VALA Code of Conduct

VALA seeks to provide a respectful and safe environment in which diverse participants may learn from, challenge, network with and share the company of colleagues. We recognise a shared responsibility to create and sustain that environment and do not tolerate harassment in any form.  

VALA will have Duty Officers assigned at all times during the VALA2018 Conference, and will not tolerate behaviour that makes attendees feel unsafe, intimidated, discriminated against, harassed, or bullied. The Code of Conduct applies in all VALA2018 Conference spaces including the exhibition , during Conference sessions, associated social events, and online. Ask for permission before posting quotes or photographs of other people on social media.

Please ensure you have read and understood the Code of Conduct before you arrive, and do not hesitate to contact the VALA Secretariat or Duty Officers should you have any questions or concerns.

Privacy Statement

Australia introduced the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 in 2001. The Conference Managers comply with such legislation which is designed to protect the right of the individual to privacy of their information. Information collected in respect of proposed participation in any aspect of the Conference will only be used for the purposes of planning and conduct of the Conference and may also be provided to the organising body or to organisers of future events. It is also usual to produce a ‘Delegate List’ of attendees at the Conference and to include the individual’s details in such a list. Consent for publication of the individual’s information may be withheld when completing the registration form for the Conference. Individuals are also entitled to access the information.

Insurance

Delegates are strongly advised to secure appropriate travel and health insurance. Delegate registration fees do not provide any such insurance coverage. The Organising Committee and the Conference Office accept no responsibility for any loss in this regard.

Photography and Video Recording

By registering, participants acknowledge and consent that during their attendance at VALA2018 their image or voice may be recorded via video, photograph or by any other means (“recorded”) by an officer or official of VALA2018 which may be distributed or published at the discretion of the Organisers of VALA2018. If you do not wish to be recorded, you are required to indicate this during the registration process. You are encouraged to remove yourself from situations where filming is obviously underway.
