Code of Conduct

This code of conduct regulates the activities of the maintainers and contributors to the RADICAL-Pilot (RP) project.

Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, sexual identity and orientation, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, or religion.

Our Standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language;

  • being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences;

  • gracefully accepting constructive criticism;

  • focusing on what is best for the community as opposed to personal agendas and preferences;

  • showing empathy and exercising emotional responsibility towards other community members;

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

  • Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks

  • the use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances;

  • public or private harassment;

  • publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission;

  • other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting, as defined by the ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.

Our Responsibilities

Maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.


This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event, or publishing material related to the project. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project maintainers.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the project’s Principal Investigators (PIs) at and All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The PIs are obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.


This Code of Conduct is adapted from the Contributor Covenant, version 1.4, and from the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct.
