Code of Conduct for FIE Events

It is the policy of Frontiers in Education (FIE) that all participants, including attendees, vendors, FIE staff, volunteers, and all other stakeholders at FIE events and co-sponsored events will conduct themselves in a professional manner that is welcoming to all participants and free from any form of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. Participants will treat each other with respect and consideration to create a collegial, inclusive, and professional environment at FIE events. Creating a supportive environment to enable effective scholarly discourse at FIE meetings is the responsibility of all participants.

Participants will avoid any inappropriate actions or statements based on individual characteristics such as age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, nationality, political affiliation, ability status, educational background, or any other characteristic. 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, the viewing or display of images that could be offensive, photography without permission, and stalking.

Violations of this code of conduct policy should be reported to conference and event organizers, FIE staff, or and member of the FIE Steering or Program Committees. Sanctions may range from verbal warning, to ejection from the meeting without refund, to notifying appropriate authorities. Retaliation against someone who made a complaint of inappropriate conduct is inappropriate conduct, independent of the veracity of the original complaint. Making a false complaint of inappropriate conduct is also inappropriate conduct.

 

Code of Conduct for IEEE Events

 

IEEE believes that science, technology, and engineering are fundamental human activities, for which openness, international collaboration, and the free flow of talent and ideas are essential. Its meetings, conferences, and other events seek to enable engaging, thoughtprovoking conversations that support IEEE’s core mission of advancing technology for humanity. Accordingly, IEEE is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment to all participants, including staff and vendors, at IEEE-related events.

 

IEEE has no tolerance for discrimination, harassment, or bullying in any form at IEEE-related events. All participants have the right to pursue shared interests without harassment or discrimination in an environment that supports diversity and inclusion. Participants are expected to adhere to these principles and respect the rights of others.

 

IEEE seeks to provide a secure environment at its events. Participants should report any behavior inconsistent with the principles outlined here, to on site staff, security or venue personnel, or to eventconduct@ieee.org.
