Policy on Commercialism

Introduction 
IEEE EMC Society policy prohibits commercialism in all presentations. This applies to written papers, poster papers, presentation slides as well as oral presentations.
Before publication, all presentation materials shall be reviewed by the Symposium Committee for commercialism, and rejected or revised if necessary.

Guidelines 
The following guidelines will be used by the Symposium Committee when reviewing all technical papers and presentation materials:

Authors name, company name, address, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address may be on the first slide only.

All subsequent slides may have only one (discreet) company logotype occupying less than 3% of the total image area in the margin or footer of each slide. No name, address or phone number may be shown.

Material printed in the symposium record may contain, name, company, address, and phone number on the first page only. No logotypes may be used, and no additional mention may be made of the company except as necessary for the technical content of the paper.

Presenters shall refrain from making statements implying their company’s product or service is superior than others, or that such products or services are necessary.

References to trade names shall be considered commercial and shall be minimized.
