All news media representatives, scientists and their funders, and exhibitors/sponsors agree to honor the embargoes and release times stated on news releases and other news materials issued by the Alzheimer's Association/AAIC 2015.
If a reporter or news media outlet breaks an AAIC 2015 news embargo, the Alzheimer's Association reserves the right to revoke their press access and credentials for the current event and future Alzheimer's Association conferences and events.
