Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to the aims and goals of the AIIDE 2017 conference. The organizers of AIIDE 2017 commit to providing a harassment-free, accessible, inclusive, and pleasant conference experience with equity in rights for all. We want every participant to feel welcome, included, and safe at the conference. We have been mindful of this in the selection of the site and menu for the meeting, as well as other logistical arrangements.

We aim to provide a safe, respectful, and harassment-free conference environment for everyone involved regardless of age, sex, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, nationality, marital status, military status, veteran status, religious beliefs, dietary requirements, medical conditions, pregnancy-related concerns or childcare requirements. We also respect any other status protected by laws of the country in which the conference or program is being held.

We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants. We expect all interactions between AIIDE members to be respectful and constructive, including interactions during the review process, at the conference itself, and on social media. Conference participants who violate the terms of this policy may not be welcome to submit to or attend future AIIDE meetings.

Concerns should be brought to the attention of the conference organizers in person (if needed) and definitely in writing, and will be investigated and reviewed by AAAI and the AIIDE Steering Committee. If there is an immediate need for intervention, outside law enforcement authorities may need to be contacted.
