Distribution and use of advance materials from the EAU is controlled by the embargo policy. This policy is designed to provide news reporters an opportunity to write accurate news stories while ensuring that publicity does not appear prematurely. Through consistent implementation of our embargo policy, we work to maintain a fair and level playing field that gives no one reporter or organisation an advantage over others.
Accepted abstracts of the 33rd Annual EAU Congress will be available online in the EAU18 Resource Centre as of 16 February 2018 for members of the press and EAU members. To get an access code, please contact the EAU Press Office. The information contained in the abstracts is embargoed until the abstracts are available online for the general audience as of 16 March 2018.
- The embargo runs out on the day the congress, meeting or course starts. Precise embargo dates accompany all advanced materials. Embargoed information is not to be made public in any format, including print, television, radio or via the Internet, before the embargo date.
- Advanced material is for background research only. Journalists may not redistribute the information within or outside their news organisation with the following exception: journalists may share embargoed papers with experts in the field for the purpose of obtaining relevant commentary. The embargo date and time must be clearly indicated on the embargoed materials. Journalists are responsible for ensuring that all third parties honour the embargo date.
- Journalists should credit the EAU as the source of the information. Please note that the articles in EAU publications report original research by independent authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the European Association of Urology.
- Supporting materials provided by the EAU, such as graphics, audio and video clips must be credited to the appropriate source. These materials may not be used to illustrate stories unrelated to the relevant article without express permission from the EAU.
