Arisia has a process to address issues that arise during the convention.

Persons directly impacted by the incident and witnesses (attendees, staff, volunteers, guests, panelists, and members of the public) are welcome to file a confidential incident report regarding Arisia Community members inappropriate behavior.

Filing an Incident Report with Arisia's Incident Response Team (IRT) is one way to alert the Con Chair Team to Code of Conduct violations or a behavior issue during Arisia 2021.

Arisia's Incident Response Team (IRT) is specifically tasked with intaking and addressing any reports of violation of the Code of Conduct or other member behavior issues regarding Arisia Community members.

The IRT is only empowered to take actions that impact the convention at which the report is taken. At the end of the convention, all incident reports are handed off to the Incident Report Management Committee (IRMC) of the Arisia E-board for review, complete with all follow-up conducted at the convention, any actions already taken, and any recommendations from the IRT for further actions.
