Press Registration

Credentialed press is eligible to receive complimentary press registration (press pass) which allows access to all educational and scientific sessions at the SIIM24 Annual Meeting.

Members of the press may request press passes for editorial purposes only. Press must include verification that they are a working member of the news media along with their request. Acceptable verification may include, a business card with your name and title from an established publication/media outlet, or a letter stating that you are on assignment at the SIIM Annual Meeting printed on official news organization letterhead.

Freelance writers may request press credentials if they are on assignment for a specific publication, and if accompanied by a letter of assignment from the publication.

Please email Priyanka Harilal to request a press pass.  The deadline for requesting a press pass is June 15, 2024.

Social Media Guidelines

X (Twitter) Official hashtag - #SIIM24

SIIM permits and encourages the use of social media, such as Facebook, X(Twitter), LinkedIn, and blogging at the conference as a way to summarize, highlight, excerpt, review, critique, or promote the presented materials, syllabus materials, or the conference in general, provided that:

  • The material is not shared in full
  • The author or speaker is referenced and cited appropriately in each case.

Please keep in mind that our presenters have invested many hours in the development of this material and copyright laws apply.

Out of respect for the other participants, we ask that noise-making electronic devices be silenced, though they need not be turned off, so that they may be used to follow along in the syllabus, tweet, or take notes by the above-stated social media policy.

Following an X(Twitter) account or including an account in a X(Twitter) list does not constitute a SIIM endorsement; the same applies to re-tweeting messages or marking them as "favorites."

We encourage participants to follow us on:

Tweet to SIIM @SIIM_Tweets for general information or use the hashtag #SIIM24 for annual meeting-related tweets

  • Blog, post, and tweet about what you are hearing and seeing at the meeting (highlighting or commenting on, but not sharing in detail, any of the material presented)
  • Provide feedback to the SIIM Board of Directors, the Annual Meeting Program Committee, and/or SIIM staff. (For example, discuss topics of interest and/or speakers for next year's conference, make suggestions for sessions, or comment on the conference format)
  • Keep criticism constructive and respectful
  • We request that participants in the conference refrain from using audio and/or video recording devices including smartphones, tablets, and other handheld smart devices. These are strictly prohibited in sessions, except by prior written agreement.
