Work-family balance

Fundraising Campaign : Support for students and families at Québec2019


Policy on children attending the conference

The SCO-SOC Québec 2019 meeting is open to parents with young children.

Work-family balance

A quiet room will be made available for participants with kids and for nursing purposes. We want to create a space that helps parents make the most of the conference. We hope that having a devoted room will allow parents to coordinate parental activities, and interact with other families at the conference. Please note that the SCO-SOC Québec 2019 Secretariat and organizers can not assume liability for personal accidents, loss or damage to private property of the conference participants and accompanying persons, either during or directly arising from the meeting. Participants should take their own arrangements. Please note this is not a daycare and no security will be dedicated to this room. If you are planning to use this room, please contact our secretariat.

Admission of young children to conference rooms

Young children may be admitted to the conference rooms if they are accompanied by a parent registered for the conference. However, this admission is conditional on maintaining the tranquility of the premises, respect for the smooth running of the conferences and other participants. Parents are expected to exercise judgment and will have to leave the room if their child is the source of a disturbance. In the event of a problem, the person in charge of the room (moderator) or any other member of the organizing committee of the SCO-SOC Québec 2019 meeting has the authority to ask that the child leave the conference room.
