Professional conferences allow us to not only present our research but also to represent UTIG to the scientific community. By definition, these events thrive based on their welcoming, respectful, inclusive, and collaborative environment that is created by all its attendees and conveners.
We, as members of the UTIG community, not only seek to uphold this code of conduct at professional meetings but also to respect other conduct codes provided by conference organizers that may apply to the hotel, meeting contracted facilities, and events surrounding the meeting such as dinners, bar visits, and professional evening events. A helpful reference resource is AGU’s meetings code of conduct.
Comprehensive guidelines for organizing inclusive scientific meetings have also been developed by 500 Women Scientists.
