While we encourage the use of social media before, during, and after the Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function as a means to share information and network with others who are attending the meeting, we remind you to adhere to Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function social media guidelines, including the following:
- Follow the Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function on Facebook at: facebook.com/LorneProteinsConference
- Blog or tweet about what you are hearing and learning at the Annual Meeting, but refrain from sharing when the speaker explicitly requests you do so. Talks are tweetable and shareable by default, but speakers can ask that specific details or slides are not shared.
- Converse and network with other attendees before, during, and after the conference.
- Provide feedback to the Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function staff and the Program Committee – we encourage attendees to post/discuss topics of interest and ideas for future annual meetings.
- Communicate with respect and consideration for others, and keep criticism constructive.

Therefore, it is also strictly prohibited to post photos/images or video recordings from these sessions on any type of online site, including social media platforms, blogs, personal Web pages, etc.

- Engage in rudeness, slander, or personal attacks.
The Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function strives to achieve gender balance in all aspects of their conference. The committee endeavours to achieve this balance through equal female and male representation on the organising committees and as session chairs as well as through invitations to high quality speakers of both sexes in line with the gender balance in our research community.
For more about the development of our gender balance policies see this article on the Women in Science Australia webpage here.
