The meeting hosts wouldn't let anyone in without a badge, and wouldn't let anyone get a badge without providing a name. The person I was talking to didn't try to claim someone else's name, he just didn't think he should be compelled to provide his own either.

Perhaps we could ask for people to be identified at the registration desk but be able to write whatever they like on the badge? I think this could be a reasonable compromise, and it would not impact on the existing infrastructure and procedures (in fact, you could already do it on the present preregistration form, which has a space for "name to appear on badge").


I am not happy with forcing people to declare their true name at registration, but I am also not sure that letting totally unidentified people wander through the meeting is a good idea. Perhaps this could be allowed for public events such as the public forum, but still I do see security (and appearance-of-security :( ) concerns, especially in the meeting of an American organization in an Arab country.
