1. All participants, attendees, organizers, invited experts, and vendors are treated with respect and consideration, valuing a diversity of views and opinions.

2. Be considerate, respectful, and collaborative.

3. Communicate openly with respect for others, critiquing ideas rather than individuals.

    Consequences and reporting of unacceptable behavior

    CSC organizers will be debriefed to assist you if you need to report a harassment or other safety/security issue.

Anyone requested to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately. CSC organizers or security may take any action deemed necessary and appropriate, including immediate removal from the meeting without warning. 

    CSC reserves the right to prohibit attendance at any future meeting. 

    If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behavior, please immediately notify a CSC organizer or CSC volunteer in a leadership position onsite. You may also email your concern to Ally Brown or Shuang Yang at atl@comscicon.org

    If you experience or witness behavior that constitutes an immediate or serious threat to public safety, contact 911 and locate a building phone and ask for security.
