Submissions that checkmark none of the above, are rejected.
Submissions that do *not* checkmark the second, or do checkmark the third
item are contacted before acceptance.

I like the idea of the checkbox.

However I am not sure I like the option of disagreement.

We can reassure implicit agreement again at the front door. This is what we
regularly use here in Nuremberg:

This weakens the '[x] I have an issue' checkmark, as we can alway argue:
"... but you went by that notice, so the issue cannot be that serious."

In the essence that when you join such a conference you should expect
at the very least that people will be taking photos. Video recordings
and live streaming is what everybody wants from such a conference. And
it's a bit problematic if a speaker does not want to be recorded, last
year's organization can offer more details on that, since there was an

I wholeheartedly agree with your feelings and expectations. But this is
about the case we get into a conflict. A code of conduct is very similar in
nature. 99% of all people would call ist redundant and feel no need to have
strict rules. But it suddenly becomes an important tool when we get

I'd be happy to deal with speakers that do not want to be recorded.
If nothing can be done, we have no problem to switch off the cameras.

I mean if you don't want to be recorded/live streamed/photographed,
