Rules for Recording and Social Media

Recording Policy

Out of respect for our speakers, unless you receive their express approval beforehand, please do not use any visual or audio recording devices to record speakers during their presentation. At individual sessions, enforcement is the responsibility of the session chair, as directed by the speakers.


The Ellison Center for Russian, East European and Central Asian Studies reserves the right to take still photographs of presentations at the REECAS NW Conference for possible publication on its website, newsletter, or other official publications; by attending such events, attendees are granting permission to UW to be included in such photographs.

Social Media Guidelines

To enhance intellectual exchange and facilitate virtual attendance with so many simultaneous sessions, we encourage the use of social media to broadcast the content of the REECAS NW Conference. The official hashtag is #REECASNW.

  • First and foremost, think before you tweet or post on Facebook and Instagram. Use common sense and courtesy. Remember, we are a community of professionals and we should conduct ourselves professionally.
  • Be clear about whose work you are presenting – is this claim made by the presenter, an audience member, or something you thought of yourself?
  • If a presenter does not wish for their material to be mentioned on social media, they should make an effort to inform their audience prior to the event or display the information on their slides, if relevant.

Opinions expressed by creators, moderators, posters and commentators are their own, and not necessarily that of the Ellison Center and the University of Washington or its affiliates.

The Ellison Center and the University of Washington is not responsible for the content of third party social media websites and does not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on them.
