Code of Conduct

We are committed to creating a virtual work environment that is safe, professional and of mutualtrust where diversity and inclusion are valued, and where everyone is entitled to be treated withcourtesy and respect. We commit to making the workshop and all associated activities productiveand enjoyable for everyone. 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, unwelcome sexual attention or innuendo, deliberate intimidation, stalking, and photography or recording where this runs counter to peoples express wishes. It also includes offensive comments related to individual characteristics, for example:  age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, nationality 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  respectful  and  do  not  insult  or  put  down  other  attendees  or  facilitators  of  the  event. Critique ideas, not people.

4.  Should a participant witness events of bullying,  harassment or aggression,  we recommend that they approach the affected person to show support and check how they are.  The witness may also wish to suggest that the person report the inappropriate behaviour.  However, it is up to the affected person alone whether or not they wish to report it.

5.  Participants are asked not to share the contents of talks/slides via social media unless speak-ers have given explicit permission.

Any participant who wishes to report a violation of this policy is asked to speak, in confidence, to Ross Church (ross [at] astro [dot] lu [dot] se) or Karin Lind (karin [dot] lind [at] astro [dot] su [dot] se), who are the contact points for  all  matters  related  to  this  code.   If  asked  to  stop  inappropriate  behaviour  participants  are expected to comply immediately and, in serious cases, may be asked to leave the event.  We willnot tolerate retaliation against anyone reporting violations of this code of conduct.

Thank you for helping to make this workshop welcoming for all.
