Event Conduct and Safety Statement Language
IEEE believes that science, technology, and engineering are fundamental human activities, for which openness, international collaboration, and the free flow of talent and ideas are essential. Its meetings, conferences, and other events seek to enable engaging, thoughtprovoking conversations that support IEEE’s core mission of advancing technology for humanity. Accordingly, IEEE is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment to all participants, including staff and vendors, at IEEE-related events.
IEEE has no tolerance for discrimination, harassment, or bullying in any form at IEEE-related events. All participants have the right to pursue shared interests without harassment or discrimination in an environment that supports diversity and inclusion. Participants are expected to adhere to these principles and respect the rights of others.
IEEE seeks to provide a secure environment at its events. Participants should report any behavior inconsistent with the principles outlined here, to on site staff, security or venue personnel, or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ISIT Conference Code of Conduct

Summary of Conference Code of Conduct
While conferences and workshops are excellent venues for building a community of collaborators, they can at times, fall short of providing an inclusive, welcoming, and safe environment for all.
The ITSoc Board of Governors (BoG) reminds every attendee to help ensure that our events do not become venues for abuse of power, harassment in any form, (including but not limited to harassment based on race, gender, religion, age, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity), and/or bullying. The ITSoc BoG recommends our attendees to use common sense, to support each other, and create a safe space by speaking up against and/or reporting any form of harassment or bullying.
