Code of conduct

The InterChall conference aims to provide an enriching and harassment-free scientific experience for all attendees. Those attending, exhibiting, sponsoring, or volunteering at InterChall must agree to this code of conduct. The organizing committee will enforce these rules throughout the event. We expect cooperation to ensure a safe environment for everyone during the talks, poster sessions, and social events.

Harassment is defined as offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity or religion, sexual imagery in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, following, sustained disruption of conversations or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwanted sexual attention.
