As with past conferences, the TPRC 2022 conference had a Standards of Conduct document all attendees were required to agree to. We believe that it’s important to share the outcome of these policies so that people in our community know that we are enforcing them and what outcomes to expect from violations.
This is an anonymized summary of the incidents reported to the SoC Committee and the committee’s response:
* A conference attendee made an inappropriate remark to a fellow attendee. The Standards of Conduct committee spoke with the reported attendee. As this was not the first such incident with the reported attendee, we gave them a final warning. Further violations of the SoC will result in a temporary ban from the conference and other TPF/RF spaces
* A group of conference attendees were playing Cards Against Humanity in a shared conference space. Conference organizers spoke to the group and asked them to move the game to a private space; the attendees chose to end the game.
