The Organisers are committed to making this conference productive and enjoyable for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, or religion of the participants. For this reason, harassment of participants in any form will not be tolerated.

Policies to promote an inclusive environment and support for attendees who require assistance to participate in the workshop will be developed. This will include, but will not limited to, the Code of Conduct below. As part of the registration process, all attendees are required to agree to adhere to this Code of Conduct.

Code of Conduct

Attendees are required to behave professionally. Harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary comments or jokes and any bullying behaviour are not appropriate. Compliance with these principles and, in particular, with the present Code of Conduct is expected throughout the event and any future interactions that may result from it.

Harassment includes sustained disruption of talks or other events, sustained unwanted contact, sexual attention or innuendo, deliberate intimidation, pressuring, 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.

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. Non-confrontational alternatives can be to create a distraction or to refer the person to an Organiser. If you witness or experience harassment, please notify one of the organisers immediately, so they can take appropriate action. Harassment, bullying and hate speech should be reported to UCL Report + Support, and hate crimes should be reported to the UCL Hate Crime Reporting Centre


When someone is asked to stop any behaviour that violates the Code of Conduct, they are expected to comply immediately. In response to behaviour deemed inappropriate by the Organising Committee (e.g.rudeness, unprofessional), the Organisers may take any action they deem appropriate.

Attendees who display any behaviour considered harassment will be asked to leave the event immediately or will be removed from the event by the organisers.
