Policy on Commercial Support: Presentations must avoid commercialism and should conform to the APS Standards on Commercial Support. Presentations that constitute promotion and advertising will not be accepted including pervasive or inappropriate use of logos. If the cost of a presentation has been underwritten to any extent, a clear acknowledgement stating the support and identifying the source should be included in the abstract (e.g., “The support of [corporation or institution] for this project is gratefully acknowledged.”). Statements made in presentations are the sole responsibility of the author or presenter.
