Member Code of Conduct Policy
To help maintain an open and respectful community of scientists, ISAR does not tolerate illegal or inappropriate behavior at any conference site, including violations of any and all applicable laws. ISAR condemns inappropriate or suggestive acts or comments that demean another person by reason of their gender, gender identity or expression, religion, ethnicity, culture, age, or disability, or that are unwelcome or offensive to other members of the community or their guests. ISAR reviews allegations of any such behavior on a case-by-case basis, and violations may result in suspension or expulsion from the Society. Past behavior, including previous or repeated violations of this policy, shall be considered when determining whether a member shall be disciplined, or its membership suspended or revoked.
At all times, in particular at Society organized or sponsored events, all members of the Society shall maintain appropriate scientific and personal conduct, and all interactions between Society members shall be conducted in a respectful manner to all individuals.
ISAR encourages open and honest intellectual debate as part of a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere at every conference. ISAR asks all attendees to foster rigorous analysis of all science presented or discussed in a manner respectful to all conferees. ISAR and each of its members shall respect each individual’s wishes to engage or not engage in any scientific discussion, exchange, or advocacy, and shall not attempt to coerce any person or groups of persons into any action. As such, members should be mindful if others ask to leave a discussion.
