Policy Against Harassment at ACM Activities

It is important that all conference organizers review the Policy Against Harassment at ACM Activities.

The open exchange of ideas is central to the Association for Computing Machinery’s mission. This requires an environment that embraces diversity and provides a safe, welcoming environment for all.

This policy applies to all ACM activities, including:

  • conferences, symposia, workshops, and events sponsored, co-sponsored, or in cooperation with ACM any ACM SIG or Chapter or any other ACM subunit;

  • ACM member meetings;

  • exchanges among committees or other bodies associated with ACM activities publications and communications sent through communication channels associated with ACM, including social media.

Opening Plenary Slide

ACM has created a slide for download summarizing this policy and requests that conference organizers display this on the screen at the opening session, so attendees are informed.
