IEEE Event Safety and Conduct Statement
The IEEE Conferences Committee has introduced the IEEE Event Safety and Conduct statement (shown below), which reflects the positive values and behaviors espoused by IEEE and extends these values to the events community.

“IEEE believes in openness, international collaboration, and the free flow of talent and ideas. Meetings, conferences, and other events provide a forum for the exchange of those technical and humanitarian conversations. IEEE is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment to all conference, event, and meeting participants who engage with IEEE in these conversations.

To support this concept, IEEE has created a conduct and safety statement (PDF, 134 KB) that will become the IEEE credo for conferences, events, and meetings.

Participants should report any behavior inconsistent with the principles outlined here to on-site staff, security, or venue personnel, or to eventconduct@ieee.org.”
