The organizers are committed to making this meeting 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 are valued is the responsibility of all the participants. We will not tolerate harassment of attendees or others involved in the meeting in any form. For the entire duration of the lattice conference and in other professional interactions with colleagues we expect our participants to follow these guidelines:
Behave professionally in personal interactions as well as in any other form of communication including social media. Harassment and sexist, racist 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, but is not limited to, offensive comments related to gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality, or the religion or non-religion of participants.
Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down attendees or other individuals associated with the meeting. Scientific discussion and criticism is vital and should be conducted in this spirit.
All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds.
If speakers ask that specific details/slides should not be shared online their request shall be respected.
Should a participant be asked to stop any inappropriate behavior, they are expected to comply. In serious cases, they may be asked to leave the meeting at the sole discretion of the organizers. They may also be banned from participation at future meetings.
Should a participant witness events of bullying, harassment or aggression, we recommend that they approach the affected person and show support. The witness may also suggest that the inappropriate behavior be reported to the organizers and offer to facilitate that reporting if requested.
Participants can report any violation of these guidelines to any of the organisers. Such reports will be treated confidentially.
Thank you for helping to make the Nordic Lattice Meeting welcoming to all.
