- Use of sexualized language, images, or clothing. This includes presentations, slides, and speaker content.
- Possession and/or use of illegal substances

Our definition of harassment includes:
- Unwelcome or hostile behaviour, including verbal or written comments that intimidate, create discomfort, or interfere with a person’s participation in the conference
- Unwelcome physical contact
- Unwelcome sexual attention
Consequences of Unacceptable Behaviour
Participants asked to stop unacceptable behaviour are expected to comply immediately. Participants who violate the Code of Conduct may be expelled from the conference and related-activities without a refund and/or banned from future events at the discretion of the organizers.
If You Experience or Witness Unacceptable Behaviour
We need your help to keep the conference community safe, accountable and responsible. If you experience or witness any forms of unacceptable behaviour, please bring your concerns to the immediate attention of conference staff (who will be wearing easily identifiable conference t-shirts) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Conference staff will be happy to assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.
