All participants at the European Cloud Conference and related events including those on digital platforms, are expected to abide by our anti-harassment policy, and conduct themselves in a professional and appropriate manner, to ensure that all can enjoy a harassment-free event. The Conference & Event organizers are dedicated to providing an inclusive, respectful, safe, friendly, and welcoming events for all participants both offline and online. Participants include European Cloud Conference staff, exhibitor staff, volunteers, speakers and attending delegates.
We expect all event participants to uphold the principles of this Code of Conduct, which covers the main Conference and all related events [in person and digital] and activities. We do not tolerate disruptive or disrespectful behavior, messages, images, or interactions by any participant, in any form, at any aspect of the program including business and social activities, regardless of location.
Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination (related to gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion), sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate language and/or physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.
Exhibitors in the Expo Hall, sponsor booths, or similar activities are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, exhibitors 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.
Photography, video, recording or screen- captures of session content or presentations in any format shared in social channels is prohibited. We encourage everyone to assist in creating a welcoming and safe environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the event organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender and/or expulsion from the event (with no refund). If you are being harassed, if you notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of event staff immediately. At the European Cloud Conference, staff can be identified as those in shirts / gilets and may be wearing headsets. A Staff Member is always available at the Conference Registration Desk (Where you picked up your conference badge at the start of the event). Conference management will be able to help participants contact venue security or relevant local law enforcement, provide escorts if requested, and/or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. At European Cloud Conference digital events if you are experiencing or witnessing anything that violates this code of conduct, please report any concerns, harassing behavior, suspicious, or disruptive activity to the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org
We value your attendance and want the European Cloud Conference & related events to be a safe place for everybody.
