Code of Conduct

HHAI 2022 is organized as a forum to encourage rich interactions and promote the free exchange of ideas to benefit the community. HHAI 2022 welcomes conference participants that foster inclusion and respect to all members of the community.

We are dedicated to providing a respectful and inclusive conference experience for everyone. Respectful behavior is always assumed and expected of community members during all conference events, on-line discussions about conference topics, and networking events held after hours.                       

Conference participants are expected to interact with others in a respectful and courteous manner, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender presentation, physical appearance, religious affiliation, creed, marital status, differing abilities, medical conditions, personal characteristics, or technology choices.

Abusive, racist, sexist, homophobic, intimidating, harassing, or threatening behavior towards any other conference participant or directed at any organizer, student volunteer, sponsor, conference staff or locals, will not be tolerated. HHAI 2022 disapproves of offensive actions, aggressive acts, or comments that intimidate or disparage others.

HHAI 2022 will not tolerate any kind of harassment, including but not limited to:

  • Verbal attacks, accusations, bullying, or offensive comments
  • Aggressive or intimidatory questioning
  • Sustained disruption during presentations and other events
  • Unwelcome sexual attention
  • Inappropriate physical contact
  • Deliberate intimidation or stalking both in person and on-line
  • Sexual and racist images and materials in public spaces
  • Ignoring, encouraging, or advocating any of the above behaviors

HHAI 2022 expects all community members to endorse this code of conduct, and to actively prevent and discourage any undesired behaviors. Everyone should feel empowered to politely engage when themselves or others are disrespected, and to raise awareness and understanding of this code of conduct.

Conference participants asked to stop any unacceptable behavior are expected to comply immediately. To report any behavior that makes you or others uncomfortable please contact (by email or in person) any of the members of the HHAI 2022 organizing committee, who are committed to treat such reports confidentially. In addition, you can contact a special representative of the Department of Computer Science of the VU Amsterdam for social safety, should you require support that is more independent of the conference organization. 

Those violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the HHAI 2022 organizing committee. Sponsors are also subject to code of conduct in events, images, and other materials. This code of conduct complements all legal rights that apply to particular situations.
