of Urology.
Supporting materials provided by the EAU, such as graphics, audio and video clips must be credited to the appropriate source. These materials may not be used to illustrate stories unrelated to the relevant article without express permission from the EAU.
Photography, filming, and interviews at any location within the congress venue (with the exception of the EAU Press Centre and EAU Press Conference Room) are prohibited without written permission from the EAU. To request permission, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your name/company name, the reason for filming, and what you would like to film and when. The Press Coordinator will do her best to accommodate all requests prior to the meeting and will send an official permission letter which you will need to show onsite.
Failure to adhere to this policy will result in revocation of access to all embargoed material from the EAU.
