This repository collects the guideliness to run more inclusive and diverse conferences, using the ACM Recommender Systems conferences as an example
How to use the repository:
- Have the code of conduct on the main page of the conference (see example from RecSys2018)
- Have an email address that people can write to in case the code of conduct is not followed.
- Go through the event-planning list with the conference organizers and think about what can you do, what can't you do. If any of the things you can not do might be a problem for some people, be transparent about why you are not able to acomodate people's needs.
- Share with the people presenting the two guidelines for presentations: accessible presentations and the inclusive language in presentations. Make sure people are aware that they should follow these guideliness.
