About ASTRO

ASTRO Event Code of Conduct

ASTRO is committed to providing a professional, collegial, safe and respectful environment for all aspects of the Annual Meeting. Attendees agree that they will conduct themselves professionally and comply with all applicable laws, regulations and rules, as well as these Attendee Policies. Attendees may not engage in any demonstrations or other behavior that ASTRO deems potentially disruptive to the conduct of the meeting or that infringes on the rights or safety of others.

All attendees must always adhere to the ASTRO Event Code of Conduct which states:

“ASTRO’s culture and Code of Conduct is based on trust, mutual respect and high standards of professional conduct and ethics. We rely on the good judgment of our members, attendees and staff to comply with the law and act with integrity in all situations. We have zero tolerance for sexual or any other type of harassment or unprofessional conduct in the workplace or at any ASTRO event.

All participants in ASTRO events – both in person and virtual – are expected to show respect for and honor the dignity of all individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, age, religion, ability, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, or personal characteristics. ASTRO encourages members or attendees to identify and report to the proper authorities any colleague who engages in inappropriate, unprofessional or unsafe activities.”

Violations of the ASTRO Event Code of Conduct are determined by ASTRO in its sole discretion and any participants violating these rules may be subject to: expulsion from the Annual Meeting without obligation on the part of ASTRO to refund any fees, ineligibility for attendance at future ASTRO Meetings, possible referral to appropriate authorities, and other consequences at the discretion of ASTRO. Any person who is dismissed from the meeting may request that ASTRO review the matter, provided, however, that the individual understands that such dismissal will be effective immediately and will continue until and unless ASTRO issues an updated decision that would allow participation, subject to any conditions prescribed.

If you have any concerns about conduct at an ASTRO event, please seek ASTRO support at the ASTRO Resource Center (when available), the registration desk or email us at conduct@astro.org.
