Code of Conduct

With the ethos of this tournament, which is in part to make science accessible to all at a young age and to members of the public, we believe it is great to have intermediary events, such as domestic tournaments, go on. It is encouraged these be as open as possible for these members of society to see. Considering the openness and timing of these events before the final tournament and also with some works going onto impact-wielding scientific publications. We would like to remind teams, especially team members and team leaders that they should maintain scientific integrity, as is expected amongst academic staff when attending conferences and seeing unpublished works, etc. We stress the importance of bearing in mind positive scientific ethics when participating in the tournament as a spectator or as a participant. In case of potential plagiarism, we remind you that there are rules in place in this tournament to tackle plagiarism/intellectual theft and we advise that issues be brought to us first should they arise.

We are summarising the values and principles of the event in our Code of Conduct.
