Code of Conduct
IT Matters is a friendly conference where everyone should feel welcome, safe and comfortable to share ideas and engage in open discussion without threat of intimidation or public humiliation. Please be respectful in person and online towards other delegates, speakers, organisers and staff.
We value your attendance. We are committed to providing a harassment-free and inclusive conference and competition experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, body size, race, religion or being non-beliver.
Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants who violate these rules may be expelled from the conference at the discretion of the conference organisers. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments, 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 behaviour are expected to comply immediately. These policies apply in every space at the venue related to conference activity, and to all participants in every role.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately.
Conference staff can be identified by their t-shirts or/and badges.
We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and event-related social events.
Thank you for your cooperation.
