The International Neuroethics Society ("INS") is committed to providing safe and productive meetings that foster open dialogue and the exchange of scientific ideas, promote equal opportunities and treatment for all participants, and is free of harassment and discrimination. All participants are expected to treat others with respect and consideration. Speakers are expected to uphold standards of scientific integrity and professional ethics. This includes notifying INS staff in advance of the meeting about any possible conflicts of interest.

The INS does not sponsor or endorse the information shared or presented in the virtual environment, including any products or services. Any information presented during this event should not be recorded or published without the explicit written permission of the content owner. The INS expects that all attendees will request of the presenter or exhibitor any use of a presentation as a matter of scientific and professional courtesy. Should there be an allegation of noncompliance with this policy at an INS event, the INS will refer all reports or violations to the attendee’s organization for review and handling.

This virtual event is dedicated to providing a pleasant experience for all attendees, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, or religion (or lack thereof). The meeting organizers will not tolerate the harassment of attendees in any form. Inappropriate language and imagery will not be accepted in any of the virtual event spaces, including the presentation hall, poster hall, exhibit hall, networking lounge, public chats, and social media. Any attendees violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the virtual event at the discretion of the meeting organizers.

This policy applies to all INS meeting-related activities, including those sponsored by INS or those held in conjunction with INS events, on public or private platforms.
