Code of Conduct for EASR conferences
The EASR expects the organizers of any EASR conference to make this event accessible and
productive for everyone, regardless of age, disability, gender identity, physical appearance, race,
religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and
maternity. We will not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. All participants are
expected to follow these guidelines:
- Behave professionally. Be courteous, respectful, and cognizant of cultural differences and
- Be constructive in your questions and discussions. Do not insult or put down other
- Harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary comments or jokes are not appropriate.
Harassment includes sustained disruption of talks, inappropriate physical contact, sexual
attention or innuendo, intimidation, stalking, and photography or recording of an
individual without consent. It also includes offensive comments related to protected
characteristics as listed above.
- All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of
many different backgrounds.
Participants asked to stop any inappropriate behaviour, for example by the session chair, are
expected to comply immediately. Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the event
at the sole discretion of the organizers.
Any participant who wishes to report a violation of this policy or to seek support is asked to
contact, in confidence, the general secretary of the EASR, another officer of the EASR or a
member of the local organizing committee.
