Harassment includes, but is not limited to, offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.
We expect participants to follow these rules during the conference, workshop venues and conference-related social events.
Conference staff will offer help to participants to contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. Conference staff can be identified as they’ll be wearing branded t-shirts.
If you are being target of harassment or discrimination —or you witness these behaviors— please contact us at [email protected], by phone at +5491167990445 (Alejandro Oviedo) or send an anonymous report here. All concerns shared with the organizers will be kept confidential.
