Starting in June 2018, DDW revised its policy to allow for personal, social or non-commercial use. Presenters have the right to request no photography, and in those situations, photography is strictly prohibited.


Attendees taking photos must do so in a non-disruptive manner so as not to disturb the presenter and other attendees. Flash photography is not allowed. Video recording, live audio or video streaming, and/or recording for commercial use is strictly prohibited. Failure to comply with this policy may result in removal from the session room and loss of a DDW registration badge for the remainder of the meeting.


  1. Photography Restrictions in Session Rooms: If the slide includes the “no photos” icon, attendees are strictly prohibited from taking photographs of that slide.
  2. Photography Restrictions in the Poster Hall: If the poster board includes the “no photos” icon, attendees are strictly prohibited from taking photographs of that board.
