The UMS values diversity and inclusion. Regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, geographic background, religion, political ideology, language, or culture, we expect all members of this conference to contribute to a respectful, welcoming, and inclusive environment for every other participant. Be mindful of different cultural and linguistic backgrounds, as well as different political ideologies and religious beliefs.
Any instance of a participant not adhering to this standard should be reported to one of the organizers. Those who do not adhere will be removed from the symposium without the possibility of appeal.
Use good judgment when composing your written responses. Swearing and profanity is not allowed. Also consider that slang terms can be misunderstood or misinterpreted.
Be careful using all capital letters when composing your written responses. This can be considered shouting on the Internet and is regarded as impolite or aggressive. It can also be stressful on the eye when trying to read your message.
Be respectful of others views and opinions.
Be careful when using acronyms. If you use an acronym it is best to spell out its meaning first, then put the acronym in parentheses afterward, for example: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). After that you can use the acronym freely throughout your message.
