Code of Conduct
The organisers of SIP 2019 commit to providing a safe, respectful, harassment-free, accessible, and pleasant conference experience with equity in rights for all.
We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants.
Harassment includes but is not limited to overt and/or covert acts of:
Verbal accusations or bullying
Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following both in person and online
Harassing photography or recording
Sustained disruption of talks or other events
Interference with a person’s participation or opportunity for participation
Inappropriate physical contact
Unwelcome sexual attention
Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behaviour
We expect participants to follow these rules during all conference events as well as any social media coverage. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference (without a refund) at the discretion of the conference organisers. A response that the participant was “just joking”, or “teasing”, or being “playful”, will not be accepted.
Anyone witnessing or subject to unacceptable behavior should notify individual members of the SIP 2019 Committee or approach a volunteer who will be wearing an identifying T-shirt and/or badge.
