Code of Conduct
The Cognitive Science Society (CSS) annually holds a professional conference dedicated to dissemination of research results and exchange of ideas in cognitive science, open to all. CSS is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. Our Society is dedicated to diversity, equity, inclusion, and the free expression of ideas. We seek to provide an environment in which diverse participants may learn, network, and enjoy the company of colleagues. We recognize a shared responsibility to create and sustain that environment for the benefit of all. Therefore, all forms of harassment are prohibited. Specific prohibited behaviors include but are not limited to the following:
- Harassment or intimidation based on gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, political orientation and views, religion (or lack thereof), or other group status
- Unwelcome behavior or verbal comments related to the above categories that create a hostile conference environment (e.g., sexist or racist jokes)
- Sexual harassment or intimidation, including unwelcome sexual attention
- Unwelcome physical contact
- Harassing photography or recording
- Stalking or following (physical or virtual)
- Sustained disruption or threatening of presenters
- Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior
We ask that speakers carefully consider and maintain awareness of the variety of perceptions that conference participants may experience from language, images, and sound. We also ask that all conference participants make every effort to frame discussions as openly and inclusively as possible.
This code of conduct is not intended to limit the terms of open and respectful scientific inquiry or discussion. Critical examination, debate, and robust disagreement regarding beliefs and viewpoints, germane to the topic of discussion and presented respectfully do not, in themselves, constitute harassment. Similarly, the use of imagery, language, or sound that is sexual or that pertains to group status and that is germane to the topic of discussion and presented respectfully does not, in itself constitute harassment.
We expect participants to follow this code of conduct at all event venues and event-related social activities.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, event organizers retain the right to take any actions to keep the event a welcoming environment for all participants. These actions may range from simply warning the offender to expulsion from the conference, with no refund of registration or other attendance-related costs.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please report it to us immediately. We value your attendance, and will make every effort to ensure that you feel safe and welcome for the full duration of the conference.
You can make a report by directly emailing your report to . Any reports made by form or by email will be accessible by the Governing-Board authorized Code of Conduct implementation team, which is comprised of Adele Goldberg, Roger Levy, Asifa Majid, Nora Newcombe and Kenny Smith. You may also make a report in person to a member of this team.
