Third Party Media Releases

Companies wishing to organise any press conference for the media during the event should send a request in writing to the EBCC-12 Secretariat ( It is not permitted to schedule media events to coincide with key conference sessions. Any media briefings or other media events must pertain to presentations being made to the conference in oral or poster sessions, and not at satellite symposia alone. Reference to the conference can only be made in connection with scientific presentations planned in the official programme of the meeting. This applies to any media event. The programme and invitations for any third party media event should be submitted to and agreed in writing by the EBCC-12 Secretariat before any invitations are sent out.

All third party press releases relating to the conference must be labelled clearly with the abstract number, time and date of presentation to the conference. All third party media materials, including press releases, media invitations, flyers and posters, should be submitted to, and agreed by the EBCC-12 Secretariat before they are issued to the media. Third party press releases relating to late breaking and oral abstracts must be embargoed to the date of the presentation, with the earliest possible embargo time being 00.01 hrs CEST on the day of presentation; for those relating to other abstracts in the official media programme, please discuss embargoes with the EBCC Secretariat (

Studies that form part of the official EBCC-12 media programme cannot be included by third parties in their own news briefings before the official EBCC-12 news briefing.

Third party media materials (including press releases, media invitations, flyers and posters) must not contain the logos of EBCC-12, EBC Council or any of its members (unless it is material from one of those members) and must not be presented in any way that could be construed as suggesting endorsement by the 12th European Breast Cancer Conference (EBCC-12), EBC Council or any of its members (unless it is material from one of those members).
