EAYAM 2024 Code of Conduct and Anti-Harassment Statement
We expect all attendees to adhere to the following guidelines:
Professional Behavior: Inappropriate comments, jokes, or behaviour such as harassment, sexism, racism, or exclusion are unacceptable. Harassment includes disruptions of talks or events, unwelcome physical contact, sexual attention or innuendo, intimidation, stalking, unauthorised photography or recording.
Respectful Communication: All interactions should be suitable for a diverse professional audience. Avoid using sexual or sexist language or imagery.
Consideration for Others: Treat fellow attendees with consideration and respect. Refrain from insulting or belittling others. Focus on critiquing ideas rather than individuals.
Harassment-Free Environment: EAYAM 2024 is committed to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. Harassment, discrimination, or retaliation for reporting violations of this code will not be tolerated. This code applies to all EAYAM 2024 spaces, online and offline. Violators may face sanctions or expulsion at the organisers' discretion.

- Offensive comments about gender, race, age, religion, etc.
- Unwanted comments about personal choices, lifestyle, and practices.
- Misgendering or using rejected names.
