FOCS Code of Conduct

The FOCS steering committee is committed to an inclusive conference experience, respectful of all participants, and free of discrimination, harassment, bullying, or retaliation. We believe that an inclusive and respectful atmosphere is vital to free expression and the open exchange of ideas, serving the main purpose of the conference. FOCS 2018 will implement the IEEE Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct, and in particular the IEEE Policy against Discrimination and Harassment.

If you experience or witness discrimination, harassment or other unethical behavior at the conference, we encourage you to report this promptly to IEEE TCMF chair and FOCS 2018 general chair Yuval Rabani, or to any FOCS steering committee member, or to the IEEE Compliance Helpline. Sanctions against violators may include expulsion from IEEE membership and exclusion from IEEE events.
