We are committed to making SHA2017 an inclusive and welcoming event for everyone.
Sadly, technology events have a notorious reputation for harassment. In the past at events like HAR2009 and OHM2013 we have had informal rules but we feel we should make them explicit so there aren't any misunderstandings. We've set these ground rules to make it abundantly clear that this kind of behaviour is not acceptable, so that everyone can feel comfortable attending SHA2017.
Everyone who visits SHA2017 is required to abide by this code of conduct, both at the event and on any online channels. We will not tolerate harassment of participants or discriminatory behaviour of any form. Specifically:
If you break these rules, we may expel you from the event without a refund, and we may ban you from future Dutch events. If you are being harassed or witness a breach of this code of conduct, you can get in touch with us in the following ways:
If you have any comments or queries, you can get in touch with our conduct team at email@example.com.
Finally, SHA2017 takes place in an area with beautiful nature all around. We expect everyone to treat the venue with the utmost care and respect. We will not tolerate any kind of vandalism against nature, this includes littering. We are guests in nature, and everyone is expected to act as such.
This Code of Conduct is heavily based on the Code of Conduct (if not copied verbatim) from our friends at EMF and Bornhack.
