SEDI symposiums are open and can be attended by anyone interested in the science related to the interior of the Earth and planets.  SEDI is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all meeting participants conducive to productive scientific exchanges.  All participants of the meetings, including session chairs, speakers, poster presenters and all other attendants are expected to abide to the following guidelines which constitute the meeting's code of conduct:

  • Meeting participants are expected to communicate with one another in an open, considerate, mindful, respectful and collaborative manner
  • Diversity of views and opinions should focus on ideas rather than attacks on individuals or groups
  • Meeting participants are expected to follow the rules and policies of the meeting venue, accommodations, and field trip locations
  • Meeting participants are expected to be mindful of their surroundings

Reported unacceptable behaviour by participants will lead to action by the SEDI meeting organisers and/or SEDI officers, which may include immediate removal from the meeting without warning or refund. Examples of unacceptable behaviour include physical and verbal abuse of any form.  These include, but are not limited to, verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, national origin; harassment, bullying, intimidation, or discrimination in any form; inappropriate use of sexual images in public spaces or in presentations; or threatening or stalking any meeting participants.
