We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free, educational and enjoyable conference experience for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race or religion. To that end, this code of conduct details the behaviour we don’t support.
All communication and interactions should be appropriate for a professional audience. Comments or images that are defamatory, slanderous, discriminatory, obscene or of a sexual nature are prohibited.
Harassment includes offensive verbal or online based comments in relation to the above, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
We do not tolerate harassment of delegates, speakers or staff in any form during conference sessions, online or on the expo floor. Any attendee violating these rules will be asked to stop any harassing behaviour immediately and subsequently may be removed from the show without refund or liability at the discretion of the conference organisers.
If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed, or have any other concerns please contact the conference organisers immediately via the registration desk.
Sponsors and exhibitors on the expo floor are also subject to the anti harassment policy. Exhibitors should not use sexualised images, activities or uniforms, which in any way could create a sexualised environment.
We thank our attendees for your help in keeping the event welcoming, respectful and a friendly to all participants.
