6S 2020 Workshop Code of Conduct

Text

For the 6S virtual workshop this year (2020), we have adopted the following code of conduct. This draws on the code that Eleanor Armstrong and Divya M. Persaud (both University College London) developed for the "Space Science in Context" conference in May 2020. We would like to acknowledge their kindness in giving us permission to use this code.

Our aim 

We aim to foster a productive, collaborative experience at the virtual 6S workshop in the spirit of liberation. We do not tolerate the following:

  1. Screen-shotting or screen-recording at any point of the conference without the expressed permission from video or poster speakers
  2. Spam in chat windows or contact forms, including reposting the same word/content repeatedly in order to disrupt the conversation
  3. Harassment, bullying, and intimidation

We have a zero-tolerance policy for harassment and bullying, which we define as:

  1. Negative comments about race/ethnicity, gender (including gender identity), sexual orientation, disability, age, religion, physical appearance, citizenship, or other protected categories
  2. Intimidation or threats, including of the moderators
  3. Misusing screen-sharing capabilities
  4. Sharing images especially to threaten or sexually harass
  5. Unwelcome sexual attention
  6. Threatening or other endangerment of minors
  7. Any activity meant to convey or cultivate hostility
  8. Ad hominem insults or other attacks
  9. Encouraging the above behaviour

Please also avoid the following:

  1. Interrupting speakers and fellow attendees
  2. Use of any GIFs but especially flashing GIFs in the chat

 Enforcement

If you violate the code of conduct, we retain the right to make you leave the session and you will not be permitted to rejoin.

We welcome reports of harassment. All reports will be kept confidential and may be done anonymously via this form.
