News Embargo Policy

All materials presented at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference® 2020 (AAIC®) are embargoed for publication and broadcast until the date and time of presentation at the conference, or an embargo date and time specified by the Alzheimer's Association® in advance. Please contact the Alzheimer’s Association Public Relations Department at with any questions.

All news media representatives, scientists, funders of science presented at AAIC and AAIC exhibitors/sponsors agree to be bound by the AAIC confidentiality policy, and by news embargoes and release times stated on news releases and other news materials issued by the Alzheimer's Association and AAIC.

Embargoed AAIC news materials are intended specifically for each journalist's individual use and are not to be shared in any way with anyone until the news embargo date/time has passed. By accepting embargoed AAIC news materials, journalists acknowledge that the materials are solely for their use and that they will not distribute, publish, broadcast or in any other way share them before the news embargo time has passed.

If a reporter or news media outlet breaks an AAIC 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.
