  • Ethics and Anti-harassment Statement - The organisers consider this symposium to be a privileged opportunity for free and active exchanges of scientific ideas, as well as for the nurturing and creation of professional and social contacts. Any abuse of power or inappropriate behaviour has no place at this symposium. We specifically refer to the NINS Researcher Code of Conduct (, which will apply during the symposium. By registering for this symposium, all participants confirm that they have read the documents and that they will follow its recommendations.
  • Maunakea Site Acknowledgement - We wish to recognize and acknowledge the very significant cultural role and reverence that the summit of Maunakea has always had within the indigenous Hawaiian community. We are most fortunate to have the opportunity to conduct observations from this mountain. (Please see also a summary of activities by Maunakea Observatories.)
