Nuclear & Plasma Sciences Society

There are several requirements and policies from IEEE and NPSS which need to be communicated at your conference. Please place them on your website.

Logos

When organizing an NPSS conference, the IEEE NPSS logo must appear on the conference website. A zip file of NPSS logos is available here.

Required Website Cookies Banner and IEEE Privacy Policy

A banner about the use of cookies is required on sponsored conference websites due to the GDPR law. Instruction on how to do this can be found at here. In addition, each website must contain a link to the IEEE Privacy Policy.

IEEE Event Terms and Conditions

The Event Terms and Conditions sets out the conditions between IEEE and the individual when registering for any event organized by IEEE. They are in addition to the IEEE Privacy Policy and covers areas such as disclosure of their personal information to event vendors supporting the event (i.e. registration, housing, and mobile application providers) photography and videography statements, as well as badge scanning during an event, among others.

When asking people to fill out registration details, conference organizers will need to make sure that they are GDPR ready.

All events will be required to incorporate pro-active consent to both the IEEE Privacy and IEEE Event Terms and Conditions as part of the event registration process to capture and affirm active consent. Acceptance is mandatory as a condition of registration for an IEEE event. For audit purposes, they must remain as two separate questions and cannot be combined.

Please add a tick box, as shown below, on your conference webpage and a link to the IEEE Terms and Conditions https://www.ieee.org/conferences/event-terms-and-conditions.html.

All events are required to incorporate pro-active consent to both the IEEE Privacy Policy and IEEE Event Terms and Conditions as part of the event registration process to capture and affirm active consent. Acceptance is mandatory as a condition of registration for an event and requires a specific format. Best practice is to place these questions on a stand-alone page allowing the attendee to focus on these questions as well as ensure they are not lost during the registration process. If possible, they should do this before the registrant enters any personally identifiable information.

Photography at Conferences

IEEE requires the following minimal policy to inform your attendees:

Attendance at, or participation in, this conference constitutes consent to the use and distribution by IEEE of the attendee’s image or voice for informational, publicity, promotional and/or reporting purposes in print or electronic communications media.  No flash photography will be used.

Video recording by participants and other attendees during any portion of the conference is not allowed without special prior written permission of IEEE.

Photographs of copyrighted PowerPoint or other slides are for personal use only and are not to be reproduced or distributed.  Do not photograph any such images that are labeled as confidential and/or proprietary.

Non-Discrimination Policy

IEEE is committed to the principle that all persons shall have equal access to programs, facilities, services, and employment without regard to personal characteristics not related to ability, performance, or qualifications as determined by IEEE policy and/or applicable laws.

The following Non Discrimination Code of Conduct is asked to be communicated:

IEEE is committed to the principle that all persons shall have equal access to programs, facilities, services, and employment without regard to personal characteristics not related to ability, performance, or qualifications as determined by IEEE policy and/or applicable laws.

Ethics and Compliance

IEEE strives to achieve the highest standards of integrity and endeavors to conduct business around the world in a responsible and ethical way. It is important that those who act on the organization’s behalf ensure IEEE’s compliance by adhering to the same standards and expectations. The IEEE code of Conduct describes the commitment of IEEE members and staff to the highest standards of integrity, responsible behavior, and ethical and professional conduct. Find the IEEE Code of Conduct at https://www.ieee.org/about/ieee_code_of_conduct.pdf

Reports of violations, or concerns regarding potential violations, of IEEE Policies or the IEEE Code of Conduct can be filed anonymously through EthicsPoint at +1 888 359 6323 or by submitting an online report at https://secure.ethicspoint.com/domain/en/report_custom.asp?clientid=20410

For Your Plenary or Opening Session

NPSS gives various Grants and Awards, we  have three journals,  Social Media channels, and support Women In Engineering events. Below you will find example slides that can be used to inform the conference attendees about NPSS activities. We kindly ask you to show them in your plenary/opening session and in other sessions.

Information on Plagiarism

Information to authors of conference proceedings about the check for plagiarism before publication:
Authors should be aware that each manuscript will be checked for plagiarism before publication.  If plagiarism is found, the manuscript will automatically be rejected.  In addition, each manuscript will be checked to ensure that there is not excessive reuse of an author’s previously published material; the manuscript should contain significant new content beyond anything previously published.  If it is determined that there is insufficient new content, the manuscript will be rejected.
