Our Commitment

The American Physiological Society (APS) is committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, religion, national origin or other protected characteristics. We expect all conference attendees, media, speakers, volunteers, organizers, venue staff, guests and exhibitors to help us ensure a safe and positive conference experience for everyone.

The APS Conference Code of Conduct provides information on expectations for respectful interactions, behaviors that are unacceptable and consequences for unacceptable behavior, and what to do if you witness or experience conduct that violates the code

To report a violation of the Code of Conduct, we encourage you to use this hotline, hosted by EthicsPoint, a third-party provider. EthicsPoint will send the information you provide to APS. In keeping with policies on member conduct, the Society will investigate reports of misconduct that are directly connected to the Society’s programs or sponsored events. Anonymous reports of misconduct will be reviewed, recorded and investigated at the Society's discretion. For more information on what constitutes unacceptable behavior, what are the consequences of unacceptable behavior, see APS Attendee Policies.

You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.

See the EthicsPoint FAQs for more information.
