Code of Conduct
Respect others. Be courteous to those around you. If someone indicates they don’t wish to be photographed, respect that wish. If someone indicates they would like to be left alone, let them be. Our event venues and online spaces may be shared with members of the public and employees of the venue; please be considerate to all patrons of these locations.
All presentation material should be suitable for people aged 16 and above.
Any public presentation which is part of any event, including but not limited to presentations, lightning talks, recruiter/job position or other promotions, mailing list posts and forums, is subject to this code of conduct and thus may not contain:
• sexual or violent imagery
• exclusionary language
• insults or ad-hominem attacks
Presenters are asked to avoid language which is not appropriate for an all-ages audience as much as possible.
If the subject matter of the presentation cannot be presented adequately without including language that could be considered offensive, this should be pointed out in advance, at the beginning of the talk and in the schedule.
If presenters are unsure whether their material is suitable, they are encouraged to show it to an organiser before their session.
We ask everyone to be aware that we will not tolerate intimidation, harassment, or any abusive, discriminatory or derogatory behaviour by anyone at any event or online.
What does that mean for me?
All participants, including event attendees and speakers must not engage in any intimidation, harassment, or abusive or discriminatory behaviour.
Here are some examples of behaviours that have occurred at tech events which are not appropriate:
• offensive verbal or written remarks related to gender, sexual orientation,
disability, physical appearance, body size, race or religion
• sexual or violent images in public spaces (including presentation slides)
• deliberate intimidation
• stalking or following
• unwanted photography or recording
• sustained disruption of talks or other events
• drunk or under the influence of illegal drugs at an event venue
• physical contact without consent
• unwelcome sexual attention
• sexist, racist, or other exclusionary jokes
• unwarranted exclusion from conference or related events based on age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion
We want everyone to have a good time at NSCamp.
