Archaeological practice and society in the Mediterranean


Happy with the success of last festivalCHAT, we will follow their guidelines here too. The whole philosophy of this event is to encourage participation with the fewer barriers possible, and so we want to promote an environment of equality in participation and respect.

We work actively against behavior that creates a hostile or intimidating environment.

We promote an inclusive environment aimed at fostering discussion and exchange of ideas, which promotes diversity and rejects prejudice of any kind.

We reject any action, language or attempts to belittle or undermine other people or their opinions.

We do not accept bullying, harassment or abuse of any kind, including offensive comments and disruptive behavior.

We do not tolerate discrimination of any groups or people, as long and everyone is being respectful and follows these basic rules.

We expect everyone involved in the events of this conference to follow ALLEA’s The European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity.

We promote a flat (i.e., non-hierarchical) environment where all opinions and people will be respected, irrespective of an individual’s position within the academic or professional hierarchy.

In sum, be aware of the diversity and challenges around, and treat others as you would like them to treat you. We will experiment with a multilingual environment where the vast majority of participants will not be native English-speakers, so let’s be inclusive and promote a friendly and engaging environment that brings the best out of everyone. Take the lead and act. From the organizing team we will keep an eye and do our best, but at the end the success of the conference is on us all.

Together, we can make the best out of this!
