Equity Policy and Code of Conduct
The Australian Society for Biophysics http://www.biophysics.org.au (ASB) strives to achieve balance across gender, geography and experience in all aspects of their annual meeting. The ASB executive council endeavours to achieve this balance through equal female and male representation on the local organizing committees and session chairs as well as through invitation of high-quality male and female speakers and the selection of speakers from the submitted abstracts from across Australia in line with the gender balance in our research community.
As part of this gender equity policy the ASB will use data collected during registration and abstract submission and data from the conference program to determine the gender balance at our annual meetings. The statistics will be available on the ASB website: http://www.biophysics.org.au
The organisers are committed to making this meeting productive and enjoyable for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality or religion. We will not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Please see our Code of Conduct for further details.
