SIGHPC expects its members to be respectful of others, regardless of their backgrounds.
In support of this goal and ACM’s Policy Against Discrimination and Harassment, the organizers of all SIGHPC-related activities have been asked to:
- structure their committees to include diverse backgrounds and opinions
- establish rigorously fair review/selection processes to ensure there is no explicit or implicit bias against newcomers
- choose speaker lineups that include diverse representation
- track their progress in improving diversity by gathering statistics on the makeup of committees, reviewers, authors, and speakers
As of 2019, event organizers are required to report demographic data on gender, geographical, and organizational representation. SIGHPC will aggregate that data and include it in on this page in regular updates, along with similar information on SIG membership.
