PAFAR Workshop 2022: Code of Conduct

The Chair and Organising Committees of PAFAR Workshop 2022 value your attendance and are dedicated to providing a discrimination- and harassment-free conference experience for all delegates, regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, age, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, or technology choice.

Harassment includes: offensive or exclusionary comments, jokes or images, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention or innuendo, deliberate intimidation, stalking and photography or recording of an individual without consent.

By registering for PAFAR Workshop 2022 you are agreeing to abide by this Code of Conduct:

  • We ask that you behave professionally at all times.
  • Harassment or discrimination is not appropriate in any conference venue, including talks, workshops, social events and online media.
  • All communication should be appropriate for an audience that includes people of many different backgrounds.
  • Please be considerate and respectful of fellow delegates and Conference organisers. Do not insult people or put them down and ensure that you critique ideas rather than individuals.

Individuals found to be in violation of this Code of Conduct, or of making allegations in bad faith, will be subject to disciplinary action. Such action may include: a verbal warning, expulsion from the conference without refund, or reporting of inappropriate behaviour to an employer.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any concerns relating to harassment or discrimination, please contact a conference organiser – look for the identifying badge. Contact details will be in the delegate satchel.

Workshop organisers are happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe.

We expect participants to follow these rules at workshop venues and conference-related social events.
