Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct applies to all FORAMS 2023 participants (Students, professionals, accompanies, retired and emeritus status). FORAMS2023 is committed to equality, diversity, inclusion and accessibility; all participants will receive equal treatment regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, gender or sexual orientation, as well as many other characteristics that can be discriminated against.  

All FORAMS2023 participants are expected to:

a) Be committed to quality, diversity and inclusion, and not act in a way that discriminates against any individual or group, for example knowingly disseminate material which appears to encourage discrimination.

b) Help create a supportive, respectful, and inclusive environment for all. Whilst it is recognised that scientific debate should aim to challenge ideas, questions and
discussions should be constructive and never demeaning, abusive or inflammatory.

c) Respect the private property and intellectual property of others, ask first permission to the corresponding author to record a presentation, or to take a picture of a poster. Requests not to disseminate content must always be respected.

d) Behave politely with all fellow participants as well as with all personnel involved in the conference arganization. Alchoolic beverages will be available during lunch time and during evening events. Alchool misuse will be reported to the local authorities.

Allegations of behaviour that breaches the Code will be investigated by FORAMS2023 Organizing Committee that will take appropriate action.
