Meeting 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:

  1. 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, race or religion.
  2. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual or sexist language and imagery is not appropriate.
  3. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees.
  4. Discretion should be used when posting any meeting pictures to social media sites, in particular to protect the privacy of individuals as part of large crowd scenes. Consent for photography may be assumed when the subject is giving a talk during an EC meeting. In addition, attendance of the meeting signifies consent for appearing in the background of photos where the individual is not the central focus of the image. Publicizing/posting photos of individuals without consent is not permitted.

Any participant who wishes to report a violation of this policy is asked to speak, in confidence, to a member of the Euclid Consortium Diversity Committee.
