The approved resolution:
We endorse the recommendations of the ad-hoc committee to combat harassment and discrimination. In particular, we authorize and instruct TCMF chair to take the following steps:
- Join the consortium of conferences and the program of ToC advocates, including contribution of resources as needed.
- Adapt and adopt recommended procedures regarding a code of conduct and author-declared conflicts of interest.
- As feasible, use FOCS to promote educational materials on these issues to the ToC community.
- Coordinate these steps with IEEE administration and its legal department.
