Code of Conduct
Welcome to ISQIP 2019! We are the coordinators and delegates of the IEEE Student Quality Improvement Programme, hosted by IEEE Student Branch Chapter College of Engineering Chengannur. We are a peer group of tech enthusiasts, joining hands for this programme to seek out more knowledge from competent mentors and to spread out our knowledge to yearning members. We strive to strengthen the collaborative culture among the young minds. This is a platform for all aspiring individuals who are keen to share their knowledge for the community.
ISQIP is a platform which connects different individuals under the shared passion and interest for acquiring more skills in the various fields. Whenever you talk, post or reply, there are other people hearing you or sitting behind the screen reading what you say. These other people have thoughts, ideas, dreams, aspirations, troubles, advice, perspectives, feelings, and experiences, just like you. You'll probably end up meeting a lot of them and sharing your interests when you participate in the Hackathon, at the end of ISQIP 2019. Everyone in this group and people you meet through the programme, are a potential new friend - treat them that way.
This document aims to make ISQIP as a forum for everyone to feel welcome. The rules, guidelines, and code of conduct that follow apply to all the members, volunteers and participants. This isn't an exhaustive list of things that you can't do. Rather, take it in the spirit in which it's intended — a guide to make it easier to be excellent to each other. We expect it to be followed in spirit as much as in the letter.
Any decision you take will affect other members and colleagues, and you should take those consequences into account when making decisions. Try to make decisions that are as inclusive as possible.
Not all of us will agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behavior and poor manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack. It's important to remember that a technical community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one. We expect members of the programme to be respectful when communicating with other members.
What we produce is a complex whole made of many parts, it is the sum of many dreams. Collaboration between teams that each have their own goal and vision is essential; for the whole to be more than the sum of its parts, each part must make an effort to understand the whole. Collaboration reduces redundancy and improves the quality of our work.
Be nice and do not harass others
Everyone in this programme should feel welcome, regardless of their background. Please be courteous, respectful and polite to fellow community members. Any complaints regarding any of the following will be taken seriously and may result in removing from the event.

- If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the core organizing committee, whose contact details are given below at the end of this document.
- Organizers will be happy to help participants/members contact security or local law enforcement, provide escorts to an alternate location, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the meetup. We value your attendance.
We expect participants to follow these rules at our all of our event venues and event-related social events.
Clear communication can help to avoid misunderstandings, Having context is important. It's better to ask for clarification than to make assumptions. Disagreements, social and technical, are normal, but we expect members in the community to resolve disagreements constructively — so please avoid trolling, personal attacks, and repetitive arguments.
Any promotions which are not directly affiliated to the programme should be completely avoided. If found continuing even after asked to stop, may result in removal from the event. All the members/organizers/sponsors/participants shall ask permission with concerned people mentioned at the end of the document to carry-out any promotions within the discussion rooms or events.
When we disagree, try to understand why.
Disagreements, both social and technical, happen all the time. It is important that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively. Remember that we’re different. The strength of the programme comes from its varied community, people from a wide range of backgrounds. Different people have different perspectives on issues. Being unable to understand why someone holds a viewpoint doesn’t mean that they’re wrong. Focus on helping to resolve issues and learning from mistakes. It is important that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively and with the help of the community and community processes.When our goals differ dramatically, we encourage the creation of alternative implementations, so that the community can test new ideas and contribute to the discussion.
Go by This
If any member is unwilling to abide by this Code of Conduct or breaks it, he/she shall be removed from their current activity. The person will be removed from the event and will not be allowed to participate or contribute to any further activity whatever his designation be.
