Participants may use handheld cameras and/or smart phones at the event to take photographs and videos/films for personal, non-commercial use, provided the act of so doing is not disruptive, intrusive or in breach of intellectual property or privacy rights and provided that the subject of such photography and videography/filming consents. Such photographs and videos/films may not be published, sold, reproduced, transmitted, distributed or otherwise commercially exploited in any manner whatsoever.

All participants should treat each other with respect and consideration. Personal attacks directed toward other participants, harassment, intimidation, or discrimination in any form will not be tolerated. Disruption of oral presentations will also not be tolerated.

Examples of unacceptable conduct include, but are not limited to, verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, national origin, inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in online meetings or in presentations, or threatening or stalking any participant.

Consequences for Violating the Code of Conduct: Anyone requested to cease unacceptable behaviour will be expected to comply immediately. The AANSS 2022 organisers may take any action deemed necessary and appropriate, including immediate removal from the symposium. Symposium organisers may also prohibit attendance by anyone violating this code of conduct at any future meetings.
