Code of Conduct
Pacific++ is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone,
regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race,
religion or political affiliation.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
-   Offensive verbal comments related to
sexual orientation, disability, physical
appearance, body size, race, religion or political affiliation
-   Displaying sexual images
-   Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or
-   Unwanted photography or recording
-   Sustained disruption of talks or other
-   Inappropriate physical contact
-   Unwelcome sexual attention
All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many
different backgrounds. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Sexual
language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Excessive
swearing and offensive jokes are not appropriate for Pacific++.
We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. If a participant
engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the conference organizers may take
any action they deem appropriate, including expulsion from the conference with no refund.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other
concerns, you can either:
-   Speak with conference staff (identifiable
by 'Staff' lanyard)
-   Email the conference organiser [email protected]
-   Anonymously report the incident here
All reports and concerns are kept confidential.
Conference staff will be happy to help participants 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. We value your attendance.
