Code of Conduct

The EuroSciPy conference benefits from a diverse community, which has grown as a friendly, welcoming and dynamic group.

We trust that attendees will behave towards each other in a way that reflects the view widely shared by this community, that diversity and civility are strengths to be celebrated and fostered.

Furthermore, we believe that the conference will be more productive and enjoyable for everyone if a professional atmosphere prevails, meaning that all delegates may expect to

  • be treated with courtesy, dignity and respect;
  • be free from any form of discrimination, victimisation, harassment or bullying;
  • enjoy an environment free from unwelcome behaviour, inappropriate language and unsuitable imagery.

If problems covered by this code of conduct arise, please contact a EuroSciPy organiser directly. Any complaint will remain confidential and will be investigated. The EuroSciPy organisers will do their best to resolve any conflict and preserve the welcoming character of the conference. As a last resort, a participant may be requested to leave the venue of the conference, without reimbursment.
