Starting from this year, the data management community starts an integrated effort for Diversity and Inclusion initiatives. This initiative is in collaboration with VLDB DBCares following the ACM policy against harassment and processes for reporting unacceptable behavior. More information can be found in the following, dedicated web site: https://dbdni.github.io/.
Our code of conduct can be found here. Our goal is to promote a positive, diverse, and inclusive environment within the data management community, creating the grounds to foster professional growth, facilitate networking, and maintain productive professional relationships among our members, regardless of age, gender identity, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, country of origin, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability, education, and work experience. We expect all our members to strive to abide with and help promote these guidelines.
If you have any comments, questions, suggestions, or complaints, please email the ICDE Diversity and Inclusion Chairs: Georgia Koutrika (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Victor Zakhary (email@example.com).
