Code of Conduct
This external code of conduct for XSEDE sponsored events represents XSEDE's commitment to providing an inclusive and harassment-free environment in all interactions regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, or religion. The code of conduct below extends all XSEDE-sponsored events, services, and interactions.
XSEDE is committed to providing an inclusive and harassment-free environment in all interactions regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, or religion. This commitment extends to all XSEDE-sponsored events and services (in-person training, webinars, committee meetings, networking functions, online forums, chat rooms, and social media) and any interaction including staff-to- participant, participant-to- participant, and participant-to- staff. Participants are all individuals who are not XSEDE staff who attend and participate including but not limited to administrators, faculty, students, researchers, and research computing professionals. As a project that aims to share ideas and freedom of thought and expression, it is essential that the interaction between participants, users of XSEDE services, and XSEDE staff take place in an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person by being respectful of all. The XSEDE project does not tolerate harassment in any form. Harassment is any form of behavior intended to exclude, intimidate, or cause discomfort. Harassment includes, but is not limited to, the use of abusive or degrading language, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. All XSEDE users, participants, and staff are governed by their organization's code of conduct or sexual harassment policies.
Anyone who experiences, observes, or has knowledge of threatening behavior are expected to immediately report the incident to a member of the event organizing committee, XSEDE staff, or one of the XSEDE Ombudspersons listed below, or by using the online form (coming soon). XSEDE reserves the right to take appropriate action.
