Longer version

GNOME Summit is a welcoming and friendly event, which allows GNOME contributors and newcomers to plan for and work collaboratively on the newest GNOME features.

GNOME Summit is dedicated to providing a safe and friendly conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to any of the above qualities, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Sexist, racist, or other exclusionary comments or jokes are not appropriate for GNOME Summit. Such content and remarks can be harassing to people by making them feel excluded by other attendees.

Participants asked to stop any harassing or inappropriate behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the code of conduct support team members may issue a warning for an unintentional or minor offense or expel the participant from the conference for repeat or serious offense. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please immediately contact one of the code of conduct support team members. These people will be introduced at the opening for the conference.

Code of conduct support team members will be able to address the harassing or inappropriate behavior with the offender, provide escorts, contact local law enforcement, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
