Our goal for this event is to create an environment where everyone feels welcome to participate, speak up, ask questions, and engage in conversation. To that end, all attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our symposium are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.
Our symposium is dedicated to providing a harassment-free symposium experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of symposium participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any symposium venue, including talks, workshops, Twitter and other online media. Attendees violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the virtual event space at the discretion of the symposium organizers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the symposium organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the virtual event space.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organizers will be happy to assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the symposium. We value your attendance.
We expect participants to follow these rules in all symposium-related virtual spaces.
