On-site Behavior

In order to preserve a climate that encourages both civil and fruitful dialogue, in a safe and welcoming environment, we encourage anyone who witnesses or hears of unacceptable behavior to report it to an ASE Staff Member immediately.  ASE reserves the right to suspend or terminate access for anyone who violate these rules.

  1. Adhere to a policy of zero-tolerance for any form of harassment, intimidation or discrimination.
  2. Be respectful in the way you communicate with others. Be tolerant of other’s viewpoints. The discussions and comments are meant to stimulate conversation, not to create contention. Let others have their say, just as you may.
  3. All defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials are strictly prohibited.
  4. Disruption of presentations during sessions, in the exhibit hall, or at other events organized by ASE or its affiliates will be considered unacceptable behavior and dealt with immediately. All participants must comply with the instructions of the moderator and any ASE Staff Member or designated personnel.
  5. Participants should not take screen shots or record video of any of the lectures.
  6. Do not post anything in chat boxes, ASE Connect, or on social media that you would not want the world to see or that you would not want anyone to know came from you.
  7. ASE reserves the right to reject/delete any messaging, posting and/or presentation for any reason.
