We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue.

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.
