Code of Conduct

HHAI 2024 is organized as a forum to encourage rich interactions and promote the free exchange of ideas to benefit the community. HHAI 2024 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 any other events related to the main conference.

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 2024 disapproves of offensive or aggressive acts, or comments that intimidate or disparage others.

HHAI 2024 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 2024 expects all community members to endorse this code of conduct, and to actively prevent and discourage any undesirable behavior. Everyone should feel empowered to politely engage when they 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 2024 organizing committee, who are committed to treat such reports confidentially.

Those violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the HHAI 2024 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.

This code of conduct is modelled after the code of conduct of ISWC 2022
