Expected behaviour:

We expect all participants, speakers, and chairs to treat each other in a professional and respectful manner. Communication should be appropriate and considerate that people may come from different cultural backgrounds. We request that you use participant’s stated pronouns. Be kind to others.

Unacceptable behaviour:

The organisers of the seminar series are committed to making this accessible, productive, and enjoyable for all, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, disability, age, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality or religion. We will not tolerate harassment of participants in any form, as defined by the University of Cambridge Code of Conduct. Harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary comments or jokes, and offensive or belittling comments are unacceptable. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate.

Incident report:

If you find someone making you or someone else uncomfortable, please tell them so if this is appropriate/feasible, or contact the organisers as soon as possible. The organisers are committed to addressing and resolving any matters. 


If an incident has been reported to the organisers concerning a participant or speaker, they reserve the right to take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the person in question or asking them to leave the event. Further action may be taken depending on the nature and severity of the incident.
