StatPhys27 was conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles as stated in the IUPAP resolution passed by the General Assembly in 2008 and 2011. In particular, no bona fide scientist was excluded from participation on the grounds of national origin, nationality, or political considerations unrelated to science. It is the policy of the IUPAP that all participants at an IUPAP-supported Conference will enjoy a comfortable experience, and that they will treat each other with respect at all times. The conference organizers named four advisors who were available to consult with those who suffered from harassment and to counsel those accused of harassment [Section 4 IUPAP Conference Policies]. Fortunately, the atmosphere of StatPhys27 was very friendly and there was no need for the counselors to act.
