The Data Central meetings Code of Conduct is based on the Astronomical Society of Australia's code.
We ask that you follow these guidelines:
- Behave professionally. Harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary comments or jokes are not appropriate. Harassment includes, but is not limited to, 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 issues including 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.
Individuals engaging in behaviour prohibited by this policy as well as those making allegations of harassment in bad faith will be subject to disciplinary action. Such actions range from a verbal warning to ejection from the meeting or activity in question without refund of registration fees and the reporting of their behaviour to their employer.
Anyone who wishes to report a violation of this policy is asked to speak confidentially to the meeting organisers.
Thanks for your cooperation!
