Code of Conduct 

The organizers are committed to making this seminar series productive and enjoyable for everyone. Creating a supportive professional environment where open and frank discussion of ideas can take place, where everyone is treated with courtesy and respect, and in which diversity and inclusion are valued is the responsibility of all the participants. We will not tolerate harassment of attendees or others involved in the conference in any form. By joining the Zoom call, you agree to follow these guidelines:

1) Behave professionally in personal interactions. Harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary comments or jokes are not appropriate. Harassment includes sustained disruption of talks or scientific discussions, deliberate intimidation, stalking, offensive comments related to gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality, or the religion or non-religion of participants.

2) Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down the speaker or the other attendees. Scientific discussion and criticism is vital and should be conducted in this spirit.

3) All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds.

Should a participant be asked to stop any inappropriate behavior, they are expected to comply immediately. In serious cases, they may be muted or asked to leave the meeting at the sole discretion of the organizers. 



Registration for this event is currently open.
