Conference Attendee Policy Published

As we want all our attendees to have a great experience at our conference and to provide an adequate environment, we have developed the conference attendee policy. All participants are valuable parts of the Desktop Summit. We want to make this a wonderful event for all of them.

From the introduction of the conference attendee policy:

The Desktop Summit is dedicated to providing an enjoyable conference experience for everyone. We, as a community, value and respect all people—regardless of gender, orientation, race, ability, shape, size or preferred desktop environment—and will not tolerate vilification, abuse or harassment in any form. We appreciate that cultural differences may cause misunderstandings, so we will try to clarify these and smooth misunderstandings as they arise. But we also expect people to avoid playing dumb, and to make an effort to ensure a pleasant conference experience for everyone.

Conference participants behaving in ways that run counter to these principles risk being denied entrance or expelled from the conference at the discretion of the conference organizers. Conference Speakers should be especially aware of these concerns.

Please read the complete conference attendee policy. We encourage all participants to share in making the Desktop Summit valuable and memorable for everyone. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
