SIGLOG Conference Anti-Harassment Policy

The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to the values and goals of SIGLOG. They require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group. They flourish in communities that foster mutual understanding and embrace diversity. For these reasons, SIGLOG is committed to providing a harassment-free conference experience, and all the events held in cooperation or sponsored by SIGLOG must implement the ACM code of conduct or a similar policy.

Participants violating these standards may be sanctioned or expelled from the meeting, at the discretion of the conference organizers. Conference organizers are requested to report serious incidents to the SIGLOG Chair (chair@siglog.org) and Conference Committee (conferences@siglog.org).

A useful resource is the Geek Feminism Wiki, which includes models for public announcements and guidance for conference staff.
