The organizers of this workshop are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. This code of conduct applies to all workshop spaces, including both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the organizers.
It is the policy of the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) that all members and visitors will conduct themselves in a professional manner that is welcoming and free from any form of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. Members and visitors will avoid any inappropriate actions or statements based on individual characteristics such as age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, nationality, or political affiliation. Disruptive or harassing behavior of any kind will not be tolerated. Harassment includes but is not limited to inappropriate or intimidating behavior and language, unwelcome jokes or comments, unwanted touching or attention, offensive images, photography without permission, and stalking. Members and visitors will treat each other with respect to create a collegial, inclusive, and professional environment at the Kavli IPMU.
Because of the international nature of this workshop, it is important to realize that behavior and language that are welcome/acceptable in one particular cultural environment may be unwelcome/offensive to another. Consequently, individuals must use discretion to ensure that their words and actions communicate respect for others. This is especially important for those in positions of authority since individuals with lower rank or status may be reluctant to express their objections or discomfort regarding unwelcome behavior.
All meeting attendees have a role to play in creating an inviting a harassment-free environment through their own behavior and the discouragement of harassing behavior in others. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all workshop spaces and, if necessary, contacting relevant local authorities.
If you are being harassed by another attendee, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact one of the liaisons, Anupreeta More (anupreeta [at] iucaa.in) and Nao Suzuki (nao.suzuki [at] kavli-ipmu.jp), or any of the organizers in person. We will respond as promptly as we can. Retaliation for reporting harassment will not be tolerated and will result in additional sanctions.
