How to Write Idiap correctly and Use Idiap Logos

The name "Idiap" alone must be written with an Uppercase for the first letter and the rest in lowercase, i.e., Idiap, and not idiap or IDIAP.

"Idiap Research Institute" and "Institut de Recherche Idiap" must be written with Uppercases, except when "institut de recherche" is obviously a common name.

The position, the size and the ratio between the components of the Idiap logo can not be changed in any case. Do not change the aspect ratio of the logo. Do not stretch individually the width or the height of the logo.
