Code of Conduct

We follow on the ACM CSCW Code of Conduct in this space. This code of conduct guides the expected professional behavior of conference participants, including:

  • Treating everyone with respect and consideration; under the umbrella of respect, we expect all participants to be mindful of their speech and behaviors.
  • Communicating openly and thoughtfully with others and being considerate of the multitude of views and opinions that may be different than your own.
  • Being respectful and mindful in your critique of ideas.
  • Respecting others' identities in full, e.g., using their specified pronouns.
  • Respecting others' right to engage or disengage in conversation.
  • Accepting responsibility to take action, as bystanders and advocates, to call out and report misbehavior and to hold each other accountable to the Code.
We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. We adhere to the ACM policy referenced above, but have additional policies listed below. Harassment includes, but is not limited to:

  • Comments that target other participants based on characteristics such as gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, age, ability, status, physical appearance, body size, or religion.
  • Unwelcome personal attention, particularly when one individual has authority over the other.
  • Persistent, unwanted attempts to contact another group member, particularly when one individual has authority over the other.
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or threats of violence.
  • Sustained disruption of presentations, events, or online discussion.
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
We expect everyone to participate in enforcing these policies. Any community member can report violations of the CSCW Code of Conduct. Reports can be named or anonymous. We encourage peers and especially senior community members to make reports on behalf of colleagues who are not in a position to do so themselves, preferably with their consent. Once we have received notification of a complaint, the organizers will follow up and determine appropriate action.
