Code of Conduct

The ASPP summer school benefits from a diverse community, which has grown as a friendly, welcoming and dynamic group. We expect that attendees will behave towards each other in a way that reflects the view that diversity and civility are strengths to be celebrated and fostered.

Furthermore, we believe that the school will be more productive and enjoyable for everyone if a professional atmosphere prevails, meaning that all delegates may expect to

  • be treated with courtesy, dignity, and respect;
  • be free from any form of discrimination, victimisation, harassment, or bullying, particularly but not exclusively in regards to age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion;
  • enjoy an environment free from unwelcome behaviour, inappropriate language, and unsuitable imagery.

If problems covered by this code of conduct arise, please contact an ASPP organiser directly. Any complaint will be treated confidentially and will be investigated. The ASPP organisers will do their best to resolve any conflict and preserve the welcoming character of the school. As a last resort, a participant may be requested to leave the school.
