We aim for this meeting to be a friendly, collaborative, and welcoming event. We hope discussions will be wide-ranging and constructive. Disagreements are a part of science, but disrespectful conduct is not acceptable. We refer you to the SMBE code of conduct:

Behavior that undermines the integrity of intellectual discourse is an impediment to scientific progress and will not be tolerated. Unacceptable treatment of others includes (but is not limited to) harassment, stalking, belittling, discrimination, bullying/intimidation, assault, trolling, and retaliation. Any misconduct on the basis of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, physical appearance, race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, or other descriptive category will not be tolerated.” https://www.smbe.org/smbe/ABOUT/CodeofConduct.aspx
