IUPAP Policies

ICRC2023 is one of international conferences sponsored by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). We implement the following IUPAP policies. Please also see http://iupap.org/sponsored-conferences/conference-policies/.

Free Circulation of Scientists

The principle of the Universality of Science is fundamental to scientific progress. This principle embodies freedom of movement, association, expression and communication for scientists, as well as equitable access to data, information and research materials.

In pursuing its objectives with respect to the rights and responsibilities of scientists, we actively uphold this principle, and, in doing so, we oppose any discrimination. Participation at this conference is open to all nationalities, religions, genders, political views, ages or any other factors. We explicitly encourage a varied and diverse participation.

Harassment at Conferences

It is the policy of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) that all participants in Union activities will enjoy an environment which encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas, and is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. The conference organisers will name an advisor who will consult with those who have suffered from harassment and who will suggest ways of redressing their problems, and an advisor who will counsel those accused of harassment. The conference organisers may, after due consideration, take such action they deem appropriate.

ICRC2023 Code of Conduct

Our mission is to offer on-site and on-line conference environments to report and discuss new results of fundamental research in astroparticle physics from the past two years. The environment should be safe and comfortable for all participants. We expect participants to follow basic standards of respectful and professional behavior towards all other participants, irrespective of nationality, religion, gender, political views or age. Be mindful of cultural sensitivities of other participants. Participants are to follow good scientific practice and adhere to the common standards of publication ethics. They should refrain from any sort of abusive language or behavior that could be interpreted as harassment.

We endorse the IUPAP policy statements on Harassment at conferences quoated in the previous section.


Complaints or breaches at the ICRC2023 can be reported to our ombudspersons. Together with the conference organisers, they will react swiftly and appropriately.
