Code of Conduct


The Quick Version

Be aware of your actions and their effects on others; try in earnest to avoid making statements that attempt to invalidate or downplay someone else’s experience; and, in general, be nice to everyone.


The Less Quick Version

We are committed to making our events a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or technical expertise (or lack of any of the aforementioned).

We will not tolerate harassment of any kind. Harassment may include verbal abuse, sexually explicit or derogatory language, offensive or sexual cartoons or materials, mimicry, offensive gestures, unwelcome sexual advances, and telling of jokes offensive to others in the community. In general, sexual advances of any kind are considered unwelcome by default and are not appropriate at this event.

If, in the eyes of the Organizers, a participant is seen to have violated these rules, they may be warned or asked to leave the event. They may also be prohibited to attend future events hosted by the Organizers.



Organizer contact information will be provided to all conference participants and speakers upon registration. We can also be reached by email at:
