Following discussion, the PC voted on the copyright provision and distribution license of
ICPhS Proceedings from 2012 onwards.

The PC approved the following resolution:

  1. Copyright will remain with the author(s) at all times.
  2. Papers distributed in conference proceedings (whether print or digital) and posted on the
    IPA's public ICPhS Archive will be licensed by their authors under a Creative Commons
    Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 or 4.0 Unported License (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 or 4.0).

The vote was 17 in favor of the resolution, 0 against, and 8 abstentions.

The CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 or 4.0 license allows non-commercial reproduction and distribution by
others of the papers, as long as attribution is made to the author(s). It disallows commercial
reproduction and derivative works (e.g. translate the work without permission); permission for
such disallowed uses must be sought separately from individual authors.

informing prospective Congress participants that they can receive a discount on the
ICPhS2015 registration fee (as well as full IPA membership rights for 2015) if they become
members of the Association by February 1, 2015. The announcement will also provide
information (to be provided by the IPA Secretary) about the membership fee and membership
rights for 2015.

making available some Gösta Bruce Student Scholarships.
