Endorsement of a Non-IACAPAP Event

Endorsement is an official recommendation to IACAPAP members, without active IACAPAP involvement in the programming. IACAPAP maintains no financial or operation obligation in such programming ad assumes no liability for an endorsed meeting. IACAPAP grants permission to use the IACAPAP logo on program brochures and other materials and list the event as an “IACAPAP Endorsed” event on our website.

IACAPAP endorsed events must not clash with IACAPAP World Congress and should not be held within 3 months of IACAPAP World Congress.

The procedure that is followed is set up to allow an efficient and fast decision by IACAPAP. Please provide the necessary information well in advance of the event (and before any publicity is distributed) to enable quick reactions of the IACAPAP Bureau Members. It is recommended to submit a request for more than 3 months before the first paper submission deadline. Proposals submitted after this deadline could be summarily rejected. Proposals that already use the IACAPAP logo/name either in publicity material or websites will be summarily rejected without further consideration.
