Philosophy

Events policy

We strive for a welcoming and friendly atmosphere at all our events and for all participants. We ask that participants in our events be kind to others, and we do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

Seminar conduct

We ask all seminar participants to behave courteously and respectfully towards the speaker and other participants. We have a specific policy covering seminar questions etc.; eg seminar chairs are mandated to take questions in whichever order they see fit, to refuse requests to ask a follow-up question, and to cut off questioners who violate hand/finger norms. 

Harassment

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the organisers may take any appropriate action they deem necessary, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the event staff immediately.

Sexually explicit language and imagery

Sexually explicit language and imagery is not appropriate for any event venue, including talks, unless it is necessary to the topic of discussion and no alternative exists. In particular, the use of gratuitous sexual images or examples as attention-getting devices is not appropriate.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all event venues and related social events. Some events may have additions to this policy.
