Workshop Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our workshop are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody.

tl; dr: be excellent to each other.

Need Help?

You can reach the course director, Titus Brown, at or via the cell phone number he has sent out. You can also talk to any of the instructors or TAs if you need immediate help, or (in an emergency) call 911.

Sue McClatchy, is the person to contact if Titus is not available or there are larger problems; she is readily available by e-mail.

The Quick Version

Our workshop is dedicated to providing a harassment-free workshop experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of workshop participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any workshop venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Workshop participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the workshop without a refund at the discretion of the workshop organisers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes 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.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the workshop organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the workshop with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of workshop staff immediately.

Workshop instructors and TAs will be happy to help participants contact KBS security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the workshop. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at workshop and workshop venues and workshop-related social events.
