The organisers ask that all attendees, presenters and members of the conference bear the following principles in mind:
- ICE-5 will not tolerate harassment in any form, including (but not limited to) on the basis of race, ethnicity, language background, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, body size, or religion. Attendees who violate this policy will be asked to leave immediately.
- We ask attendees to be respectful of one another. This includes respecting others’ perspectives (linguistic or otherwise) time, and effort. Please act in good faith and approach each interaction with another attendee as a chance to learn something.
- Due to the theme of this year’s conference Real- World Issues there may be content that is sensitive, challenging or emotional for attendees. Take note of this and be mindful of others at all times.
- We will prioritize the contributions of scholars who are historically marginalized. This includes scholars who have been marginalized due to race, gender, disability, etc., and it also includes scholars who may feel “on the margins” of a conference because of their junior status. We ask that attendees who frequently contribute to discussion allow for attendees who may have been pushed to the margins to have the chance to be heard.
- On the days of the conference, screenshots are likely to be taken by attendees/presenters, so if anyone attending does not wish to have their face visible in any screenshot please keep your camera off. There will be no recording of presentations or workshops during the conference as it is not permitted by the organisers following the UK GDPR principles.
- We are all living through a pandemic, located in different time zones, often working from home in uncomfortable chairs, occasionally with children in our laps, sometimes taking on new responsibilities. We ask that attendees show patience and kindness to one another in these extraordinary times.
