We aim to ensure that all ConSOLE attendees benefit from a safe and respectful environment for the full duration of the conference and associated social activities. By electing to attend ConSOLE you tacitly agree to the following code of conduct. Participants found to be in violation of this code may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference at the discretion of the organisers.

Harassment of any form related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, age, or religion will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Such harassment may include, but is not limited to:

  • Verbal comments that degrade fellow participants on the grounds of their gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, age, religion, etc.
  • Display of sexual or otherwise offensive imagery
  • Persistent unwanted attention or intimidation
  • Inappropriate physical contact
  • Harassing photography or recording
  • Unwelcome sexual attention
  • Encouraging any of the above behaviour

The conference organisers have the power to enforce this code and may take any action they deem appropriate to maintain a welcoming and respectful environment for all ConSOLE attendees.

If you experience harassment of any kind, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any questions related to the code of conduct, please do not hesitate to directly contact a member of the ConSOLE organising committee:

  • Emilia Molimpakis
  • Jane Middleton
  • Cate Canonica
  • Yara Alshaalan

These individuals can be identified by their nametags. The organisers will ensure that you are safe and properly supported, and that the matter is handled with utmost attention to your privacy (your personal report will not be overheard, however an additional member of staff may be required to become involved in order to properly manage your report). Organisers will be happy to contact venue security or local law enforcement, to provide escorts, or otherwise assist you to feel safe for the duration of the event.

We value your attendance and wish you a safe and enjoyable conference.
