Code of Conduct
The organizers are committed to making this focus meeting productive and enjoyable for everyone, regardless of any aspects of identity. The SOC will make sure all participants abide by the ISC rules on non-discrimination, as well as the IAU anti-harassment policy, to help us achieve a safe and positive focus meeting for everyone.
