Recording and Sharing Policy:*
ACR Conferences provide a forum for scholars to share unpublished work in progress that has not yet received the full scrutiny of a journal review process. Taking photos of slides or otherwise recording, duplicating, or sharing voice or visual content requires the explicit and advance permission of the presenter.
I acknowledge ACR’s recording and sharing policy.

ACR Commitment to Conference Safety and Inclusiveness
ACR reminds our members, participants, and stakeholders: Our conferences are convened for the purposes of sharing research, developing knowledge, and promoting career development for all. The harassment of others, especially those where an asymmetry of power exists (such as junior colleagues, doctoral students, or conference staff), undermines the principles of scholarship at the heart of our activities and is inconsistent with our ideals. Consequently, harassment is considered by ACR to be a serious form of professional misconduct.
The following policy statement outlines expectations for all those who attend or participate in ACR conferences. These are existing norms and standards that reflect our shared goals of mutual respect in knowledge creation within a diverse community.
All participants at ACR conferences are expected to:
- Follow the norms of professional respect that are necessary to promote the conditions for free academic interchange.
- Be proactive to speak up to stop harassment of others, if witnessed.
- Alert conference personnel if you see an occurrence of harassment, especially where asymmetries of power exist (e.g., where the harassed participant is not in an easy position to protect themselves).
Behaviors considered unacceptable can include a single intense and severe act or multiple persistent or pervasive acts that are demeaning, abusive, offensive, or create a hostile professional or workplace environment. Harassment may include unwanted sexual solicitation, physical advance, or verbal or non-verbal conduct that is sexual in nature; it may also include threatening, intimidating, or hostile acts; circulation of written or graphic material that denigrates or shows hostility toward an individual or group; epithets, slurs, or negative stereotyping based on group identity.
A central email ACR.Ombuds@gmail.com and phone number (+1 218-209-2313) has been set up with the Ombuds-team monitoring the email, phone calls, and texts during the conference.
To ensure a safe space at our conference, ACR does not accept registrations from individuals who have been found guilty of workplace harassment.
ACR may take any action to address those who violate our principles. Penalties may include verbal warning, ejection from the meeting without refund or other measures ACR deems appropriate. Retaliation for complaints of inappropriate conduct will not be tolerated. Notifying the ACR does not constitute or replace a notification to local law enforcement and all violations of the law should be reported to local law enforcement.
I agree to abide by ACR’s Standard of Conduct while participating in the ACR 2020 Conference.
I have not been found guilty of workplace harassment by any institution.
Please retain digital copies of your confirmation email and receipt.
Due to the unique and virtual nature of the conference which gives you unlimited access to the conference over an extended period, there are no refunds this year.
Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to request a hard copy of the registration form if you are unable to register online.
