The organisers of ECSSC2024 are committed to providing a conference that is welcoming and safe for all participants, is free from discrimination and harassment, and where all participants are treated with dignity and respect. Harassment is unlawful under both federal and all Australian state anti-discrimination laws, and relevant New Zealand laws, and as such, people suspected of such misconduct may be reported to authorities. Adherence to this Code of Conduct is a requirement for all conference participants and sponsors, and covers all aspects of this conference, including (but not limited to) conference sessions and breaks, and all communication, including that via email or social media (including but not limited to the conference Slack workspace, as well as Facebook and X/Twitter) associated with ECSSC2024.

Violations may be reported to the individual’s employer or research funders. Statistical Society of Australia members may have their membership cancelled without refund of membership fees, in accordance with the Society’s Code of Conduct, available at

All efforts will be made to protect the anonymity of persons reporting violations. Persons reporting violations of the Code may request that their report remain confidential and that no further action be taken.
