VCBM is an inclusive and harassment-free workshop that welcomes participants of all gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race or religion. A respectful communication is vital for a healthy exchange of ideas and thoughts. VCBM does not tolerate harassment in any form. Behaviors such as exclusion, intimidation, use of abusive or degrading language, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, and all other forms of harassment will face consequences.
Anyone who experiences, observes, or has knowledge of such behavior is requested to immediately report the incident to the Ombuds team. The reports and all information will be kept confidential. Even in case a public response is deemed necessary, the identity of victims and reports will remain confidential, unless those individuals consent otherwise.
Please contact Ombuds team if you experience, observe, or have knowledge of behavior in violation of the Code of Conduct.
The Ombuds team for VCBM is:
- Ingrid Hotz (Linköping University, Sweden)
- Johanna Beyer (Harvard University, USA)
