The organisers are committed to making this conference productive and enjoyable for everyone, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, national origin, nationality, religion, or political considerations unrelated to science. We will not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. As part of the registration process, attendees are required to agree to adhere to this code of conduct. The code applies to all attendees – delegates, sponsors, exhibitors and accompanying persons – whether in-person or remote.
- Code of Conduct:
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 or belittling comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity or religion. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference activities, including talks, coffee breaks, excursions, evening events, the online conference platform, Twitter and other online media. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. For any conference hosted on an Imperial College campus, organisers are reminded that, although the College is a public space, Imperial holds the right to remove any person who does not adhere to the code of conduct.
- Incident reporting and resolution:
If you observe someone making you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please tell them so, and remind them of the Code of Conduct. If you are hesitant about addressing the person yourself, report it as soon as possible to a member of the Local Organising Committee. The Committee is committed to addressing and resolving the matter to the best of their abilities, and may, if necessary, seek support from trained staff at Imperial College. All reports will be treated in confidence.
- Adherence to IUPAP policies
To secure IUPAP sponsorship, the organisers have provided assurance that ICAP will be conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles as stated in the IUPAP resolution passed by the General Assembly in 2008 and 2011. In particular, no bona fide scientist will be excluded from participation on the grounds of national origin, nationality, or political considerations unrelated to science. See our IUPAP page for further details.
