SLE 2020
Sun 15 - Fri 20 November 2020 Online Conference
co-located with SPLASH 2020

Privacy: Talks and some clearly marked events will be recorded and shared by the organizers for public consumption. For privacy reasons, recording, screenshotting or retransmission of video streams from the conference platform is not allowed. Textual communications on conference-provided channels are also private.

Names: Attendees must use their professional names and affiliations for registration and all conference activities. Special circumstances may be discussed with the general chair.

Anti-harassment and non-discrimination: The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to the aims and goals of SIGPLAN; these require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group, that fosters dignity, understanding, and mutual respect, and that embraces diversity. SIGPLAN is dedicated to providing a harassment- and discriminatioon-free conference. In particular, attendees and organisers must abide by the ACM Policy Against Discrimination and Harassment. We expect all the participants to use welcoming and inclusive language, to be respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences, to gracefully accept constructive criticism, to focus on what is best for the community, and to show empathy towards other community members. There is no tolerance for unwelcome, hostile, or disruptive behaviour or speech that intimidates, creates discomfort, or interferes with a person’s participation or opportunity for participation at the conference and all associated events. Conference participants violating these standards may be expelled from this and future conferences.

Getting help:

  1. If you are unsure about what to do and want to talk in confidence with a friendly representative of SIGPLAN’s Committee to Aid REporting (CARES) contact Shriram Kishnamurthi (shriram@gmail.com), Peng Wu (peng.wu@futurewei.com), and Kathryn McKinley (mckinley@cs.utexas.edu). Discussions with CARES are strictly off the record and advisory in nature.

  2. If you witness or are subject to unacceptable behavior, file an official report at conduct@splashcon.org, who will take appropriate action and report the incident to ACM if necessary.
