We ask all participants, both for the online discussion and in-person conference, to read and abide by our Code of Conduct
The organizers are committed to making this meeting productive and enjoyable for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality or religion. We will not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Please follow these guidelines:
Behave professionally. Harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary comments or jokes are not appropriate. Harassment includes sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, sexual attention or innuendo, deliberate intimidation, stalking, and photography or recording of an individual without consent. It also includes offensive comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race or religion.
All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate.
Be kind and respectful to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees.
This conference may allow online participation in addition to on-site participation. The organizers also ask online participants to behave professionally on any online platforms. Any text comments or direct messages to other participants and open comments are treated equally as physical behavior.
Participants asked to stop any inappropriate behavior are expected to comply immediately. Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the event and to delete the online account at the sole discretion of the organizers without a refund of any charge.
