Code of Conduct

IEEE Computer Society Code of Conduct

The IEEE Computer Society takes allegations of misconduct at conferences seriously and does not tolerate unprofessional behavior including, but not limited to, harassment, discrimination, and bullying. Principles of expected conference conduct can be found in the IEEE Computer Society Open Conference Statement, the IEEE Event Conduct and Safety Statement, and the IEEE Code of Ethics.

Conduct violations at IEEE Computer Society conferences that require onsite action should be reported to the conference chair, onsite Computer Society staff or Computer Society staff will coordinate if needed with the IEEE Event Emergency Response Team.

In the event of an emergency, onsite security and local law enforcement authorities should be contacted immediately.

The IEEE Ethics Reporting Line is available for reporting conduct issues confidentially for further investigation. Reports can be submitted anonymously and are administered through an Independent Third Party. The Ethics Reporting Line is available at +1 888 359 6323 or by submitting an online report*. To learn more about the IEEE Ethics Reporting Line, please see the FAQ.

*Please note that when completing the form for an incident at a conference, โ€œmanagementโ€ refers to the conference volunteer leadership and if you do not know the name of the person you are reporting, you may refer to the conference organizers who may be able to provide additional details.
