CopyleftConf is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone; regardless of

origin, race, or religion or lack thereof. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.

Please do not include sexualized imagery, off-color jokes or other materials that attendees may deem offensive
10
 
in your slides or spoken remarks. If you aren’t sure if something you intend to show or state is potentially offensive,
11
 
please contact us for help in reviewing your presentation materials.
12
 

	
13
 
Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other participants. Behave professionally. Remember that sexist,
14
 
racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for CopyleftConf.
15
 

	
16
 
Harassment will not be tolerated at CopyleftConf. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to
17
 
gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, national
18
 
origin, race, religion or lack thereof, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing
19
 
photography or recording without permission, sustained disruption of talks or other parts of the event, inappropriate
20
 
physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
21
 

	
22
 
Just as we will ask any audience member to cease their behavior and to leave if they are not respectful of you,
23
 
we will also ask that you stop presenting should there be offensive or inappropriate material in your slides or
24
 
presentation.
25
 

	
26
 
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If they do not stop
27
 
immediately or their behavior constitutes a potential physical danger to other participants, they may be ejected
28
 
from the event without a refund. This will be at the discretion of CopyleftConf's response team.
