The professional Code of Conduct outlined by the Astronomical Society of Australia will be upheld throughout this workshop. Participants of this workshop are required to comply with the following guidelines:
- 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, sexual attention or innuendo, deliberate intimidation, stalking, and photography or recording of an individual without consent. It also includes offensive comments related to race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size or religion.
- All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual or sexist language and imagery is not appropriate.
- Be considerate and respectful to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Critique ideas rather than individuals.
Attendees violating these guidelines may be asked to leave the event at the sole discretion of the organisers without a refund of any charge. Any participant who wishes to report a violation of this policy is asked to speak, in confidence, to any of the SOC/LOC members. More information about this code of conduct are discussed here.
