Code of Conduct and Reporting

Just as with an in-person conference, participants of the online Neutrino 2020 conference will conduct themselves in a professional manner that is welcoming to all and free from any form of discrimination, harassment, bullying, or retaliation. Participants will treat each other with respect and consideration to create a collegial, inclusive, and professional environment. Participants will avoid any inappropriate actions or statements based on individual characteristics of any kind. Disruptive behavior or harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. Harassment includes but is not limited to inappropriate or intimidating behavior or language, unwelcome jokes or comments, unwanted attention, and stalking. Participants will abide by this code in all virtual and professional activities associated with the conference. In addition, participants in the online conference will also be required to share their full identity (first and last names) in all online platforms and virtual environments connected to the conference. Sanctions for violations of this code may range from verbal warning, to ejection from the online conference, to notifying appropriate authorities, at the discretion of the organizers.


If you have witnessed or experienced a violation of this Code of Conduct, you can submit an online report. Reports can be sent anonymously. Such reports will be viewable only by the Neutrino 2020 conference Co-Chairs: Steve Brice, Marvin Marshak, and Sam Zeller. You are also welcome to send a direct email to any or all of the three Co-Chairs.
