The IACR is committed to providing an experience free of harassment and discrimination in its events, respecting the dignity of every participant.
If you experience harassment or discriminatory behavior at an IACR event, we encourage you to reach out to someone who could help. The following are available to you: the Code-of-Conduct Liaison, the General Chairs of CHES 2021, any member of the Ethics Committee, and the IACR President.
Special rules apply for online conferences. We require that every participant in an online conference represent themselves by the name that they use for their professional work. In addition, any speech or imagery that are posted in the chats of the various conference activities must be appropriate.
Participants who violate this code may be sanctioned and/or expelled from the event, at the discretion of the General Chair(s). Serious incidents may be referred to the Ethics Committee for further possible action. Any action will only be taken with the consent of the complaining party subject to applicable laws.
If you witness harassment or discriminatory behavior, please consider intervening.
