Justification of HAPS author and presenter policies:
HAPS believes that the intellectual contribution to each activity should guide our published statements of attribution.
In the case of posters, HAPS believes that the defining intellectual achievements are completed at the home institution of each individual. Because the intellectual contribution happens away from the conference, we believe it is important to acknowledge both those individuals who were able to travel to the conference and those who were not. In this case, the first line acknowledges all of those who made an intellectual contribution to the actual work on display, and the next line acknowledges those who brought it to the HAPS community.
In the case of workshops, HAPS believes that the defining intellectual achievement happens in the room when the workshop is shared with other participants. While it may be that the presenter of the workshop has received a great deal of help in preparing for the workshop, what happens in the room is entirely the result of people in that room. For this reason, HAPS does not recognize people who are not attending the conference as having an authorship role in workshops. Individuals who may have assisted the presenter with the development of the workshop instead may be listed in an acknowledgement slide at the discretion of the presenter.
