REGULATIONS + SAFETY INFORMATION

                     A NOTE ON PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY
                     FROM THE MEETING ORGANIZERS
                     Recording & Photography Policy
                     AIChE Meetings are one of the primary ways the Institute fulfills its mission to advance the development and
                     exchange of relevant knowledge. The content presented at this event is the property of the presenters and the firms
                     where they work. Recording of sessions or taking photos of slides is strictly prohibited.

                     General Photography Notice
                     Sessions and events at the meeting are being photographed by a professional photographer. These photos will be
                     used to illustrate articles in CEP Chemical Engineering Progress® Magazine, on the AIChE website and in promotional
                     materials for future Meetings. By registering for this conference, you consent to your likeness being used for such
                     purposes without compensation and release AIChE from any liability on account of such usage.

    SAFETY TIPS
    Enhance your experience at the AIChE Meeting by staying safe.
    Here are some safety tips to observe:

    •   When off the hotel grounds, please do not wear your badge in public. Doing so can give professional opportunists access to your
        name, which they may then exploit to your detriment.
    •   When you are through with your badge, turn it in to registration. Do not leave it laying in the open so that unscrupulous
        individuals have access to it. In addition, please do not let anyone have access to your badge for any purpose. Lending badges to
        others for access to the meeting is strictly prohibited.
    •   Have your room key out and ready when entering your hotel room. Fumbling in an attempt to locate it in either a pocket or purse
        outside your door could be a security risk.
    •   Never give a stranger your room number.
    •   Upon check-in to your room, note where the nearest fire exits are, so you know in which direction to go quickly in case of a fire
        emergency. Remember – smoke rises, so if necessary, while exiting, get as close to the floor as possible when there is heavy
        smoke present.
    •   When out in an urban area, it is advisable to travel in groups or pairs.
    •   L ooking down and concentrating on a mobile device while texting or listening to music through earbuds can be a hazardous
         activity. Doing so while you are attempting to cross a street, get on or off an escalator, walk in a crowd, or make your way
         through an exhibit area can all be harmful to your safety and the safety of others. Recently, there have been many incidents
         of distracted meeting attendees who have attempted to walk up the down escalators or walk down the up escalators in our
         meeting venues.
    •   Please take advantage of the ample seating provided in our meeting facilities in order to use your mobile device(s) in a calm
        setting, so that you have a safe, enjoyable experience at AIChE meetings.
    •    void excessive consumption of alcohol. Alcohol reduces inhibitions and impairs the capacity to reason – a perfect formula to
        A
        make you a target for unscrupulous behavior.
    This security advisory was implemented by AIChE’s Executive Board of the Program Committee (EBPC) with your safety in mind.
    We welcome any other suggestions you may have to help attendees have a safe and pleasant experience at our meetings.

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL MEETING

                 Say hello to everyone.
                 You might make someone’s day.

                 Introduce yourself to people you don’t know.
                 They may be your next good friends.

                 Stop and smile.
                 You will brighten the room considerably.

                 Be understanding.
                 Everybody makes mistakes.

                 Help those with less experience.
                 We were all novices at some point.

                 Respect others.
                 We all have something valuable to contribute.

                 Value staff and volunteers.
                 They are here for you.

                 Be kind.
                 You will never like everybody, but you can be cordial to all.

                 Enjoy the meeting!
                 You can have fun while sharing, learning and networking.
