Code of Conduct

As a conference affiliated with the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), AIIDE encourages all attendees to familiarize themselves and follow AAAI’s code of conduct.

The AAAI conference on Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment (AIIDE) promotes research, understanding, education, funding, and responsible use of AI and game-related technology. We welcome attendees who foster inclusion and respect for all participants.

Respectful behavior is assumed and expected of community members during all conference events. Conference participants are expected to interact in a respectful and courteous manner, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender presentation, physical appearance, religious affiliation, creed, marital status, disability status, medical conditions, personal characteristics, technology choices, or any other differentiating factors.

Abusive, racist, sexist, homophobic, intimidating, harassing, or threatening behavior towards any other event participant or directed at any organizer, student volunteer, sponsor, conference staff or locals, will not be tolerated.

AIIDE will not tolerate any kind of harassment, including but not limited to:

  • Verbal attacks, accusations, bullying, or offensive comments
  • Aggressive or intimidating behavior
  • Sustained disruption during presentations and other events
  • Unwelcome sexual attention
  • Inappropriate physical contact
  • Deliberate intimidation or stalking either in person or online
  • Sexual and racist images or materials in public spaces
  • Ignoring, encouraging, or advocating any of the above behaviors

All persons, organizations and entities that attend AIIDE are subject to the standards set forth above. We expect all community members to formally endorse this code of conduct, and to actively prevent and discourage any undesired behaviors. Everyone should feel empowered to politely engage when themselves or others are disrespected, and to raise awareness and understanding of this code of conduct. AIIDE participants asked to stop their unacceptable behavior are expected to comply immediately. Sponsors are also subject to this code of conduct in their participation in AIIDE events.

All AIIDE agents and/or representatives are empowered to take necessary action to prevent and/or stop any conduct that violates this code including but not limited demanding that the violator be removed either temporarily or permanently from the conference or calling in local law enforcement officials to assist in the matter.

To report any behavior that violates this code of conduct, please immediately report it to a member of the current AIIDE organizing committee or to a AAAI representative at the conference or contact (by email or in person) the AAAI Executive Director or any AAAI Officer. Complaints will be reviewed by the AAAI subcommittee of the Executive Council, and may be referred to law enforcement when warranted. The Executive Council may take actions with respect to any of its members as the Executive Council deems appropriate including but not limited to terminating the membership of any member who violates the standards set forth in this code of conduct as outlined in Article VI, Section 6 of the AAAI Bylaws.
