Ethics and Anti-harassment statement

The EAS considers its annual EWASS meetings to be a privileged occasion for free and frank interchange of scientific ideas, as well as for the nurturing and creation of professional and social contacts. Any abuse of power or inappropriate behaviour has no place at the EWASS.

On 23 January 2018, EAS Council has adopted the EAS Ethics Statement and Guidelines for Good Practice. These will apply during EWASS and all participants are urged to read the document and follow its recommendations.

The RAS kindly requests that all of its meeting attendees, including those at EWASS 2018, adhere to the Code of Conduct for RAS meetings.
